This is weird, poignant and...I don't know. This Afghan guy swallows stones for attention. He dreams of marrying a U.S. female pilot who will fly him away to Dubai or the U.S....Link Discuss (Thanks, Pat!)
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
