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.

    I used to think I would survive most horror movie situations in real life, but then one day I went to Disneyland with some friends and we found ourselves following a mime up an "employees only" ladder behind a building in a semi-hidden area of New Orleans square. A fucking mime. Just because he gestured for us to do so and we didn't want to be rude.

    It turned out that he was just bringing us into a special exhibit about the Disney family, but it just as easily could have been a chamber of horrors where naive tourists are ritualistically slaughtered by lunatics dressed like demented versions of the Seven Dwarfs.
