Hello all, back again with another awesome contest!!! This one is thanks to the fine folks at Little, Brown who have offered me 3, count them 3, copies of Geektastic to give to 3 lucky winners. Here's the info on the book, which I already own and must read very soon.
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!
So, there you have it. Ummmm.....they had me at Holly Black, actually they had me at the title, but then they threw in Holly Black and Cecil Castellucci and Cassandra Clare and Libbra Bray and on and on and on and I am most definitely there. Plus, I am always willing to get my geek on.
