Londoners: Some amazing news from Makies, the east London 3D printed custom toy company ("Toys from the future!"). They've just announced a deal with Selfridges to sell a limited-edition run called "Makies Fashion Mavens" with four characters called Tesla, Curie, Ada and Hopper. The toys are hand-finished and come with hand-tailored clothes and go on sale on August 5 and will only be sold until Christmas.

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.
