While I was writing Green Comet I learned about Sita Sings the Blues, an animated movie created by Nina Paley. I immediately downloaded it and watched it. I enjoyed it so much that I told everyone about it and have continued seeding the torrent ever since. I was amazed by the troubles Ms Paley had getting the rights to use the songs of Annette Hanshaw, which are almost a hundred years old now, and intrigued by her use of the Creative Commons to make her work as free as possible.
The way Nina Paley freed Sita inspired me to release Green Comet under a Creative Commons Attribution and ShareAlike license (CC-BY-SA) as well. So, enjoy the novel and use it to create your own story. And watch Sita Sings the Blues. You’ll be glad you did.
