In this introductory editorial, the journal’s Editor-in-Chief offers some insight into the journey from inception to publication for this special ‘lonely nerds’ issue. Paying tribute to his collaborators, the piece also offers a brief overview of the issue’s main contents. Topics tackled in this volume include: nerd perceptions and cultural characteristics, media representations of the nerd, alienation, inclusion and identity. The editorial concludes by refreshing readers’ memories on the journal’s thematic ‘authentic interdisciplinary’ and general call for papers, alongside highlighting the various routes to interacting with the title and its team outside of the issues.
