Robin Sloan tweets the iPad 8 launch

Live-future-tweeting. “Scored a last-minute invitation to the #iPad8 event here at the Donut in Cupertino. I’ll try to live-tweet—but text only. No 3DHD allowed.”

Annabel Scheme

Robin’s novella is now available as a CC-licensed PDF file. I’m about halfway through reading my copy, and proud to have been part of the Kickstarter project that funded it.

Perfect for copying onto your Kindle before you board a flight this festive season!

A choice quote

A choice quote

I was re-reading Robin Sloan's short story Mr Penumbra's Twenty-Four-Hour Book Store on my iPhone last night, and came across this quote again, which I just love.

Since the iPhone Kindle app doesn't allow copy-and-paste (for who knows what sort of dastardly bootlegging would occur should that be permitted), I instead screen-captured the page, then trimmed it in Photoshop Mobile. Suck it, intellectual property overlords!

(Of course, since Robin's story is CC licensed, this is perfectly legal!)

Robin writes a book (and you get a copy)

Robin Sloan is writing a novella, and looking for his readers in advance, as is his way. Read his previous short story—Mr. Penumbra’s Twenty-Four-Hour Book Store—and decide if you want to help support his efforts. I know I do.
