Free Firefly novel "My Own Kind of Freedom"

Steven Brust has written a novel set in the Firefly universe, and he released it under a Creative Commons license. It's available in PDF and Word; so should be easily convertible to other formats.

I haven't read it yet, so I can't recommend it yet... But it's a Firefly novel, written by Steven Brust, how shiny is that?

You can find it here: http://dreamcafe.com/firefly.html.

I downloaded this and converted it to a .prc file for the Kindle, but the paragraph indents came through twice as deep as the should normally be. I tried replacing the document's indents with tabs but got the same result. I'm a novice at formatting ebooks, is there an easy way to fix this? I guess I could just delete the indents altogether, but not sure if that would completely mess up the formatting or not.

Brilliant, thanks! I'd already started reading it on my PC, but now I can put it on my Palm. (*sigh* I wish my Iliad would hurry up and arrive...)

I must say, he's got the Firefly dialogue perfect; it's like having a whole new TV series to watch. Or maybe like having old friends drop round that you haven't seen for ages...

Best gorram e-book reader you ever owned, no doubt. If I had an unwanted wife, I'd swap you.

I don't know about y'all, but I haven't had this much fun since the last time I was in a pro Alliance bar on Unification Day.

Make sure you take it out someplace nice every now and then. So it don't feel neglected.
