Ultimate Geek Fu

We have a simple proposition for UGF this week:



This one was a fun project to be a part of. Beginning with David Brin's infamous "vicious little green oven mitt" essay as a springboard (in which Brin argues that the whole saga only makes sense if Yoda is actually the failed ├╝ber-villain), Brin and Matt Stover put together a really nice collection of original essays debating the question of whether the Star Wars phenomenon was good—or else very, very bad—for the field of science fiction as a whole.

The book remains in print, as well as available in all kinds of e-reader formats. For the promotional freebie on their site this week, the kindly folks at BenBella Books picked my contribution, "Good. Bad. I'm the Guy with the Lightsaber." It will only remain available until Sunday. So first, enjoy the free read. And then...

Let the arguments begin.
