Dear fellow bookish Newtonians,

Cory Doctorow's eagerly awaited third novel "Someone Comes to Town,
Someone Leaves Town" is out to-day AND ALREADY NEWTIFIED (proper Newton
eBooks: Classic, 2k Portrait, eMate Landscape) by yours truly! Oh, and
I've thrown the cover into the mix, and the Wikipedia-entry about the
author plus his foto there. Neat li'l package, if I may say so myself,
of course complete with table of contents and stuff.

"It's only natural that Alan, the broadminded hero of Doctorow's fresh,
unconventional SF novel, is willing to help everybody he meets. After
all, he's the product of a mixed marriage (his father is a mountain and
his mother is a washing machine), so he knows how much being an outcast
can hurt. Alan tries desperately to behave like a human being--or at
least like his idealized version of one. He joins a cyber-anarchist's
plot to spread a free wireless Internet through Toronto at the same
time he agrees to protect his youngest brothers (members of a set of
Russian nesting dolls) from their dead brother who's now resurrected
and bent on revenge." (Plot summary, courtesy of Publishers Weekly)
