* 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.

* Author and scriptwriter Melinda M. Snodgrass has said that her career has been "one long nergasm." She's an AscendedFan in many different categories: a ''Franchise/StarTrek'' fan who ended up a scriptwriter for ''Next Generation''; a ''Franchise/MassEffect'' fan who got picked to write some of the novels; a roleplaying gamer who, along with her good friend Creator/GeorgeRRMartin, turned their ''Superworld'' game into the ''{{Wild Cards}}'' series (and now is a writer/producer on the upcoming ''{{Wild Cards}}'' movie).

* 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.

* How is Creator/DianeDuane not on here yet? She got her start writing ''Franchise/StarTrek'' fic in the 70s, and has referenced writing ''Series/DoctorWho'' and ''[[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings Lord of the Rings]]'' fic before that. She's very active on tumblr these days, reading and reblogging a lot of her favorite Sherlock fic and art. She's also... started writing fanfiction of her own books and posting them. It's weird for everyone.
