Ant sez, "We are shooting a micro-budget 'elegant-sci-fi' feature in the UK this summer - we sold our house to make the film (a little nuts, we know...but you only live once). We have built various bits of steampunk for one of the sets. Time is running out though, and we would like more. We wondered if any of your dear readers might loan us some of their work/have ideas of where to source things (on a shoestring budget). Any help would be dearly appreciated. Thank you! Unicorns all around."
[Ed: these seem like good people, but I don't know them personally; loan your precious steampunk stuff to them at your own risk]
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.
