Wednesday July 18th,  joining our WELCOME TO LA PARTY, Robb Pearlman will be signing his new book NERD HAIKU from 6-8PM.

Nerd Haiku, by Robb Pearlman, a geektastic collection of more than 200 witty short poems that capture the very essence of nerd.

Hot off the success of his pop-culture-skewering Spoiler Alert (Lyons Press, 2011), Robb delivers a must-have for the preeminent tastemakers of today: nerds.  After years of longing to escape the confines of their parents’ basements, these Matrix mavens and Lovecraft lovers have emerged from their AV Squad closets and seized the reins of popular culture. Of course their chronic asthma and social anxiety may prevent them from talking to the girl at GameStop, so they still have a way to go.


Nerd Haiku takes a light-hearted, lightsaber–pointed poke at the absurdities, stereotypes, and truths of nerd culture. These funny, clever poems speak to the core elements of the nerd universe: science fiction, fantasy, comic books, super heroes, big-budget movies, role-playing games, TV series, animation, cosplay, and more as well as celebrated (and derided) authors, artists, actors, and franchises. Everyone from comic book nerds to computer and design nerds will appreciate and cherish these gems of poetic wisdom.

Robb Pearlman is a senior editor of pop culture and entertainment books at Rizzoli International Publications and the author of four books, including Spoiler Alert: Bruce Willis Is Dead and 399 More Endings from Movies, TV, Books, and Life (Lyons, 2010). Recognized in comic book stores and conventions from Gotham City to a galaxy far, far away, he has been known to fly into a rage when people diss Aquaman.  He lives in Garwood, New Jersey.
