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.

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.

Meet the Author

Writer and comedian Gregory Bergman is the author of seven books, including the bestselling humor book series WTF? He is too cool to do a "geek" book alone, and has therefore called on the expertise of Josh Lambert.

Josh Lambert received degrees from UC Berkeley and USC. He owns a vast comic book collection, engages in computer animation and illustration, and makes his living in Sacramento, CA valuing going concerns using financial models. Is this a geek or what?

    Holy Shit!

    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~
