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

My Mother Was A Computer from the Author: N. Katherine Hayles. We live in a world, according to N. Katherine Hayles, where new languages are constantly emerging, proliferating, and fading into obsolescence. These are languages of our own making: the programming languages written in code for the intelligent machines we call computers. Hayles's latest exploration provides an exciting new way of understanding the relations between code and language and considers how their interactions have affected creative, technological, and artistic practices. My Mother Was a Computer explores how the impact of code on everyday life has become comparable to that of speech and writing: language and code have grown more entangled, the lines that once separated humans from machines, analog from digital, and old technologies from new ones have become blurred. My Mother Was a Computer gives us the tools necessary to make sense of these complex relationships. Hayles argues that we live in an age of intermediation that challenges our ideas about language, subjectivity, literary objects, and textuality. This process of intermediation takes place where digital media interact with cultural practices associated with older media, and here Hayles sharply portrays such interactions: how code differs from speech; how electronic text differs from print; the effects of digital media on the idea of the self; the effects of digitality on printed books; our conceptions of computers as living beings; the possibility that human consciousness itself might be computational; and the subjective cosmology wherein humans see the universe through the lens of their own digital age. We are the children of computers in more than one sense, and no critic has done more than N. Katherine Hayles to explain how these technologies define us and our culture. Heady and provocative, My Mother Was a Computer will be judged as her best work yet.

Nubia Speaks Vol 2 from the Author: Rekiyatu Lawal Ugboajah. Nubia Speaks Vol 3: The Simplicity of Genius is a collection of bon mots and pithy quips. Here are both the author's deep musings and her light hearted repartee about life, love, nature, God, and even the birds that soil her car. Here are haiku and tanka and similar writings: terse, tight, stylistic poems reminiscent of the traditional Japanese style, but much more wide ranging. Here, the nerd is let loose to pontificate, ponder and proclaim.
