Book Punks are, above all, readers.
Book Punks are feminists, anarchists, nomads, critical thinkers, academics, high-school drop outs, free-spirits, freaks, geeks, pirates, and bohemians. Book Punks are writers, librarians, editors, time travelers, magicians, book sellers, and lovers of the written word. Book Punks are obsessive, kind, respectful, subversive, and open-minded.
We are Book Punks.
There is no room on Book Punks for sexism, racism, anti-semitism or any of the other fucked up "isms" trolling about the internet. Keep your bullshit to yourself. Bring an open mind, and we can talk about all the speculative fiction that we love (and sometimes hate).
