This is where the GC team will take a look at some of the required reading and viewing in the world of sci-fi, fantasy and comic books.
We give you a reading list and justify our choices. This is stuff that any prospective or hardened geek really ought to have at least a familiarity with, if not an in-depth knowledge and a selection of merchandise where available.
Come on in, geeks; class is in session...

Lesson 2: In Defence of Warhammer [click here to read]
A real science fiction fan should at least have a passing knowledge of Games Workshop's ork-blasting sci-fi universe. Lesson 2 will give you the basics of the universe if you've never heard of it. If you have heard of it but dismissed it out of hand, here's why you should go back for another look.

Sir Arthur C Clarke was, quite simply, a genius. Mention his name to any hard sci-fi fan and you'll doubtless be met with a fond smile. Lesson the 3rd - if you haven't heard of Sir Arthur, here's why you should have. Michael 'Pixel' Flett takes a personal, and educational, look back at the man whom many hail as Father of Science Fiction.
