An uneven edited collection, there are some profoundly strong chapters. Nedim Hassan's "Hidden Fans? Fandom and Domestic Musical Activity" is magnificent. Fred Vermorel - as always - was innovative, controversial and unsettling. But most chapters are ordinary at best.It is worth the price of entry for Joli Jensen's 'Afterword.' But fan studies remains in a dire intellectual space. There is some hope in this book - but it is a slither.

Generally quite useful, although I think that a few chapters can be skipped unless the content sounds of particular interest (namely Shuker's and Michailowsky's; the former doesn't have much real theorizing or outside applicability, and the latter I feel was let down by his PhD advisor more than anything).
