Nerd Haiku from the Author: Robb Pearlman. Behold, mortals, a celebratory homage to all things nerdy. For years we have longed to escape the confines of our parents’ basements, but today we Matrix mavens and Lovecraft lovers have emerged from our AV Squad closets and seized the reins of popular culture. Of course, our chronic asthma and social anxiety still keep us from talking to the girl at GameStop, so we have a way to go. Good thing there’s Nerd Haiku, a light-hearted, lightsaber–pointed poke at the absurdities, stereotypes, and truths of nerd culture. These fun, thoughtful, clever poems speak to the core elements of our nerd universe: science fiction, fantasy, comic books, super heroes, big-budget movies, role-playing games, TV series, animation, cosplay, and more, as well as our celebrated (and derided) authors, artists, actors, and franchises. All of us—from comic book and comedy nerds to computer and design nerds—will appreciate and cherish these gems of poetic wisdom.

Attempted Poetry from the Author: Andrè M. Pietroschek. In my own prose I call it an ex-bum's desperate gambit. It is a collection of my newbie poetry, prosaic & personal, and whoever needs strict academic rules, or stylish finesse, shouldn't purchase it. Feelings, like living a life which didn't run the perfect way. Or remembering friends who died due alcoholism & drug abuse. The overwhelming rushes of emotion in attempts to go on with my life, and the insights which I could express in poetry. I blend nonfiction with the fiction which made me handle it, or to which real life inspired me. Rebuilding a life costs quite some money, and I restarted working instead of begging, as I am now an ex-bum once again. You don't need to read my ebook, just buying it already makes me dream of many 1-Star reviews. ;-) One serious note: The format issues are a technical problem. Selling enough copies can bypass that is what I was told. What is in it: Comments, training poems, my presented cinquain, my acrostic poetry, and some former contest poems. Micro-Poetry & Contextual Poems. Offering a preview: Poetry Prompted © Andrè M. Pietroschek, all rights reserved Poetry is the union of insight & wisdom or passion & thought which only the nemesis called critics may DISTORT
