A story on Kuro5shin about an author who posted his novel online for free reading, downloading, etc. Shades of Cory Doctorow! The thread at K5 is particulary interesting as it follows the promotional efforts of the author and the support he was able to obtain through an online "tip jar," not an uncommon strategy amongst webtoonists.
