GeektionaryGeektionary
Paperback | Kindle
Written by Gregory Bergman and Josh Lambert
Adams Media
Release date: January 16, 2011

There is a common misconception that all geeks like the same things. While it is true that some franchises like Star Wars seem to be universally loved by all geeks, there are several different geek categories. Explaining this to a nongeek used to be a difficult task and would require a clever video or PowerPoint presentation… until now.

The Geektionary is a helpful guide to the many different genres of geekdom. There is individual chapters on Science Fiction, Comic Books, Anime and Manga, Science, and even a chapter on Sports. Of course, there are also chapters on Gaming and Television and the Movies.

Even obscure phrases such as the universal greeting from the animated Transformers: The Movie (bah weep granah weep nini bong) is covered. Even a lifelong comic-book geek like me was able to learn new facts and be exposed to geeky concepts that I had little knowledge of, such as Dungeons and Dragons or LARPing.

Bergman and Lambert conducted thorough research in several areas. There are some geek arguments that will never end, such as Star Wars vs. Star Trek or whether Han shot first. Geektionary, however, brings all the different factions of geekdom together and explains the terms in simple language. Whether you’re a D&D geek who wants to learn more about comics, or a nongeek who wants to understand your friend with the black trenchcoat who’s always playing World of Warcraft, Geektionary has got you covered.
