Safar Tours Tours de Malinki, Kostromskaya oblast', Russia
Wow, what a book! I can't believe I have never read anything by Octavia butler before this. This was such a powerful, powerful book and I had a really hard time putting it down. It soars through so many important themes, going through so much depth of meaning that I feel u will have to reread it again and again. Creative, meaningful, disturbing, powerful. Everything a really great book should be.
A fabulous collection of essays, available for free under the Creative Commons license at craphound.com, Cory Doctorow's website, along with all his other books. Some of the essays repeat the same examples but overall, a good collection to have around, though I might recommend that you don't read them straight through. The author practices what he preaches in terms of digital rights and I think that is the best endorsement of the points raised in these essays.
