A person on the Internet is combatting a nasty slug problem with a nastier slug-maze, which promises a fiery death for slugs who stray from the true course, but rewards the cleverest slugs with all the jam they can eat. Let the selective breeding begin! Soon this person will have sentient, maze-solving MENSAslugs who'll be declaring a meritocratic revolution and dooming the poor humans in the vicinity to a lifetime of minimum wage servitude without the prospect of collective bargaining.
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.
