So much so that you have to wonder how much [[ConspiracyTheory practical research]] he may have done on how to write a Daemon like the one in the book...

* Creator/LarryNiven, multiple Hugo Award, Nebula Award, and Creator/HPLovecraft Award winning science fiction author, space-program booster, and generally all-around nice guy, has publicly stated that of all the projects he's been involved in, writing the "bible" for the post-''ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths'' ''GreenLantern'' comic book series is probably his favorite, because it let him play with a lot of the "toys" he enjoyed "playing with" when he was younger.

* Sportswriter Creator/BillSimmons is a massive nerd, and spent so much of his column crossing over sports and pop culture that ESPN spun off Grantland.com so that he and others could continue. He's written lengthy articles on ''VideoGame/MaddenNFL'' (coining the page quote for RubberBandAI), ''Series/TheWire'', ''Series/JerseyShore'', ''Series/{{Survivor}}'', ''Film/{{Rocky}}'', and ''Film/TeenWolf''. The latter being notable because he actually ''calculated the stat lines for the basketball scenes.''

* Creator/CharlesStross ''invented'' several iconic ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' monsters such as the death knight, the githyanki and githzerai, and the slaadi. Geekdom gets multiple nods in ''TheLaundrySeries'', including a short story where protagonist Bob Howard plays ''VideoGame/NeverwinterNights'' to keep the modding community from accidentally summoning {{eldritch abomination}}s with it.
