TM: You engage critic Henry Jenkins’s seminal book, Textual Poachers (1992), which you say radically transformed celebrity studies. Jenkins’s position on active fandoms always struck me as interesting, yet rather optimistic-so your rethinking of this conception is quite useful. But what’s so bad about being an isolated weirdo, or consuming art instead of creating it?

This book is a must read for anyone interested in pop culture studies or anyone who is a fan and wants to understand the history of fan movements. The author does an excellent job of showing how different fandoms found empowerment in their communities and in their own fan creations based off the pop culture they liked. While this book was originally written in 1992, it's still relevant to contemporary pop culture studies and if anything provides a fascinating historical perspective that allows the reader to understand contemporary fan movements and use of technology better through the context of reading the book. What I liked the most is that the author explored a number of types of fandoms (SF but also romance) and fan activities such as slash, filking, and video making. By doing this he provides a holistic perspective on fan activities that can help the reader better understand fandom and how it shows up in culture.

This is an excellent book for anyone who considers themselves a fan of popular culture, but it's also a great book if you're studying media or popular culture. Fantastic read.

Took a little bit of time to get here, but shipped quickly and came in wonderful condition. I couldn't ask for more with the price I bought it at. It's a book for college, but all the pages seem to be in crisp new order and the cover is seamless.
