Fantasy Freaks and Gaming Geeks: An Epic Quest for Reality Among Role Players, Online Gamers, and Other Dwellers of Imaginary Realms

An autobiographical trek through the heart of geekdom, starting with the author’s early experiences with gaming and his burgeoning desire to learn why he’s never quite left behind his gaming roots. The author treks to places ranging from Oxford, Englak, to Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, interviewing fellow geeks and discovering the constellation of personalities and lifestyles that make up current geek culture. Likely to appeal to fans of The Elfish Gene.
