Simon & Schuster Signs Book Deal With 3D Gun Maker

codywilsonCody Wilson, the creator of the first 3D-printable gun, has signed a book deal with Simon & Schuster for $250,000, according to a report in Forbes.

The working title is Negative Liberty, and will be a nonfiction account of  Wilson’s mission to create the first 3D-printable gun.

“The whole point to me is to add to the hacker mythology and to have a very, very accurate and contentious portrayal of what we think about the current political situation, our attitude and political orientation, a lasting remark,” Wilson told Forbes. “It won’t be a manifesto. But culturally I hope to leave a couple of zingers…a touchstone for the young, disaffected radical towards his own political and social development, that kind of thing.”
