Recent polls suggest modern women want to be with geeks over jocks 9 to 1. We love watching The Big Bang Theory and have always thought the slightly geeky, bespectacled Clark Kent was hotter than when he busted out the spandex Superman suit -- how did you miss that, Lois Lane?! So it's only logical that we give geeks their rightful due and enshrine them in a romance anthology!

Fiction Closed

Give me real people. Not just any people, geeky people. When we think geek, we immediately conjure up someone who is intelligent. This person could possess a general intelligence, or an expertise about a particular topic. Often, they are, for lack of a better word, awkward. Yet irresistibly adorable in their awkwardness. (Oh, wait, is that just me?) Hit me with your best geeky shot—sci-fi geeks, physics geeks, tech geeks, gamer geeks, band geeks, and everything in between—and tell the tale of their romance. Is your protagonist obsessed with Batman and he falls for someone dressed as Cat-Woman at ComicCon? Or is it the quiet computer programmer who slips secret love messages to her co-worker into her code? Your possibilities are virtually endless.
