This 1919 ad for G. Washington's Coffee advertises that it is every bit as good as the stuff they served to "our boys in the trenches." Appeals to patriotism aside, "as good as they drank on the battlefront" sounds pretty dubious to me.
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.
