Free Short Story (Kindle/Sony/Kobo/Nook) - Clockwork Fagin

Clockwork Fagin, by Cory Doctorow, is free to pre-order in the Kindle store.
Book Description
Imagine an alternate universe where tinkerers and dreamers craft and re-craft a world of automatons, clockworks, calculating machines, and other marvels that never were. Where scientists and schoolgirls, fair folk and Romans, intergalactic bandits, utopian revolutionaries, and intrepid orphans solve crimes, escape from monstrous predicaments, consult oracles, and hover over volcanoes in steam-powered airships. In Steampunk!, fourteen masters of speculative fiction, including two graphic storytellers, embrace the genre's established themes and refashion them in surprising ways and settings as diverse as Appalachia, Ancient Rome, future Australia, and alternate California. Get a preview of the anthology by sampling one of these inventive tales for free—Cory Doctorow's “Clockwork Fagin,” in which orphans use the puppet of a dead man to take control of their lives.

I read this one just this afternoon and found it very enjoyable. One thing though, does anyone know when the book with the other 13 stories is due to be released?

I just found out that the full book for Kindle will be out on January 17, 2012 at Amazon's mainsite. The pre-order is set at .99 cents.

http://www.amazon.com/Clockwork-Fagi...4442074&sr=1-1 It aught to have a good assortment of tales at 432 pages long.

The link took me to another free pre-order for just this one story. However, it is a new ASIN, for those who missed the earlier one.

The full collection looks to be $9.99 - http://www.amazon.com/Steampunk-Anth.../dp/B005O2P5YK

Odd. It lists it in pre-order as .99 when I look at my pre-ordered books, but when I look at the order summary it reads as $0.00 and then there is the other page where it looks to be out already at $9.99.

You may have pre-ordered when it was 99 cents. It's only a single short story, though, not the full book (maybe you lucked into it).
