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.

    This fully qualifies as a unicorn chaser… or would that be a Fin Fin chaser?  :-)

    According to the description, the Boing Boib community is responsible.

    “Thanks, Boing Boib!”

    My closet is filled with backups to the kids favorite toys. Except one. I dread the day Puppy is lost.

    Come on, this is UNFAIR! I’ve spent these Christmas days away from home, and now you show me this!

    The boy is an exact replica of my 5-year-old Eloy, just replace Fin Fin with “Osito Bebé” (a Russ Berrie baby bear wearing a diaper).

    I bought it here in Spain three months before Eloy was born, and it was love at first sight.

    Little rude to refer to the little dolphin as the child’s ‘chum’, isn’t it? Not a term I’d use for beloved sea life, real or stuffed.
