A very sweet miniature bookcase , probably made of maple. This bookcase revolves on a long steel pin, and spins with ease. The 40 miniature books are volumes of Shakespeare and are printed in Glasgow by David Bryce & Son, and in London by Henry Frowde, Oxford University Press Warehouse Amen Corner. The item is dated 1904. One of the books is dedicated to Ellen Terry, the actress. This is a lovely item.Edwardian Miniature Revolving Bookcase (via Bookshelf)

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.
