Fiction Publishing Examples

The following authors have released books, that are also available to buy commercially, under a creative commons license. I have only include authors that are writing about subjects unrelated to the area of open source and intellectual property, since I presume that experience in these areas can not be projected into other areas (people who read about open intellectual property often believe in it, they are thus more likely to support it)

I have also chosen only to included authors that are also selling their books on amazon or similar sites

The names with a ( ? ) symbol have information about why the author released a free version of the book.
The names with a ( = ) symbol have information about how their experience has been with providing a free version
If you have information to add under the different names, I would greatly appreciate it)
