Geek Book Club 005 – Little Brother by Cory Doctorow

Our review of ‘Little Brother’ by Cory Doctorow! It’s time to tackle some YA fiction, and why not also get SUPER political! Doctorow’s book takes a hard look at American politics and our government’s response to tragic events. Can a group of tech savvy kids take down Homeland Security? How can young citizens get involved?

Geek Book Club 004 – Leviathan Wakes (1st book in The Expanse series)

An incredible blend of gumshoe noir and hard science fiction. ‘Leviathan Wakes’ has been on Juan’s list for a while now, especially given the success of ‘The Expanse’ TV show. Andrew FINALLY twisted Juan’s arm to read it, AND a special guest drops by to chat some excellent Sci-Fi! Enobong Etteh from BooredatWork JUST finished the audio book, and is down to chat!

Geek Book Club 002 – The Three-Body Problem

An incredible undertaking in science fiction, and a fantastic translation. The Three-Body Problem is a unique take on the classic alien “first contact” story told from a Chinese perspective. What would Earth look like if we knew extra-terrestrials were on their way to our planet?

Geek Book Club 001 – The Man From Earth

Jerome Bixby is most known for his work as a TV writer, penning four episodes of the original Star Trek, an episode of the Twilight Zone, and co-wrote the story which Isaac Asimov would later adapt into ‘Fantastic Voyage’. His last work was an intimate screenplay about a man claiming to be an immortal caveman. A story almost forty years in the making, here’s our look at The Man From Earth!

Geek Book Club 000 – Superman: Red Son

A HUGE “what if” story that we’re embarrassed to say, Juan has never fully read in one sitting. Andrew and Juan take a look at an alternate universe story featuring the most iconic superhero of all time. What if Superman grew up in the USSR instead of Smallville?
