it is produced by casting polyester resins in highly-detailed silicone molds from a real pig. the pig, we are told, lost its life from natural causes and allen will donate $10 from each sale to the Humane Society to prevent cruelty to animals everywhere. these banks are not toys, they are fragile and should be handled with care. available in fuzzy yellow, gypsum white and boyish blue.Link (via Crib Candy)
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.
