Cory Doctorow coming to East Lansing!

Book Signing Info

Cory Doctorow, who in my humble opinion is one of the best SciFi authors to publish in the last twenty years, is coming to Lansing!

Earlier this week I found out that his newest book (Someone Comes To Town, Someone Leaves Town) had been released, and in his usual style Cory released it online as a free download while the paper copies were hitting shelves. Unlike the RIAA and many other companies who fear the Internet’s ability to spread content, Cory believes that ultimately the word of mouth downloads will lead to more people purchasing hard copies, and he’s right. More importantly, releasing entire novels online opens his work up to the entire world, not just those of us lucky enough to afford daily trips to the book store.

Anyhow, Mr. Doctorow will be in East Lansing on July 5th at the Archives Bookstore and July 7th at Barnes & Noble. Check the links above for more info.

See you there 🙂

P.S.: How many SciFi authors keep Flickr accounts?
