Fantasy Freaks and Gaming Geeks hits Nerdnite

Ethan Gilsdorf is reading at the geek-eriffic event Nerdnite on Monday Aug 30 (that's "tonight" for most of you who read this Monday morning), at Middlesex Lounge in Cambridge, 8pm...more info below.

Consider this an off-site event for Porter Square Books --- any copies of his book Fantasy Freaks and Gaming Geeks that are sold actually belong to Porter Square ... so by coming, and buying, you're supporting your favorite indie bookshop.

This is the first event in the Fantasy Freaks and Gaming Geeks "Waiting for the Paperback" fall tour.

Why paperback? Glad you asked!

No need to lug that heavy, heavy hardcover everywhere you go. The paperback is lighter, cheaper and now with fewer errors!

Don't live in Boston? Can't make it? Consider buying the book from Porter Square! more info on Fantasy Freaks and Gaming Geeks here

Nerdnite meets here:

Middlesex Lounge, 315 Mass Ave, in Central Square, Cambridge, MA, 8pm; T: red line to Central Sq

Drink, eat, see nerdy talks, buy an autographed book! (Heads up: -- $5 at the door, apparently to cover nerdy overhead costs like slide rules, cold fusion research, etc).

The Program:

Talk 1: “Mind Control and Optogenetics: How We Learned to Stop
Worrying and Love the Virus”
By Azriel Ghadooshahy

Talk 2: “Tolkien, D&D, RPGs, MMOs and me: One geek’s personal journey
there and back again through fantasy and gaming subcultures.”
by Ethan Gilsdorf
