I'm not able to figure out where, exactly, this sumi-e ink-wash-style painting of the Alien originates, but it's something else. The garbled machine translation of this Chinese article seems like a promising lead, but I can't make heads nor tails of it.
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.
