Overview

"The last WoW module was clunky and a bit slow on my rig but it had a great toolset for building adventures for my avatar. Now I'm at sixtieth level! Awesome!"

Whether it's about science fiction, Star Trek, sports, comics, or computers, geekspeak is full of mysterious words and phrases. But now there's an easy way to understand what it's all about.

With this book you can dork out with the best of 'em. Here are more than 1,000 words and their definitions, including such gems as:

  • LARP
  • Red Shirt
  • Wilhelm Scream
  • Xenomorph
  • Munchkin*

So don't worry if you don't know what a midochlorian is or what to do with a proton pack. With this book, you'll never be confused again.

*Which doesn't mean what you think it means, unless you're a fan of roleplaying games.

I can totally relate to the "fanfiction" moment! There was an author visit at our middle school, and I was falling asleep. Then she mentioned "fanfictions" and every single girl in the room freaked out while the guys (like the idiots they are) were like, "what's fanfiction?" My life was then almost complete. Also, since I read the comments and you people like fanfictions, I'll give you the descriptions and links to mine. :-) The Homunculus with the Kind Heart (A Fullmetal Alchemist fanfiction)- Cassandra Clair has been on the run from the military for several years. Hiding from them since the day her younger brother was murdered in front of her. Now fifteen, the Homunculi have finally caught her. Now that she's a Homunculus, she is tasked with capturing the Fullmetal Alchemist. But will the human in her be te end of them both? An EdwardXOC. Rated M for later chapters. Find chapter one at 'fullmetal alchemist' res one (I haven't named this one yet. It's a Soul Eater fanfiction, though.)- Wait, Death the Kid has a SISTER?! Prehaps the most powerful soul Kid has ever met, he's shocked to learn that this shy girl is his younger sister. But he can't help falling for her. And with the upcoming invasion of Arachnaphobia, this new arrival could be the DWMA's greatest ally, or their falling star. Rated T for language, violence, and Goper's sucky attempt at rape. Found at 'soul eater' all res Thanks!! ~TheFullmetalHomunculus~
