The Geek Girls Are Back!
A large batch of the contributors at the launch for the original book at Page & Panel. (Me on the far left with)
Contributor Margaret Atwood.
Hope Nicholson, publisher over at Bedside Press and overall fabulous activist and editor, has launched a new Kickstarter Gold project. This follow up book brings back your favourite writer and artists from The Secret Loves of Geek Girls with more true stories of love, sex, and dating from the worlds of fandom!
The Secret Loves of Geek Girls was a collection of comics, prose, and illustrations all on the themes of dating as a geek. The collection was full of stories from comic creators, sci-fi writers, videogame designers, cosplayers, and fans! The stories were a diverse range on different topics from first dates to discovering your sexuality and they’ve touched the hearts of people the world over. And this redux project will be the same!
