NOTES
Available at www.lulu.com/johnbooth in physical form, as well as a $5 digital download.

This edition features a cover by artist and author Kirk Demarais (Life of the Party: A Visual History of the S.S. Adams Company) and an added foreword from “Darths and Droids” and “Irregular Webcomic” creator and astrophysics Ph.D. David Morgan-Mar.

This is considered a "revised" edition, because aside from the new foreword, there have been no changes to the actual content of the book.

SYNOPSIS
Opening that first Darth Vader figure and putting him in a Landspeeder. Imagining a snowy elementary school playground as the wastes of Hoth. Seeing Return of the Jedi on opening night. Moments like these - and a galaxy more - make up three decades of "Memoirs of a Star Wars Geek." John takes the reader from a childhood packed with Star Wars guys (never "action figures") and Christmas wishes both fulfilled and unrealized, through the years when the trilogy lay dormant to the mainstream public's eye, and into an age of seeing George Lucas' universe as an adult while exploring it again as a parent. Gracefully laying bare both the good and not-so-good times, this collection, with its origins as a series on his web site, FieldsEdge.com, is a love letter from a self-aware geek written under the sometimes harsh light of hindsight, softened with understanding. It captures the innocence and wonder and infinite possibilities of what it meant to an eight-year-old to Collect All 21!
