Five Gifts for the Sci-Fi Fan


These are five items that didn’t fit into my previous lists, but are just too awesome to leave out. Those winter holidays are approaching with frightening speed; maybe you’re going to give a belated present, so you want it to be really good, or maybe your geeks are frugal and like celebrating after the post-Christmas sales. Whether you’re giving gifts on time or fashionably late, here’s five more to consider.

Tauntaun Sleeping Bag, $99.99, ThinkGeek – You might have seen images of this sleeping bag awhile back, when it was just an April Fool’s joke. Now it’s real in all its plushy-guts glory.

Memories of the Future, Vol 1, $19.87, Lulu – This book is part hilarious recaps of the first half of the first season of Star Trek TNG, part personal recollections by Wil Wheaton. Sure to be a hit with those who like Star Trek or those who just like Wheaton.

Foundation Trilogy, combined $26.06, Amazon – This trilogy is to science fiction what Lord of the Rings is to fantasy. It’s now only available in print as three separate novels, which is annoying to those of us that grew up on one fat doorstop of a book, but Amazon handily provides links to purchasing all three together.

Serenity Blue Sun Travel Poster Set, $29.99, ThinkGeek – Okay, so maybe the movie wasn’t as good as the series, but these posters are a wonderfully subtle way to proclaim your love for the ‘Verse.

Battlestar Galactica Toaster T-Shirt, $18.99, Entertainment Earth – It’s a Toaster – literally. Not all sizes are in stock yet (though the middle-of-the-road sizes are). The rest will be coming in January.
