Fangirl’s Guide is the go to, need to know, access all areas book to all things nerdy, geeky and fandom related. Maggs talks about everything from trolls to the correct terminology for a die hard Dr Who fan (Whovian, of course).
One of the best things about this book is the equal time and love Maggs puts into each and every fandom. No one nerdy thing is given superiority over another. You’re a Trekkie? Awesome! Anime more your thing? Rock on! If only all geeky guides were equal opportunity, eh?
AS the name suggests this is a book aimed towards females. Maggs talks about the discrimination of women in the nerdy world but empowers and encourages the reader to look forward to the female strong future of the industry.
Overall this is a great book for long term fangirls (we all need a new fandom to nerd out over right?) and brand new fangirls too (everything you ever needed to know about conventions is a particularly handy part!). The artwork by Kelly Bastow is a fantastic added bonus too.
