Everyone expresses their fandom in different ways. As a lifelong fan myself, I try to enforce a no fan-shaming zone wherever I go. Want to stay up all night reading fanfic until you drowsily drop your phone on your face? Great! Want to learn to speak a fictional language from your favorite fantasy book series? Sounds fun! Want to stalk your celebrity crush online all day from work? I’m not your boss!
There are so many books now about fandoms and fan culture that I know my own book, Ship It, is just one flavor from the buffet line of fan-related literature.
