    I'm not opposed to hunting, even for sport, but you should at least be eating the animals you kill.

    it's not sport.

    People enjoy whacking off to midget porn, that doesn't make it a sport. (Though it would be hilarious if it was).

    Oh, I don't know, I'm sure there's some way you can find to make it competitive.

    @Beamish: That's amazing! Tom Waits and Iron Man are my two Favorite Things, but I never thought to seem them paired.

    Cory Doctorow - The Author as Agent of Change
    Cory Doctorow's latest collection of short stories is one of the best, most closely focused collections that science fiction has ever produced. Its territory is the near future—a future so near we are already starting to feel anxious about it. But you can't buy it in a bookstore. "With a Little Help" is only available as a printed book online.
    The book is what Mr. Doctorow calls an "experiment in publishing." You can buy a trade paperback—choosing from one of four covers—through Mr. Doctorow's own website (craphound.com), through the print-on-demand service lulu.com or through Amazon. You can purchase a handbound, limited-edition hardcover for $275. Or you can download it, free, as an e-book, leaving a donation of whatever you wish. For a price, presumably fairly high, Mr. Doctorow will even write a story to order, on your premise. What then? You could have a personalized copy, or (we guess) you could order 50 copies for your friends.
