An inspiring publishing experiment continues to move forwards:Cory Doctorow’s pending release of With A Little Help.

Cory has long been at the forefront of experimentation regarding the future of writing; he was the first novelist to release a work under a Creative Commons license, and he continues to release all his novels as such. With this newest experiment, he not only explores the tipjar, micropayment, and print-on-demand possibilities that are now available, he also opens the books on his efforts and allow others to see his results. Should be great data for other authors.

His January status update showed that his release schedule may have been a tad optimistic, but that’s ok. I look forward to both reading the stories, and to seeing the underbelly of the process.
