A book and a DeLorean

Ernest Cline, screenwriter of the 2009 ode to nerd culture "Fanboys," is traveling the country in a DeLorean.

If that vision immediately brings the 1980s to mind, then Cline has already done his job, at least in part: The car is getting attention for his new book "Ready Player One."

The book, which takes place in a dystopian future, aims to do for '80s pop culture (such as Pac-Man, Dungeons & Dragons, and of course, "Back to the Future") what "Fan Boys" did for "Star Wars."

CNN's Christian DuChateau recently spoke to Cline about the roots of his geekdom, his current nerdy obsessions, a possible movie version of his book, and of course, that car.

Check out the interview here.
