Cory Doctorow's graphic novel for free!

From Boing Boing:

IDW have just published the collected issues of "Cory Doctorow's Futuristic Tales of the Here and Now," a six-edition series of comics adapted from my short stories by an incredibly talented crew of writers, artists, inkers and letterers...s with all of my books, this one is released under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike-NonCommercial license, meaning you can copy it, share it, remix it and play with it, provided it's on a non-commercial basis. I've uploaded the full book in high resolution as a PDF and CBR file to the Internet Archive, for your downloading pleasure.

Collected in this volume are adaptations of my award-winning stories "Craphound," "Anda's Game," "When Sysadmins Ruled the Earth," "After the Siege," "I, Robot" and "Nimby and the D-Hoppers."

"Anda's Game" in particular impressed the hell out of me - I couldn't believe what I was reading but some checking on the internet showed that yeah, some of the kind of flat out insanity he wrote about in that story really is true. If you want to read that story in its prose form, get a copy of the new SF anthology Starry Rift. To download the graphic novel for free, go here.
