Z4CK - first novel written on a Sharp Zaurus PDA
It's 2031, and Microsoft advertises Linux on Edinburgh's largest billboards. Duncan Steele roams a brave new world, besting techno-proles and fighting to extricate himself from a bogus murder rap, his trusty Sharp Zaurus by his side.
So begins the new cyber-thriller from Scottish security professional Kevin Milne. Z4CK was written on the train, whilst Kevin was on his way to and from work. His Zaurus SL-5500 was equipped with Open-Zaurus, and a Pockettop wireless keyboard was used to write the story (I wonder if writing a full-length book on a mobile device could leave some permanent damage to your health).
Kevin is offering the first six chapters as a downloadable PDF file. Of course, you can also buy the complete version electronically using PayPal for two British Pounds (~$3.60).
