I'm on holidays in Wales, at my in-laws' cottage, in a little coastal town where my wife and her family seem to make up a substantial chunk of the local population. One set of cousins have a 1950s prefab bungalow just down the hill, built by Woolaways of Taunton. This weekend, they unearthed the manual that Woolaways provided to all the new bungalow owners -- and it's a masterpiece of oddly stilted technical writing, effusive sell-copy, and dire warnings about the depredations of damp. I took photos of the booklet and stuck 'em in my Flickr stream so everyone could enjoy 'em. The Care of Your New Bungalow
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.
