Drink Like a Geek

Cocktails, Brews, and Spirits for the Nerd in All of Us

By Jeff Cioletti
Drink Like a Geek marries Jeff’s twin passions for alcohol and geek culture: in the early 2000s, Jeff directed two documentaries about Star Wars Episode I (the first in the build-up to its release, and the second after fans realized it sucked). There will be cocktail recipes throughout Drink Like a Geek — interpretations of Miruvor of Middle Earth, Dornish Red and Arbor Gold of Westeros, etc. — but the emphasis will be more on getting to know various subcultures than in genre recipe books like The Cocktail Guide to the Galaxy. That emphasis should be clear in the intro chapter included at the end of the proposal, which is about an experience Jeff had crossing enemy lines and drinking Romulan Ale at Dragon*Con in Atlanta

A Bright Clean Mind

By

Tenderheart will be a breezy yet substantial read that lends itself to “dipping back in,” a paperback original with a 5.5” x 8.5” trim size for portability (and gift-ability!) The readership is much the same as well: creative people who want to evolve out of the anxiety and frustration that have characterized so much of their artistic process up to now. Tenderheart will be primarily for “veg-curious” creatives—artists and entrepreneurs who have heard a plant-based diet is better for their health, but haven’t yet made the connections between diet, empathy for non-human animals, and creative output—though it will also appeal to readers who are already moving toward a more compassionate lifestyle, as well as vegans seeking creative inspiration. Now that the older members of Generation Z (no doubt the most politically-engaged generation since the 1960s) are purchasing their own food, plant protein and non-dairy products will eventually dominate the market—and these young vegans (and “vegan-ish”) will reach for books on creativity and culture that reflect their values. As veganism goes truly mainstream, artists and entrepreneurs of older generations who routinely experience anxiety, frustration, and other corrosive emotions will be ever more receptive to Tenderheart’s message, too.

Cortadito

By

AN EXILE AND THE FLAVORS OF HIS NATIVE LAND

In the sprawling Cortadito, Enrique Fernández explores Cuban cuisine through memories of growing up on the pre-revolutionary island.  In his sensual journey through the origin and evolution of staples of Cuban food, Fernández wonders what shapes flavor: is it the soil or the community—whether at home or abroad? As an exile, he affirms, “I will continue to sample the crumbs that fall from [Cuba’s] table and be thankful and resentful at the same time.”
