Hard to believe this game is almost twenty years old, isn’t it?

Of course I don’t want anything to happen to GRRM, but if something does, here are six writers who could take over for him.

I live in an apartment. I don’t have a lot of stuff, so I don’t need a lot of space. My goal is to live somewhere convenient, inexpensive, safe, and decent. I thought I’d found that place, but as it turns out, not so much. So, here are six of the worst things about apartment living, especially if you’re a geek like me.
The first week of every month from here on out, Six of the Best becomes Six of the Worst. This week: SIX OF THE WORST… things about apartment living, only at Nerdery Public.

My latest Nerdery Public column is about webcomics that I miss. A lot.

My latest column on Nerdery Public is about Game of Thrones. Again.

If you’re looking for some lesser-known kid-focused books that have genre elements, here are six of the best that might help you find new ways to share your love for sci-fi and fantasy with your kids.
Now that I’ve begun reading A Song of Ice and Fire, I’ve become quite aware that, at the speed I read, I’ll be done with all five existing books long before George R.R. Martin releases the sixth and seventh ones. And I’m sure that, when that day comes, I’ll have to find other book series… serieses… whatever… to read while I wait for the next books.

Possibly one of the nerdiest articles I’ve ever written.

In a world where superheroes and supervillains are locked in honorable combat… in a world where science and magic are both real… in a world where superheroism is an inherited trait… three middle-school students are about to discover their true potential.
My parents didn’t realize this, but nine-year-old me was reading novels aimed at adults. I was an advanced reader, to be sure, but I’m pretty certain my parents would not have been pleased with me reading books with semi-explicit sex scenes in them.
SIX OF THE BEST… secret sex scenes in Star Trek novels, now available for your reading pleasure at Nerdery Public.
If there’s one thing geeks know, it’s which movies show the “slightly-off” guy getting the girl. And who better to play guys who are just slightly off than John Cusack?
I got into Tumblr in late 2008. I’m not sure how I found it, but once I did, there was no stopping me. I now have twelve different tumblrs, all of them for different subjects, and I follow more than 400. They’re not all nerdy, but a lot of them are.
It’s Wednesday, and you know what that means: SIX OF THE BEST… nerdy tumblrs

When Joss Whedon writes something, you generally expect it to have great dialogue and characterization, some stuff that will make you uncomfortable, and an ending that, while not necessarily happy or good, will be satisfying.

The new film In Your Eyes has two of those. It’s a start.

From my review of In Your Eyes, over on Escape Pod. Read.

Long-distance relationships are hard work, and they can be fragile… but, given time, they can bloom into the best in-person relationships you’ll ever have. I’ve written about them at Nerdery Public. Go read.
