The latest in Flickr user Jek in the Box's series of mystical sock monkeys is "Saras Sock Vati," a Hindu deity in sensible elasticated wool. Don't miss the Sock Buddha and Sock de Milo.
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.
