Writer and co-editor Cory Doctorow has won acclaim for his science-fiction writing as well as his Creative Commons presentation of his material. Now, IDW Publishing is proud to present six standalone stories adapted from Doctorow’s work, each featuring cover art by some of comics’ top talents. Stories collected include: The Locus Award-winning “When Sysadmins Ruled the Earth”; “Anda’s Game”, a story selected for inclusion in the Michael Chabon edited 2005 Best American Short Stories; “Craphound”, a story selected for Year’s Best Science Fiction XVI; “Nimby and the D-Hoppers”, selected for Year’s Best Science Fiction 9; The Hugo-nominated and Locus Award-winning “I Robot”; and the special finale, “After the Siege.”

This special hardcover edition includes a Doctorow-signed and numbered tip-in plate.

You can find the listing on page 307. The Diamond Order Code is MAR08 3807. Please pop into you local comic book retail shop and order yourself a copy. I believe this will be my first time published in a hardcover edition as opposed to soft cover or paperback.
