Doctorow, Cory: For the Win v1.1 2010-05-22

Here is Cory Doctorow's latest work For the Win

Quote:
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.

Mala is a brilliant 15-year-old from rural India whose leadership skills in virtual combat have earned her the title of 'General Robotwalla.' In Shenzen, heart of China's industrial boom, Matthew is defying his former bosses to build his own successful gold-farming team. Leonard, who calls himself Wei-Dong, lives in Southern California, but spends his nights fighting virtual battles alongside his buddies in Asia, a world away. All of these young people, and more, will become entangled with the mysterious young woman called Big Sister Nor, who will use her experience, her knowledge of history, and her connections with real-world organizers to build them into a movement that can challenge the status quo.

The ruthless forces arrayed against them are willing to use any means to protect their power - including blackmail, extortion, infiltration, violence, and even murder. To survive, Big Sister's people must out-think the system. This will lead them to devise a plan to crash the economy of every virtual world at once - a Ponzi scheme combined with a brilliant hack that ends up being the biggest, funnest game of all.

Imbued with the same lively, subversive spirit and thrilling storytelling that made LITTLE BROTHER an international sensation, FOR THE WIN is a prophetic and inspiring call-to-arms for a new generation.
I'm posting two copies. One is for Sony Reader owners who have Fontin installed on their Reader and one that has Fontin embedded.

If you find any errors related to my conversion, please let me know so I can fix any errors. I hope there are none.

ENJOY!

The only difference is the size of the ePub. Otherwise, it will be the same.

I downloaded the version with embedded fonts and tested it on my Sony 505.
On page 3 ("READ THIS FIRST"), text abruptly ends after "to Share", the rest of the page is not shown. In pages 6-7 ("AUDIOBOOKS") the same happens after "Kindle or iPad stores".
If you look a these pages in Calibre's viewer, you will see a strange symbol just in the place where the text is chopped off.

The problem is the em dash. No idea why it doesn't work in those two pages. But I will fix both versions later on today and post new versions.

I've posted version 1.1 to fix a problem with em dashes causing an abrupt ending of a couple of pages.

You are very welcome. I'm still wondering why the em dashes in those two pages caused problems where they didn't in other places.

But I just changed them to the HTML code for em dash and that fixed it.
