Bookanistas: GEEKTASTIC - win a copy signed by Holly Black!

Ahhhh, that word, "geek." What does it really mean anymore? In the PacNW, geeks are cool--geeks like Bill Gates become millionaires billionaires, geeks rule the world. And yet...I'm thinking these future-rulers-of-the-universe (and, er, some notably awesome authors) still had a few pretty craptastic high school experiences. Witness this collection. Complete with cartoon finishes for each story.
I was immediately hooked by Black and Castellucci's opening yarn, "Once You're a Jedi, You're a Jedi All the Way." I mean a title that nods to the iconic geek film series, Star Wars, and the beloved musical theater geek staple, West Side Story? What's not to love? WANNA WIN...?
