Grab your oscillation overthruster and shove some garbage in your Mr. Fusion, ’cause we’re blasting off into 1980s obscurity!

But is a book written by a nerd for nerds a good thing? Can carefully catered niche references go too far? And how does its sci-fi story stack up against its contemporaries? Join Cap, Hex, Colin, Brandon, and Tony for another adventure into the dog-eared pages of Nerdy Show Book Club. Find out what other books we’re reading and what we think about ’em. Get in on the fun and read along with us!
