Celebrated actor, personality, and all-around nerd Wil Wheaton updates his memoir of collected blog posts with all new material and annotations as he reexamines one of the most interesting lives in Hollywood and fandom! From starring in Stand by Me to playing Wesley Crusher on Star Trek: The Next Generation to playing himself in his second (third?) iconic role of Evil Wil Wheaton in The Big Bang Theory, to becoming a social media supernova, Wil Wheaton has charted a career course unlike anyone else, and has emerged as one of the most popular and well-respected names in science fiction, fantasy, and pop culture. Back in 2001, Wil began blogging on wilwheaton.net. Believing himself to have fallen victim to the curse of the child actor, Wil felt relegated to the convention circuit, and didn't expect many would want to read about his random experiences and personal philosophies. Yet, much to his surprise, people were reading. In Still Just a Geek, Wil revisits his 2004 collection of blog posts, Just a Geek, filled with insightful and often laugh-out-loud annotated comments, additional later writings, and all new material written for this publication. The result is an incredibly raw and honest memoir, in which Wil opens up about his life, about falling love, coming to grips with a stagnant career he did not choose, overcoming and healing childhood abuse, and the search for creative and emotional fulfilment as a storyteller. From his times on the Enterprise, to his struggles with anxiety, depression, and PTSD, to his starting a family and embracing his passion – writing – Wil Wheaton's journey is an inspiring and empowering tale, a story of finding one's true purpose that should resonate with fans and aspiring artists alike.
