Kim sez, "In the 1940s and 1950s, comic great Basil Wolverton's half-page strip 'Culture Corner' ran in the back of 'Whiz Comics' (home of Captain Marvel). Each strip featured Croucher K. Conk, Q.O.C. (Queer Old Coot) explaining the 'cultured' way of doing such tasks as 'How to Go Soak Your Head', 'How to Snore Without Being a Bore', and 'How to Kick a Person in the Teeth'. Dinosaur Gardens has dug up most of these old strips and made them available for download."
Basil Wolverton’s Culture Corner (Thanks, Kim!)
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.
