Rudy Rucker posts new novel online for free

I applaud Rucker’s decision to offer his latest novel Postsingular both for free online, under the Creative Commons License, and in print from Tor. I have become a big believer in offering books this way. Very few people will read the entire book electronically with a vast majority of readers deciding to purchase the hard copy. The theory being that people are more likely to buy something they already like.

    I don’t buy many books these days, but I agree completely. My book purchases are generally going to be something I KNOW I will like. I plan on buying Scalzi’s Old Man’s War because I loved the book after borrowing from the library. I will almost never buy a book from an author I have not read and is not a known quantity.
