    more reviews and coverage

    The Fantasy Freaks and Gaming Geeks juggernaut keeps rolling across the landscape, picking up some reviews and coverage along the way. Three recent items you might want to check out:

    1) My blog on the Powell's site, "Geek is no longer a four-letter word"

    2) the sneak-preview of the Booklist review:

    Booklist, September 15, 2009

    After an aneurysm drastically changed his mother’s personality when he was in his teens, Gilsdorf found refuge in the role-playing game Dungeons & Dragons. Eventually he left the RPG (role-playing games) world behind, and became a successful writer. Then at age 41, he rediscovers his old gaming paraphernalia and decides to take a trip deep into the world of fantasy, hoping to get to the heart of its allure. Gilsdorf’s quest takes him to gaming conventions, medieval reenactments, fantasy-inspired concerts, and even to Middle Earth itself—the New Zealand setting that served as the backdrop for Peter Jackson’s enormously popular Lord of the Rings films. Along the way, he meets a wide variety of people of all ages and social backgrounds who, like him, in some form or another seek an escape from the mundane reality of the modern world. Gilsdorf is an engaging and personable guide. Like many who will pick up his book, he’s got one foot squarely in the real world, the other in the fantasy one. This is a journey well worth taking. — Kristine Huntley

    3) Boston Magazine mentions Fantasy Freaks and Gaming Geeks to its "Consumer Index: September": "Nerd Association"

    Enjoy!
