Whoopee! Today's mail contained a much-forwarded, much delayed Coraline Box, one of the fifty handmade assemblage boxes containing carefully pinned-down puppetry artefacts from the production of Neil Gaiman's new movie Coraline (based on the sublimely creepy kids' book of the same name). My box contained puppet shoes -- four-and-a-half pairs, and a foot in flipflop ("Flip-Flop (Left) Father Size 12 1/2").
What a treasure.
(Tell you what, if you want to see how to intelligently market creative work online, go and follow Neil Gaiman around for a month or two.)
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.
