Sew your own with this free sample project from Snip, Burn, Solder, Shred (the Cthulhu mod is at the end of the project; mine is pictured below).
OMFG the books are printed!
No Starch Press and Malloy (the printer, right here in Ann Arbor, Michigan) have made a superawesome book out of the jumbled mess of ill-lit pics and typos I produced–and you can order it directly from the publisher at a 35% discount with this coupon code: MAKEMORE (good until the end of December).
(UPDATE: As of 2014-ish Malloy is now Edwards Brothers Malloy. They no longer print my book for No Starch, but they are still rad and still right here in Ann Arbor, MI,)
DIY Multimeter Kit
A nifty lil digital multimeter kit from the MakerSHED for just 19 bucks. (Lots of other cool, affordable, entry-level kits for the solderer in your life, including a sweet little Simon game, too.)
