These two house-topped silver skulls are 2011 pieces by Danish sculptor Frodo Mikkelsen, whose online galleries have many more fine examples of this sort of work, going all the way back to 2007. Each one is a perfect bit of grim whimsy, frozen moments of urban planning in a village of miniature grave-robbers.

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.
