"The sky above the port was the color of television, tuned to a dead channel." – William Gibson, Neuromancer. People always cite this as a great opening line, and it's easy to see why. It's such a vivid image.Link Thanks, Marilyn!)
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.
