Geektastic: Stories from the Nerd Herd edited by Holly Black and Cecil Castellucci
Acclaimed authors Holly Black (Ironside)and Cecil Castellucci (Boy Proof) have united in geekdom to edit short stories from some of the best selling and most promising geeks in young adult literature: M.T. Anderson, Libba Bray, Cassandra Clare, Tracy Lynn, Cynthia and Greg Leitich Smith, David Levithan, Kelly Link, Barry Lyga, Wendy Mass, Garth Nix, Scott Westerfield, Lisa Yee, and Sara Zarr. With illustrated interstitials from comic book artists Hope Larson and Bryan Lee O'Malley, Geektastic covers all things geeky, from Klingons and Jedi Knights to fan fiction, theater geeks, and cosplayers. Whether you're a former, current, or future geek, or if you just want to get in touch with your inner geek, Geektastic will help you get your geek on!
This book was better than I had expected. The short stories were, as I expected, Geektastic! It was so cool that it talked about a bunch of Nerdy things. Come things they wrote about were Star Wars, Star Trek, Sci-Fi lovers, Doctor Who (Yay!!!), Role Playing, and much much more.
I read this book in a car, which doesn't happen often. It was a fun book, that I hope many will enjoy!
