Reportedly, the latest novel from Charles Stross is not only more of his somewhat unique approach to SF, it uses a different copyright approach. Accelerando is comprised of a short story sequence dealing with a couple generations of a family that gives away ideas for a living. In addition to normal book sales, Stross also plans on making it available for download using a Creative Commons license. He’s set up a website that will have the download, as well as other information on the work. (Via Coalescent).
And, by the way, I finally got around to ordering a copy of the Hugo-nominated Iron Sunrise.
This is the kind of science fiction that scares normal people.
