Peter Watts BLINDSIGHT Available Free CC

Blindsight, the remarkable new sf novel from Peter Watts is now available online, under a Creative Commons License, as is much of his backlist.

So far the buzz is that it's next year's Hugo Winner! Hardcover copies are selling out and readers are having trouble finding it, so his gesture is doubly appreciated.

edit: I should add that the hardback is going into a second printing, so if you wish to buy a physical copy, like I did, don't despair.

Thank you for the post. It may be a good idea to post it in the Book Recommendations forum too so it has the widest dissemination possible. Since Dr. Watts announced he will try to post Blindsight as a cc e-book, I was awaiting it eagerly.

Though I bought it and read it in one sitting when published, I wanted to reread it and it's easier for me to do so as an e-book. Also I encourage everyone to buy a copy, and support its author, help him get the chance to continue writting such wonderful books.

I bought it as soon as it came out, but now that I have the option, prefer to read it as an ebook. I'm impressed that you read it in one sitting. I understand that it's quite challenging.

And I'll go post this in Recommendations, thanks.
Whoops, thanks for taking care of the re-post, Liviu,
