Award-winning author Catherynne Valente is offering her new YA novel, The Girl Who Circimnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making, on the internet on a donation model. Basically, she provides the content free, and you get to decide what it's worth to you.

You can listen to a podcast of the first chapter below, or click through to read the first chapter (and possibly donate) here.

This is a business model very much like what we're doing with Shadow Unit, and I'm thinking it's dead cool that writers are now able to bring you their work as a sort of performance. I think of it as the rebirth of storytelling, in a fashion.
