For those of you who have been following this blog since we started it two years ago, you know we’ve been on a search for the right publisher for our wild and crazy roadtrip through Supernatural fandom and our equally wild and crazy forays behind the scenes of Show. Well, we’re thrilled to say that we’ve found the perfect partner in University of Iowa Press – Fangasm the book will be hitting the shelves in 2013!
We hope you’ll get a kick out of our story as we roadtrip across the US and Canada to conventions and concerts and theater productions and shooting locations, getting to know many of you and sharing the squee in person. We also take you with us behind the scenes at the studio and on set, as we ask Jared, Jensen, Misha, Kripke and the rest of the cast and crew our own brand of unusual questions (and get some surprising answers!) We somehow manage to get ourselves into far too many embarrassing situations as we juggle our job as researchers and our passion as fans, and to occasionally make fools of ourselves in the process, but we trust our readers won’t laugh at us TOO much – okay, who are we kidding? Laugh away. But we think you’ll also find yourself in Fangasm, as you follow our story of discovering Supernatural and falling headfirst into fandom.
More great news we want to share! We’ve got another book on Supernatural coming out in 2013 – a collection of fascinating essays on the Show and its fans for the book series Fan Phenomena, from Intellect Books. We’re so excited to have Supernatural included in the top fan favorite shows of all time, alongside Buffy, X Files, Star Trek, Harry Potter, and Doctor Who. Show deserves to be there, right?? And we’re thrilled to have Misha Collins and Richard Speight Jr. contributing to the book!
And even more news! Our first book on Supernatural, Fandom At The Crossroads, will be out in paperback soon, so check back for news on when. And follow us on Twitter @FangasmSPN – we’ll be tweeting from the cons in Dallas, Toronto and Chicago, and will keep you posted on all our book news and interviews. Come tweet us a hello!
