On the other hand, if you fondly recognize Tux, the Linux penguin, then yes, you are among friends.The idea here was to assemble an anthology for geeks--smart, independent, computer and science savvy geeks with a sense of humor.

And, for me, that pointed to Linux. Linux geeks are smart (I mean they use Linux, after all). Theyre independent enough not to use that other operating system. And finally, theres a tradition of humor and word play in the Linux community.And so, SF++ Science FICTION Stories for Linux GeeksThe first plus in the title indicates that, in addition to stories, theres a science fact article (Challenge of the Anthropic Universe). The second plus indicates an experiment--a story (Roblocks) that cant be done in dead-treeware. It requires an html capable reader.Most of the 0x10 works in this ninety three thousand word collection have appeared in pro SF magazines.

Many also appear in my earlier anthologies. (If words were kilo-miles, this anthology would stretch from the Earth to the Sun.)We are Linux!Resistance is...measured in ohms.SF++ has Linux in its title, and the Linux operating system doesnt cost anything.

I thought then Id make this book also not cost anything. And anyway, most of the stories herein have already paid for themselves--seven of them have appeared in Analog Magazine. (Some of the stories though, are even too geeky for Analog.)Experimentally, Ive found that e-book buyers tend to equate price with worth. So (since I believe SF++ has sufficient worth) Ive priced the book on Kindle at $4.00.To keep with the Linux philosophy though, Im providing the book for free through my website. www.frithrik.com/eb.htm. Go there for your free copy and Ill e-mail the book to you within a few days.

In the unlikely event that Im flooded with requests, it might take a little longer.Table of ContentsPreface01 : The Lycanthropic Principle (About 7k words)02 : The Architects Playground (12.5k)03 : DECFSZ (5k)04 : Teddy Bear Toys (5.5k)05 : A Boy and his Bicycle (4k)06 : The Fruitcake Genome (4k)07 : Synthetic Sentience (3.5k)08 : We are the Cat (6k)09 : The Emancipation of the Knowledge Robots (1k)0A : The Dyslexicon (1.25k)0B : Transitivity (5.5k)0C : The Skeekit-Woogle Test (5k)0D : Roblocks (3.5k + 4.5k)0E : Guess Who (7.5k)0F : The Challenge of the Anthropic Universe (4.5k)10 : The Exoanthropic Principle (8.5k)Book-jacket: Back Cover NotesOther E-books
