Free e-book: "Maelstrom" converted for iSilo and Plucker

Peter Watts' Maelstrom is the sequel to Starfish and the second book of the Rifters Trilogy. Because it's released under a Creative Commons license (Peter follows Cory's steps, and I like it!!), I converted and attached the e-book for you to this thread in HTML, iSilo and Plucker formats. In an older BoingBoing article I found a reference to a review by SciFi.com, saying about Maelstrom:

Like the endlessly mutating and recombinant digital/wetware entities that live in Peter Watts' online Maelstrom, his fiction itself exhibits a wonderful Darwinian adaptability. Internalizing the lessons and modes taught by cyberpunk and fusing them with the Bear/Benford pedigree of hard SF, Watts has bred a robust, streamlined, snarling kind of science fiction which achieves both a sharp-edged verisimilitude and visionary exuberance.

[thanks for the e-mail, Peter!]

"Malestrom", along with the 1st book in the trilogy "Starfish", are now available at Manybooks (http://manybooks.net) in a wide range of eBook formats. Both titles have some encoding problems, at least in the generic PalmDOC versions.
