HarperCollins have just brought out a beautiful
limited deluxe edition of my novel Little Brother
. It's a slipcased hardcover, in a limited run of 500 signed copies, and it sports eight spectacular original illustrations by Richard Wilkinson (along with some really snazzy endpapers: a map of San Francisco's Mission district redrawn as a circuit-diagram). All the art is Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike licensed, too, and ready for your fan Little Brother remixes.
Now the bad news: it's only available outside of the US and Canada, due to a really silly bit of lawyerly risk-aversion about territorial rights. I'm working on seeing if there's a way to arrange to do a grey-market export to US/Canada, and earmarking, say, 100 of them for this purpose, but I can't make any guarantees. (See below!)
But the good news for Britons is that HarperCollins will guarantee delivery before Xmas if you buy before Friday! Get 'em while they last!
Update: Great news! The kick-ass UK online bookseller The Book Depository has the book for a couple pounds less than Harper Collins, and they have free shipping, and they ship to the US and Canada!

Remember back to the time when people thought java was just a hip way to talk about coffee? Or you vaguely remembered from geography class that it’s an island in the South Pacific? We’ve come a long way since then and now that we’ve rocket blasted into the tech future, you’re going to need to […]
Plastic is so 2013. You don’t want to buy something only to throw it away or lose it and barely care. You like nice things and want to hang onto them. The Plazmatic lighter here is a high quality, high tech alternative to the typical cheap, plastic lighter you get at the old gas station. […]
Real engineers build things. Super cool engineers build things with their hands and fingers, like our engineering forefathers did. No idea where to even begin to do that? This step by step Arduino course is now 92% off and is going to get you up and running, from zero to hero, in no time. So […]
