What's Geektastic ~ Definition
About this book:
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!
About the Cover:
(taken from web)
If you look closely at the cover of Geektastic: Stories from the Nerd Herd, edited by Holly Black and Cecil Castellucci (Little, Brown, Aug.), you’ll notice that many of the avatars look exactly like M.T. Anderson, Kelly Link, Scott Westerfeld and other well-known writers. No coincidence, since the 20-odd writers on display on the jacket all contributed stories to the collection.
I've heard a whole lot about this fantastic book and was totally blown away when I finally got to read it! This anothology covers everything from Star Trek to Star Wars and all that is GEEK in between.
At the end of each of the 15 stories told by some of the best names in YA, you'll find their cartoon "geek" self drawn with the author's bio in a "Speach Bubble" coming out of their mouths. Really cute. Laugh out loud funny and more geekiness that one can handle, there's something in this anthology for everyone! Each story is also separated by a full page comic!
This book will satisfy the inner geek in all of us, no matter what the age!
