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!

Imagine a mix of modern animation and 1960s marionette show Thunderbirds and you still won’t quite capture how awesome Thunderbolt Fantasy is. It’s an example of glove puppetry, a form of folk art dating back centuries. Set in an Eastern fantasy setting, Dān Fěi and her brother, guardians of a sword known as the Tiān […]

The ARMOR-X Mini Flexible Phone Tripod is a smartphone tripod that is designed with flexible legs to rest on virtually any type of surface. Other tripods have proved useless unless I conveniently have a flat surface in front of me, which is why this particular tripod was appealing enough to try out. The ARMOR-X is compact and easy […]
You don’t need to get an advanced degree and take out massive loans to become a coder. This bundle of 10 courses was designed to teach anyone to code at home for less than it costs to go out for dinner. I was particularly impressed with this new 2017 bundle because it includes courses on […]
