  • Description or summary of the book: An amazing journey through the thriving worlds of fantasy and gaming What could one man find if he embarked on a journey through fantasy world after fantasy world? In an enthralling blend of travelogue, pop culture analysis, and memoir, forty-year-old former D&D addict Ethan Gilsdorf crisscrosses America, the world, and other worlds-from Boston to New Zealand, and Planet Earth to the realm of Aggramar. 'For anyone who has ever spent time within imaginary realms, the book will speak volumes. For those who have not, it will educate and enlighten.' -Wired.com 'Gandalf's got nothing on Ethan Gilsdorf, except for maybe the monster white beard. In his new book, Fantasy Freaks and Gaming Geeks, Gilsdorf ...offers an epic quest for reality within a realm of magic.' -Boston Globe 'Imagine this: Lord of the Rings meets Jack Kerouac's On the Road.' -National Public Radio's 'Around and About' 'What does it mean to be a geek? ...Fantasy Freaks and Gaming Geeks tackles that question with strength and dexterity...part personal odyssey, part medieval mid-life crisis, and part wide-ranging survey of all things freaky and geeky ...playful ...funny and poignant...It's a fun ride and it poses a question that goes to the very heart of fantasy, namely: What does the urge to become someone else tell us about ourselves?' -Huffington Post
