Get your geek on with this comprehensive list of cultural touchstones for today's well-rounded nerd—from anime to tech to zombie movies.

Whether it's the most recent tweet from Felicia Day, the latest Terry Pratchett adaptation, or the newest anything from Joss Whedon, the world is a smoking hot, happening place for Geeks.

Geek Lust, a humorous celebration of Geekdom's frenzied desires, heats it up like 1.21 Giga-Suns. It spotlights some of the awesomest real and fictional geeks in history, including Einstein, Madame Curie, Harry Potter, and Steve Urkel (!); features classic science fiction and horror stories; the greatest experiences to have playing video games; gadgets gone wild; various top lists such as the hottest cryptids; and things from Star Wars that could be euphemisms for your genitals.

If you yearn for time travel, robotics and cloning; if Kirk still captains your imagination; and if, when all is said and done, you still can't decide between Linda Carter's Wonder Woman or Lucy Lawless's Xena, Warrior Princess, welcome to Geek Lust.

And by the way, is it hot in here or did the next-generation iPhone just drop?
