I guess this one counts as a contribution to the almost non-existent Nerd Studies canon. A slighly-scary comedy autobiography of a life in British combat-nerd fan culture, Achtung Schweinehund! A Boy’s Own Story of Imaginary Combat. The author tells of how he slips from a boyhood of Airfix military models, plastic guns and Commando comics into an adulthood of tabletop wargaming and RPGs. This week’s Times Literary Supplement devotes the whole back page to a review.
