"Escapism feels like a fiesta in William A. Hainline's The Reality Enginners, a sci-fi comedy novel that celebrates geek culture with undying passion. Like the fan conventions that define its charms, Volume 1: What Happens in Con Stays At Con  takes you to a crucible of worlds, a hodgepodge of modern speculative entertainment where fandoms collide and geeks rule. If Kick Ass and Ready Player One had a love child, it would probably resemble something like The Reality Engineers. "


"From start to end, this book is packed full of more geek culture references than you can shake a TARDIS full of tribbles wearing browncoats and brandishing wooden stakes at. The author manages to invoke nearly every fandom in existence at least once. There's more to this book than just nergasming, though. The characters are vivid and delightful, and the plot snaps."
--Emily M. French, book reviewer

"This book does more than obtain the high ring it reaches for - it pulls the ring down, shines it up, and repurposes it as a Crown of Geekdom. What Happens at Con Stays at Con is an enthusiastic love letter to sci-fi and fantasy fandom wrapped around a clever story told with aplomb. The plot pops and the characters are deep beneath their broad strokes. The writing is vigorous and packed to bursting with color. You will find this book wonderfully witty and self-aware, with a refreshing approach to fanservice and geek culture."
--Ryan Z. Dawson, author of "Melidora" and "The Death Of Alan Shade"
