Geekiness Ahoy

 With the Geek Mook launch less than twenty four hours away, we’re happy to be able to provide an update on the lineup. It looks like it’s going to be a great night, and we hope you’ll be able to join us and Matthew at the event.

Comedian Ben McKenzie will be MCing the night, and will give you a bit of Dungeon Crawl, an improvisational comedy show based on the role playing game Dungeon and Dragons, is widely believed to be the greatest invention of the geek mind since X-Ray glasses or the Commodore 64.

Following the show will be readings by four incredible Geek Mook contributors Nancy Mauro-FludeKent MacCarterAngela Meyer and Benjamin Solah.

Matthew will not be reading at the launch, but has stated that he would face some difficultly reading out his random tables in an entertaining fashion, as funny as we all think the entries to be. Yes, pandering to the author is definitely something that’s good for job security here at


The Geek Mook itself will be launched by Dr Thomas Apperley, author of Gaming rhythms: Play and counterplay from the situated to the global, a man who has truly delved into geekdom and lived to tell the tale.
