“Infoquake” Now Available on Amazon Kindle

I’ve received a number of emails from potential readers out there griping that my books aren’t available in electronic format. You’re writing about a digital future where people can call up any text in the world instantly and project it holographically on their retinas, they say. So how come I’m stuck reading your work on this crummy hunk of pulped wood, jackass?

Infoquake on the Amazon KindleUntil now, my answer has always been, It’s not my decision, pal. I don’t own the electronic rights. And don’t call me a jackass, punk.

To which they reply… well, you get the picture.

But as of today, I can now join the ranks of the electronically published. Yes, via the Pyr-o-mania blog, I see that Infoquake is now available on the Amazon Kindle. Go check it out on Amazon. Not only is it available, but it’s one of the first five titles available on Kindle from Pyr. (For the record, the others are: Justina Robson’s Silver Screen and Going Under, Mike Resnick’s Starship: Pirate, and Lou Anders’ anthology Fast Forward 1.)

I’m told there are a lot more Pyr titles in the works — including, yes, MultiReal — but there’s no telling exactly when they’re going to hit the street. So hopefully by some point next year, you’ll be able to read the entire Jump 225 trilogy electronically. You won’t be able to project it holographically on your retinas yet, unless you’re Ray Kurzweil, but here’s hoping we’ll be able to do that in our lifetimes too.

(And by the way… yes, I would love to be able to post a picture of what Infoquake actually looks like on the Kindle. But unfortunately, I don’t own one and don’t anticipate buying one anytime soon. So if anyone does get a chance to email me a nice high quality digital photo of Infoquake on the Kindle, I’d really appreciate it.)

    I like this book. The ideas are beautiful and I think the author is really going to develop them well. A very well-thought out world with interesting characters. An exciting read, even though it is not an action/adventure.

    Overall, I recommend it with reservations and hope that the series improves.
