Richard Dawkins has a new kids' book coming out in October called The Magic of Reality, which explains just how gosh-darned awesome the actual scientifically explained world is, and how wondrous the universe is when considered as a material, non-supernatural phenomenon. And if that wasn't awesome enough, the book is illustrated by the wonderful Dave McKean (whose work you might know from Neil Gaiman books like The Day I Swapped My Dad for Two Goldfish, or the US cover of my novel Someone Comes to Town, Someone Leaves Town).
Pre-order Magic of Reality (Amazon) (Thanks, Edi!)
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.
