Choose Geek. Choose a hobby. Choose a comic book shop. Choose a nerd family. Choose a flat screen television with Netflix, choose a console, gaming machines, Spotify and sonic screwdrivers. Choose questionable health, pizza and insurance for your collection of collectibles. Choose Lootcrate payments. Choose a share-house. Choose your guild. Choose cutesy t-shirts with fucking unicorns impaling people. Chose a gaming chair covered in retro Nintendo controller cushions. Choose cosplay and LARP, wandering around DIY stores looking for supplies on a Sunday morning. Choose sitting in that gaming chair, arguing with twelve-year-olds in Idaho about being a fucking camper. Choose feeling bemused on the third day of the convention, unsure about which panels you’ve been to and whether your kid’s anime/Star Wars crossover costume is going to work or not.

Choose you future.

Choose Geek.

 

This week is all about Trainspotting. We look into the origins of the 1996 film, discussing the works of Irvine Welsh, and what we're hoping for from the much anticipated follow up released this year.

 

Plus our Thimble of Win, where Chani sews people together, Cav colours in a man in a vest, and Mike looks forward to a confused looking Australian hitting people with metal claws.

This week, our geekbrarians look sternly over their glasses, tell you to shush, and go back to pushing their book trolley around the shelves, as we bring you some of our favourite examples in the first of an occasional series delving into geek books. We wrangle with minds, drones, and dubiously named ships, we offer ourselves as tribute, and we make sure we always know where our towels are.

 

Plus our Thimble of Win features heads in boxes, questionable dubbing and unholy alliances between demons and angels.
