has begun serializing Makers, Cory Doctorow’s upcoming novel, which goes on sale in November. The 81-part serialization runs through until January 2010.

Here’s Cory’s description:

Makers tells the story of a group of hardware hackers who fall in with microfinancing venture capitalists and reinvent the American economy after a total economic collapse, and who find themselves swimming with sharks, fighting with gangsters, and leading a band of global techno-revolutionaries. The first 50,000 words of Makers were serialized on Salon some years ago under the title Themepunks.

And here’s part 1.

Added fun: Each part comes with a color illustration that can assembled with other parts in multiple ways to form a larger picture.
