Jedi Junkies Review

Fantasy has a funny way of capturing the imagination of the geek demographic. While readers of Harlequin romances, fans of John Ford westerns, or lovers of historical epics may daydream about their particular field of interest and imagine themselves as heroes or lovers in their genre of choice, 'hardcore' fantasy adherents simply aren't content with wondering "what if?".

A lover of all things medieval visits ye olde Renaissance Faires, complete with broadsword and chain mail. A Trekker wouldn't dream of attending the latest Star Trek convention without his Starfleet uniform, replica tricorder and phaser, and a practiced Vulcan salute.

The happenings of a hapless dark lord with lady troubles and a blue collar job still remain relatively popular,
