Monday 23rd April is International Pixel-Stained Technopeasant Day

In response to a rant by the current vice-president of the Science fiction and Fantasy Writers of America labelling those who provide free versions of their work online scabs and “Pixel-stained Technopeasant Wretches”, livejournal user papersky, aka author Jo Walton, has announced that Monday 23rd April is International Pixel-Stained Technopeasant Day. Participants should give away professional standard work online. I’m thinking of putting up my National Novel Writing Month effort, which only reached 21,000 words but works as a stand alone short story, “Global Weirding”. I will then, as soon after as possible, make it available through Lulu with “added features” and as a physical product for those who want it.
