SAVE THE PIE JUICE. When baking fruit pies there is always a chance that the juice will bubble over and burn in the oven. This is avoided by means of a grooved ring that goes under the edge of the pie tin and fastens snugly, thus making a deep dish that holds the juice.
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.
