In Manic Pixel Dream Girl , a four-part comic, Elizabeth Simins recounts a memoir of being a girl who loved video games but felt that they were the reason she couldn't fit in with the other kids. It's a thoughtful and at times brutal story about identity, exclusion, and passion, and it has a wonderful ending (thankfully).
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.
