Because most fantasy readers are scifi readers (although I detest most scifi), and because most fantasy and scifi readers are at some level nerds (I do acknowledge my nerdiness although I try to keep it under wraps most of the time), I am "forced" (hee hee) to ask two questions:
1. Which is the nerdiest day of the year? Is it:
A. March 14th aka PI day
B. May 4th aka Star Wars Day
C. April 5th aka First Contact Day
D. Should I get a wedgie and shoved in a locker for 1, asking this question and 2, knowing of all three of these days?
2. Which is the best scifi series?
A. Star Trek
B. Star Wars
C. Battlestar Galactica
D. Something else
E. Why you taking scifi when fantasy is the superior genre
F. OK back in the locker you go!
Now for the first question, Star Wars day is very nerdy but Wars is generally more culturally accepted than intelligence or Trek. However, PI day has to potential for businesses actually giving away free or discounted pie, which makes me happy. And I think that all americans can get behind free pie. Therefore in my option PI is the least nerdy and First Contact Day is the most nerdy. (I mean celebrating something that has not happened yet?)
The second question? I just want to see what you think. Leave your answers in the comments below.
My next post will be a guest post by my critique partner, so make sure that you come back and check it out!
