About The Blog

Sefer HaOmer is a nerd's journey through the first half of the twentieth century and the stories which helped shape modern geekiness, from the perspective of the Omer. This journey will take you through the Progressive era, and proto science fiction and early children's fantasy; both World Wars and the Golden Age of Science Fiction; and the Roaring Twenties, the Great Depression, and the founding of modern fantasy as a literary genre. By the end of the series, I hope you will have a greater understanding of the events that shaped the modern period and the books our favorite authors liked to read, as well as a much increased reading list.
