They ain't cheap, but Cydwoq's hand-made-in-Los-Angeles shoes are heart-thumpingly handsome. Comfortable, too, if the couple pairs I've bought over the years are any indication. I've just worn out a pair after five years, and I've taken advantage of the occasion to order a new set. My wife loves the pair I bought for her for our wedding, too.
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.
