Coming soon: Geektastic
Following book blogs is a great way to find out about new titles before they are released.
For instance, today on Carrie’s YA Bookshelf, I discovered this soon-to-be-released book which looks terrific:
“Acclaimed authors Holly Black (Ironside) and Cecil Castellucci (Boy Proof) have united in geekdom to edit short stories from some of the best selling and most promising geeks in young adult literature: M.T. Anderson, Libba Bray, Cassandra Clare, Tracy Lynn, Cynthia and Greg Leitich Smith, David Levithan, Kelly Link, Barry Lyga, Wendy Mass, Garth Nix, Scott Westerfield, Lisa Yee, and Sara Zarr.
With illustrated interstitials from comic book artists Hope Larson and Bryan Lee O’Malley, Geektastic covers all things geeky, from Klingons and Jedi Knights to fan fiction, theater geeks, and cosplayers. Whether you’re a former, current, or future geek, or if you just want to get in touch with your inner geek, Geektastic will help you get your geek on!”
What a great title! And, wow!—Cecil Castellucci, Barry Lyga, Scott Westerfield, M.T. Anderson, and Libba Bray! Hope Larson and Bryan Lee O’Malley. Short stories celebrating geekdom! I’m sold.
The book will be released by Little Brown on August 1st. Can’t wait that long? Visit Carrie’s YA Bookshelf to find out how to win one of 3 ARCs (advanced reading copies).
