Cory Doctorow‘s short story Clockwork Fagin is today’s free eBook of the Day.

The story is part of a new short story collection called Steampunk, which includes works from 14 other authors. Here is more about the story from the product’s description: “Imagine an alternate universe where tinkerers and dreamers craft and re-craft a world of automatons, clockworks, calculating machines, and other marvels that never were. Where scientists and schoolgirls, fair folk and Romans, intergalactic bandits, utopian revolutionaries, and intrepid orphans solve crimes, escape from monstrous predicaments, consult oracles, and hover over volcanoes in steam-powered airships.”

Amazon has the free download. (You have to preorder it, but it will show up on your Kindle on 9/13).
