A blog for speculative fiction fans and writers
I recently had an argument about geekiness. I think the term needs to be saved from dealing exclusively with technology. I insist it refer to an obsessive fascination with something out of the mainstream. Like comic books.
Thank you, Stewart. Good point. And I would add to the list: Harry Potter (to the point that it goes beyond the mainstream--yes, that is my entire collection of action figures, snowglobes, robes, sorting hat, wand and spreadsheet of all the HP discussion groups I belong to - wanna make something of it? :), Firefly, Stargate SG1, RenFaires, and heated arguments with nerds about what constitutes geekiness. :)
PS: Loved your blog on why nerds shouldn't drink!Superman Can't Have Sex
Thanks Kate...by the way, the Harry Potter thing, I understand. I really really really understand. You should see me when I get going on james bond.
