"What distinguishes fans from general audiences? Who is most likely to become a fan? This fascinating collection of essays explores the relationship between fans and their adored media products.

"Production by Fans" looks at fans as producers of popular culture (fan letters to pop stars and music production by science fiction fans)."--Publisher's description.
