Local Author's, Chris McKitterick, innovative fight against on-line piracy of TRANSCENDENCE: live chat and give away at 10:00 a.m
Chris McKitterick was as excited as any aspiring author when publisher Eric Reynolds of Hadley Rille-books decided they'd buy his book TRANSCENDENCE and put it in both print and Kindle format - his excitement was short lived when within a matter of hours the book was pirated by on-line file sharing sites.
McKitterick is a creative thinker though, so it didn't take him long to come up with a unique way to circumvent what would have stopped others in their tracks.
Chris will be joining us live at ten a.m. to tell about his idea, and there's something in it for everyone! Chris, Associate Director of the Center for the Study of Science Fiction - University of Kansas, has had work appear in a variety of magazines and anthologies. This past year, he was chosen to edit the special science fiction issue of World Literature Today.
