A side questnovella in the bestselling Geekomancy urban fantasy series--when D&D style adventures go from the tabletop to real life, look out!
Ree Reyes, urban fantasy heroine of Geekomancy, is working her regular barista/drink-slinger shift at Grognard's when it all goes wrong. Everything.
As with Geekomancy (pop culture magic!) and its sequel Celebromancy (celebrity magic!), Attack of the Geek is perfect for anyone who wants to visit a world "where all the books and shows and movies and games [that you] love are a source of power, not only in psychological terms, but in practical, villain-pounding ones" (Marie Brennan, award-winning author of A Natural History of Dragons).

This short is the third outing for Ree Reyes and the most exciting yet. When the Geekomancer hangout and Ree's place of employment falls under siege it will take all the efforts of her allies to turn the tide and find the source. If you like anything about anything in geek culture there is something here for you.
Lots of fun. I was expecting a fun one-shot in the adventures of Ree Reyes. Upon completion (without spoilers) I think what we have here is more of a bridge. Definitely left me ready to read the next full volume.
This deeply cool book has everything - it's a fantasy actioner; it's set in a brilliantly conceived fantasy world; it's full of whip-smart banter and sly observations. Running beneath it all is a dialogue about how we consume, in this book literally, our popular culture.
"Geekomancy" is an urban fantasy series featuring "geekomancers" in which the hook is that items of pop culture, (books, games, cards, figurines, movie clips), are actual sources of magical power, and allow possessors to use weapons and skills that are based on those cultural artifacts. (So, our heroine uses a lightsaber, while someone else has a nail gun from a first person shooter). The running discussion addresses the fact that these artifacts must be consumed, and thus lost, to power up items.
