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!

Disney is contemplating opening a luxury Star Wars themed resort next to the Hollywood Studios park at Disney World, which could feature multi-day live-action role-playing games that run overnight, with guests staying all night in the park to interact with costumed characters and automated elements (droids, etc) to game out scenarios.
Bamboo has lots of uses beyond just being panda food. Things like bikes, roads, scaffolding, and musical instruments are made from the fast-growing grass. But unless you are participating in a tropical-themed LARP, you probably wouldn’t want a shirt made from bamboo stalks. So why do bamboo bed sheets make any sense? Because yarn extracted from […]
If you want to work in tech, but don’t have any desire to code web apps to help businesses sell things to other business, you might want to consider a career in cybersecurity. Judging from the apparent complete infiltration of Russian hackers in American cyberspace, it seems fair to speculate that there’s a major shortage of […]
All moms are different. But all moms like getting flowers on Mother’s Day, and that’s a fact (not, however a fact we can document in any fashion.) Instead of getting chewed out for forgetting to call her on the second Sunday of May, you can take care of it ahead of time with Teleflora’s flower […]
