Here's a clip from yesterday's Prime Minister's Questions in the Mother of All Parliaments, the final PMQs in this session of Parliament. The house is crowded and overheated and noisy, and when MP Anne Marie Morris stands up to ask a question about education, the noise level rises, and she begins to shout, and the noise rises, and she shouts louder, and soon she's gesticulating with both arms -- including the one that's in a sling. It's pretty totally insane.
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.
