Linux Novels

I have started reading the fiction manga Ubunchu about some students who start using linux. I was wondering if anybody else knows of a linux novel or graphic novel about linux related things. I'm looking for fiction not like documentation.

Re: Linux Novels

Not 100% Linux but Cryptonomicon is an awesome read hints at one or two of the characters using Finux, which seems to have similarities...

Wink Re: Linux Novels

I just published a 177-page collection of my comic strips, many of which have to do with Linux. The main character uses a distro called SadOS on his computer.

Re: Linux Novels

I think the look on my wife's face as she witnessed me reading a Linux novel would be priceless!!! She'd probably have the Doctor check me over for sanity reasons

Re: Linux Novels

How embarrassing! The info in my post has revealed that I was using Windows when I made it.

That's funny as hell - but even more when I realize that I wouldn't have noticed it if not the post of yours

There is a comic called "Kernel Panic",however, looks like it's discontinued... unfortunately

Re: Linux Novels

Kernel Panic's a decent one. I neglected to mention that there's a webcomic version of my book at http://dondepresso.rujic.net. Not all the strips pertain to Linux, but you can easily find the ones that do by using the tag cloud to the right or the search bar on top.

Re: Linux Novels

asidewalk:

You have just committed two cardinal sins on fedora forums. The first felony, and the most egregious, is spamming. Normally, after having such being reported by the community (thanks Pete) I would have simply fetched my hat, and summarily shot you without a second thought. It's just your blind dumb luck that I bothered to glance before I cleared leather and squeezed one down range. But notice that Uncle Colt is an automatic, and the next problem solver is already in the pipe and ready to go play.

The second was failure to perform the very basic chore of reading and heeding the posting rules ... which would naturally have saved you from the first error. Whilst it is less odious than the first, it is only slightly less bone-headed.



Executive summary:

You have just about fifteen minutes to PM me to discuss this horrific situation -- before you get your creative butt summarily executed. (i.e. banned and having your IP reported to various and assorted international spam reporting services.)

Can do?


P.S. Oh, yeah. By the way, I've deleted edited the first offending post already.

Re: Linux Novels

Dan, I tried to PM you, but I'm not sure if it went through. Anyway, I'm sorry.

Re: Linux Novels

Got it. Shot one back. You might want to duck.



EDIT:
Okey dokey, folks. Asidewalk has been in touch, and has been granted a stay of execution. Suffice it to say that she's a creative lady, who has penned a book. Interested parties are free to PM her for details.

So ... in the meantime ...
