Have you ever been called a Geek ? Do you love reading anthologies ?
Check out the newest one on the market written by a collection of your favourite authors.
Geektastic: Stories from the Nerd Herd
Review: Geektastic - Stories from the Nerd Herd - Edited by Holly Black and Cecil Castellucci - June 2010
Have you ever once in your life been called a Geek or Freak ? Ever thought you were different ? Enjoy hanging out in the library or in the media room ? Reading books, playing video games , watching movies ?
Geektastic is the perfect anthology for anyone who has ever been called or considered themselves a geek and fear not readers as you are not alone as the anthology is written by a list of all our favourite authors and surpisingly they all share a tale in the land of geekdom from Holly Black who met her husband when they were rival Dungeon Masters and has a secret library hidden behind a bookshelf ( I told my bf that I want one of these in my house when I eventually buy one).Cecil Castellucci who waited in line for six weeks when Star Wars Episode One came out in Hollywood , Tracy Lynn who I discovered is also the author of The Nine Lives of Chloe King published under a psuedonym. Her claim to fame includes knowing Pi up to 12 digits and can recite The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy off by heart , Uglies Series author Scott Westerfield was a big fan of Dungeons and Dragons , Author Cassandra Clare is the author of a geeky online parody of Lord of the Rings - The Very Secret Diary , Husband and Wife writer team Cynthia and Greg Leitich Smith had adorning their wedding cake - The Starship Enterprise.
Geektastic is a collection of 29 Short Stories from all your favourite and popular Teen/YA Authors and showing the world that us Geeks are not alone :)
A really fun read and an anthology that I recommend every Teenager whether they admit they are a geek or not should read.
