    Anyone know of writers of sci-fi besides Cory Doctorow and Rudy Rucker that have published stories online using Creative Commons licenses? I've been looking for others but havent come up with much.

    Well, Charles Stross' Accelerando, but I assume you already know about that one.

    Kelly Link's Stranger Things Happen has some science fiction.

    Peter Watts has put a lot of his stuff up on his site as well.

    Rainbows End is in the commons?

    Seriously, read this book, it's got a great end fight sequence, won't describe it, but totally worth the price of admission.

    is Accelerando the only CC Stross? I'd just buy his books but my shelves are all full.

    Peter Watts has put four complete novels on-line under a CC license, all of which can be found on his website. I haven't had the chance to read them, but I'm looking forward to it.

    Richard Kadrey (who can found lurking about here) released his novel Blind Shrike on-line with a CC license, but it appears to have disappeared from it's original source. It has since been published in the real world under the title of Butcher Bird. CC licenses are legally binding and permanent, so Blind Shrike itself still maintains the status, even if Butcher Bird does not. On that note, you can find it here in PDF, and here in RTF.
