WORDs for Nerds


Fantastical, supernatural, intergalactic, futuristic, magical, epic, out-of-this-world, dystopian, utopian, otherworldly, full of swords, full of stars: all of these words describe the books we love to read. You too? WORDs for Nerds is a book of the month club designed especially for geeky readers. Each month, we’ll invite a guest author or editor to tell you about one of their personal genre favorites. WORD’s geektastic staff will also pick two or three titles, from overlooked classics to brand new gems.

Subscribers receive an email newsletter detailing the month’s picks. Already read all of a given month’s books? You’re always free to skip! We charge a $1 subscription processing fee and then keep your card info safely on file. Each time you choose a book, we'll charge you for that book, sales tax (if applicable), and media mail shipping (currently $3.95 and subject to change slightly at the whims of the USPS). Whenever we can, we'll send swag and extras!

Past featured authors include: Lauren Beukes,  Lev Grossman, Sofia Samatar, John Scalzi, Jeff VanderMeer, Kelly Link, and Chuck Wendig.
