A reader writes, "Aeronautic machinists Adam Turnbull and Dan Melling converted their Toyota van - called 'Roofliss' - into an amphibious vessel. Yesterday they drove it across Cook Strait (between the North and South Islands of New Zealand)"
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.
