Author Cory Doctorow waxes philosophic about "leaving places behind" after a book is done to describe his no sequel policy, when hypeing the debut of a "free" short story now available to read at Salon. Claiming it is not a sequel but a "novelette-length followup" set in the same place as the book...okay whatever, how long do you think it took Lichtenstien to stop painting abstracts and stick to what was in demand?
It talks about whuffie, deadheading, and sub-vocalization and is called Truncat.
Let's hear what you think.
