Cory Doctorow’s new novel Someone Comes to Town, Someone Leaves Town has been published by Tor. As with his previous novels, this has simultaneously been released on Doctorow’s website in electronic format with a Creative Commons license. The license for this novel is the new Creative Commons Developing Nations License, which “lets anyone living in a country that’s not on the World Bank’s list of high-income countries treat the book as if it were in the public domain.”

I like Doctorow’s fiction and I also admire his ongoing experiment in simultaneously publishing books in conventional book format and on the web. It doesn’t seem to have hurt his career or his livelihood. I’d never heard of the CC Developing Nations License until now, but I think it is a laudable move.

    every time I go into barnes and noble i’ve tried to find any Doctorow book… but they never have any. I’ve been too lazy to special order anything, though.

    What do you recommend as a good starting place?

    Try “Eastern Standard Tribe” – Amazon has them all, as does Cory on his site
