Cory Doctorow makes second book available for free download

Teleread reports today:

Cory Doctorow, whose novel Down and Out in the Magic Kingdom fared well in the p-bookstores after he put it on the Net for free, is at it again.

Now you can download his latest–Eastern Standard Tribe–under a Creative Commons License. This one, too, looks off to a nice start, complete with the requisite Slashdotting.

The dual success of Doctorow’s books online and in print lends credence to Jessa Crispin’s contention that it’s too soon to tell how e-books will affect the print market.
