The Geek Mook launch is next week! One of my Torchwood/pulp novel mashups has been adapted and used as the cover:
Vignette Press invites you the launch of Geek Mook
Geek Mook explores the worlds of hackers, gamers, steam punk fashionistas, trekkies, neo-punk trainspotters and obsessives of all the other fixations that give us a reason to stave off death (and quite frequently sex as well). The book explores the ways the ways geek, literary and human have crashed up and mashed up in our lives and imagination. Geek Mook exposes the fleshy heart beneath the robot carapace.
Caught in the intersection of geekery and the literary, editors Aaron Mannion and Julian Novitz are Melbourne-based writers and academics. Geek Mook contributors are writers revealing their hidden geekery or geeks discovering repressed writerly tendencies.
Come for the launch and stay on to attend Mr McClellands Finishing School (dance party) for free.
When? 6pm for 6.30pm start, Friday 13 July 2012
Where? Bella Union, cnr Lygon and Victoria St, Carlton VIC 3053
Geeky dress (pocket protectors/Cosplay) highly appreciated.
