Geek Mook launch

Melbourne, VIC, Australia
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 and artists revealing their hidden geekery or geeks discovering repressed writerly tendencies.
MC'd by Ben McKenzie, with a bonus mini Dungeon Crawl, plus readings from some of the contributors!
