Never Split the Party (and Other Wisdom from Geek Culture that Changed My Life) — Area of Effect, Vol. 1

Think deep. Pop culture has a lot to say about life, social justice, ethics, and the way we view the world. Compiled of essays on TV, movies, video games, and anime, this book asks questions like: How does a pacifist read (and enjoy) The Lord of the Rings? What insight can we glean about our own addictions through the vampires in Buffy the Vampire Slayer? How can a literal loss of limb in RWBY equip us to better handle our own traumas? Why is it important that women’s healthcare doesn’t exist in Star Wars? Challenge yourself with these thought experiments or use the bite-sized articles in the book as discussion points with other pop culture aficionados like yourself.

This is the second edition of Area of Effect, Volume 1, redone with a new title and introduction.

Release Date: October, 2020
