Doctorow, Cory: For the Win. PDF A6 v1. 11 May 2010

Doctorow's new YA novel, For the Win:
In the virtual future, you must organize to survive

At any hour of the day or night, millions of people around the globe are engrossed in multiplayer online games, questing and battling to win virtual “gold,” jewels, and precious artifacts. Meanwhile, others seek to exploit this vast shadow economy, running electronic sweatshops in the world’s poorest countries, where countless “gold farmers,” bound to their work by abusive contracts and physical threats, harvest virtual treasure for their employers to sell to First World gamers who are willing to spend real money to skip straight to higher-level gameplay.

This is formatted for 6" screens, for people whose preferences runs to small type. (9 pt Georgia for the main body text.)

I haven't yet read it, so it's possible that my formatting has some errors; after I read it, I'll probably make changes & post an updated version.

It's marketed as Young Adult. And I like the idea of more YA books being visible at Mobileread. I wish there were a way to use multiple categories, because a lot of books fit in more than one. (I'm not averse to it being changed, but I like it as YA.)

I do think we should have the same label for the same book. yes, it is YA and it is SF. But I think it should be good enough for older adults too. So I've labeled it SF because I feel that fits better overall.
