From Betty Anne: “From mythical unicorn to the movers and shakers of the entertainment world, the lives – and loves – of ‘geek girls’ has long been something of a mystery. This anthology helps dispel some of the myths and misunderstandings while at the same time offering a peek into the diverse, unique experiences of a broad range of women who fall under the collective umbrella ‘geek girls,’ making it clear once and for all that we are just like everyone else – and often, vibrantly so.

While the title appeals to women and girls, this is actually a fascinating collection of stories that could and should be enjoyed by anyone and everyone.”
