Marc "Half-Life" Laidlaw's gonzo cyberpunk is back in DRM-free ebooks

Marc Laidlaw, the cyberpunk pioneer who went on to serve as writer on some of Valve's greatest video-game titles -- the Half-Life series, Portal -- has just posted his entire backlist to Amazon as $3, DRM-free ebooks, including his debut novel Dad's Nuke (think Fallout, but with religious extremist militants who subsist on "Host on a shingle," this being the cultured recovered foreskin tissue of Jesus Christ on fortified crackers) and Kalifornia, a brilliant and prescient novel about media, cultural disintegration, and celebrity.



Laidlaw retired from games to return to prose (as someone who enjoys reading more than gaming, I was very happy about this), and the revival of his backlist is cause for serious celebration.
