Muddy Mountain Pottery's Raku Ray Guns are made from ceramic, and named for golden age science fiction authors and personalities ("Tiptree Trilobite," "D.E.L. Ray," "Gerns-Backfire"). Beautiful and contradictory, made from heavy ceramic instead of futuristic materials. Link (via Neatorama)
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.
