In the comments for this morning's post on the hand-made Super Mario sweater-vest, Scurra says, "I can match that. My mother knitted me two jumpers when I was about 12 with arcade games on the front and back. I would guess they were made in 1983/84. I don't appear to have any pictures of the 12-year old me wearing them though!"
Now, that's parental love!
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.
