OK, I just started this blog. I will tell you what I like, and try to force you to like it too. That is how it will work.
Alright. I just ordered this:
I really, really hope it lives up to how awesome it sounds. It's a collection of nerdy short stories from some Young Adult authors. John Green, Cassandra Clare, Garth Nix and Kelly Link have all contributed. Each short story is accompanied by an illustration by Hope Larson or Bryan Lee O'Malley. (Whom I adore.)
However awesome the illustrations may be, the short stories are what matter. The one I am possibly most excited about is Kelly Link's story Secret Identity. I love Kelly Link, and I'm sure the story will be amazing. From what I can gather, the story is about a girl who pretends to be her older sister in an online game. She arranges to meet a man with whom she has sparked a romance, but he believes she is her much older sister.
Also, it's edited by Holly Black. Always good. As a Nerdfighter, Whovian, Trekker, Otaku, Whedonite, Star Wars fan, RPer, X-phile and all-round geek, I cannot wait for this to arrive. 400-odd pages of awesome.
Next time, I'll try and post about something I've experienced firsthand.
