Live Like a Vulcan, Love Like a Wookiee, Laugh Like a Hobbit is a modern-day fable about cosplayers who, after an epic day of adventuring through the halls of a ‘con, join forces for a deep dive into life, love, and what they watched.
As any fan knows, much like a dragon-guarded mountain filled with stolen dwarf gold, Pop Culture is far more than just a side quest or afternoon’s entertainment: it contains a veritable treasure trove overflowing with life lessons.
If there’s one takeaway from more than 40 years of Scooby-Doo mysteries, it’s that the vast majority of life’s villains are old men using literal scare tactics to hold on to whatever privilege they have; Stranger Things proves that any group of bike-riding kids are either running from or toward a vast governmental conspiracy; and Jaws was evidence that no matter how prepared you think you are, you should always assume that you’re going to need a bigger boat.
Live Like a Vulcan, Love Like a Wookiee, Laugh Like a Hobbit invites readers to pull up a seat and join a slightly skewed, and reference-rich look at the most notable aspects of pop culture fandom, as well as memorable moments in films, shows, books, comic books, and video games including Star Trek, Star Wars, The Lord of the Rings, The Princess Bride, The Avengers, Justice League, Alien, Halo, and more.
Filled with more self-help tools than can fit into any utility belt, more treasures than can be found in a cave of wonders, and more smiles than can be seen on any joker’s face, Live Like a Vulcan, Love Like a Wookiee, Laugh Like a Hobbit is perfect for any fan.
