"Information Doesn't Want to Be Free" is my 2014 nonfiction book about copyright, the internet, and earning a living, and it features two smashing introductions -- one by Neil Gaiman and the other by Amanda Palmer.
I released an audio edition of the book in 2014, read by the incomparable Wil Wheaton, who also read the audiobook of my novel Homeland). At the time, I tried to get Neil and Amanda into a studio to record their intros, but we couldn't get the stars to align.
But good things come to those who wait! Neil Gaiman's 2016 essay collection The View From the Cheap Seats includes his introduction to my book, and the audiobook edition -- which Neil himself read -- therefore includes Neil's reading of this essay.
Thanks to Neil, his agents, and the kind people at Harper Audio, I was able to get permission to include Neil's reading of his essay for a remastered audio version of the audiobook (many thanks to Wryneck Studios' John Taylor Williams for turning this around very quickly!), and as of today, you can buy the new edition for $15. As with every one of my audiobooks, this is DRM-free, and makes a snazzy holiday gift.
