‘The Fangirl’s Guide to the Galaxy’, A Handbook by Sam Maggs Filled With Tips for the Modern Girl Geek


The Fangirl’s Guide to the Galaxy is a handbook for girl geeks by Sam Maggs that is scheduled to be published by Quirk Books in 2015. The cover was just revealed on the Nerdist blog, and the book will be released on May 12, 2015. It is currently available for pre-order now. It features illustrations and advice on a range of topics relevant to the modern girl geek. The book’s cover image is available on a variety of items paired with Maggs’ “Geek Girl’s Litany for Feminism.”

Maggs is a wonderful and accomplished geek writer who currently works as an Associate Editor for The Mary Sue. Previously she was the weekend editor of Geekosystem, and has made multiple television appearances to discuss geek topics.

Fanfic, cosplay, cons, books, memes, podcasts, vlogs, OTPs and RPGs and MMOs and more—it’s never been a better time to be a girl geek. The Fangirl’s Guide to the Galaxy is the ultimate handbook for ladies living the nerdy life, a fun and feminist take on the often male-dominated world of geekdom.

With delightful illustrations and an unabashed love for all the in(ternet)s and outs of geek culture, this book is packed with tips, playthroughs, and cheat codes for everything from starting an online fan community to planning a convention visit to supporting fellow female geeks in the wild.
