      FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

      April 15, 2008

      Today, April 15, 2008, is tax day in the USA and we all need cheering
      up. We�re celebrating at Small Beer Press by publishing John Kessel�s
      first collection of short stories in ten years, The Baum Plan for
      Financial Independence and Other Stories, as well as releasing it as
      a free download in a number of completely open formats�with, of
      course, no Digital Rights Management (DRM).

      The Baum Plan includes Kessel�s Tiptree Award winning �Stories for
      Men� (gender inequality meet Fight Club . . . on the moon), �Pride
      and Prometheus,� a mashup of Frankenstein and Jane Austen, and
      �Powerless,� an amazing mix of pulp fictions, paranoia, and academia.

      The Baum Plan is licensed under a Creative Commons (Attribution-
      NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 license allowing readers to share the
      stories with friends and generally have at them in any remixing/

      collection is provided in these formats: low-res PDF, HTML, RTF, and
      text file. We encourage any and all conversions into other formats.

      John Kessel is the co-director of the creative writing program at
      North Carolina State University in Raleigh. A winner of the Nebula,
      Sturgeon, Locus, and Tiptree Awards, his books include Good News from
      Outer Space, Corrupting Dr. Nice, and The Pure Product. His story
      collection, Meeting in Infinity, was a New York Times Notable Book of
      1992. Most recently, with James Patrick Kelly he edited the
      anthologies Feeling Very Strange: The Slipstream Anthology and
      Rewired: The Post-Cyberpunk Anthology. He lives with his wife and
      daughter in Raleigh, North Carolina.
