3.0 étoiles sur 5 Very interesting, but also inconsistent 8 janvier 2014
Par Everdeen25 - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I'm familiar with fanfiction and its fandom, so I was very interested to read this book. Some parts of it were very interesting, but the book as a whole is very inconsistent. Parts of the book aspire to provide academic analysis; other parts are just musings on fans and fandom. At times the book treats its subject seriously, at other times it's humor or even silly; it's especially jarring when the discussion turns to sex and sexuality in fanfic, because sometimes it's treated as a serious sociological topic (which it is) and other times feels thrown in for laughs or shock value. Sometimes the book seems to be trying to support the normative claim that fanfic is a longstanding and worthy form of fandom participation (which it is), but other times it comes across as simply descriptive of fans and their viewpoints. Some of the writing is very clear and readable, but the opening chapter is opaque and confusing. Overall, it felt as though the book's editor, who is also the author of the academic sections of the book, wasn't sure what she wanted to accomplish with the book, and so just included everything rather than picking one or more major themes or points and sticking to those throughout.

All of that said, some parts of the book were very well done and very interesting. The open sections on the history of fanfic and fandom, pointing out that this form of fan participation goes back centuries, was very well written. I particularly liked how the author made reference to modern terms (like 'shipping and trolling) in connection with those historical patterns; it just goes to show how longstanding the fanfic tradition really is. The section on Sherlock Holmes fanfic, from literally more than a century ago to the BBC series today, was fascinating too, as was the chapter on Star Trek zines. Once the book turns to the more contemporary online fanfic fandoms, though, it starts to lose focus.

The book is an interesting read for someone familiar with fanfic communities, but it could have been a lot stronger.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 A narrow view of fanfiction 6 janvier 2014
Par Liviania - Publié sur
Based on the long list of names above, I assumed that FIC: Why Fanfiction Is Taking Over the World was a collection of academic essays edited by Anne Jamison. But no, it is a long scholarly work by Anne Jamison with periodic short essays by other people with various perspectives on fandom has a whole.

FIC is divided into sections based on several megafandoms. The first four, on Sherlock, Star Trek, Buffy, and the X-Files, are fairly well done. Sherlock and Star Trek both cover a great deal of pre-internet fanfiction, while Buffy and the X-Files cover the beginning of fic on the internet. The Harry Potter and Twilight sections are shakier. I felt that Harry Potter went by quicker than the other sections, and glossed over some things. Jamison glosses over Cassandra Claire's plagiarism (the most important being several pages of Pamela Dean's writing), trying to make it just a game and pulling out the old fic is basically plagiarism anyway. (It isn't.) There's an essay from Heidi8/Heidi Tandy that presents her as a totally reliable point of view instead of a figure frequently at the heart of controversy.

Then we get to Twilight. Jamison is clearly too close to the fandom to really give a good portrait. She is very clearly in favor of pull-to-publish, or P2P. The other side of the argument is given short shrift in favor of several essays by people who agree with Jamison's point of view. In fact, the authors of BEAUTIFUL BASTARD get an essay together in addition to individual essays.

But I must say that the essays are the best part of FIC. The essay authors make fewer pretenses about their biases and only focus on the narrow aspects of fandom that they are experts in. Jamison shows some of her ignorance just by what she chooses to include. Her megafandoms only include Western sources. The only fandoms represented are literature, television, and film. And why not throw in some discussion of small-to-medium fandoms? I read this book in December as Yuletide was happening. Now there's a big event that shows a wonderful slice of small fandoms all at once, albeit also mostly Western focused.

I was quite disappointed in FIC. I'm all for people taking a scholarly approach to fandom. But this is quite slipshod. The style isn't that great, either. The Sherlock section constantly makes reference to a fic that isn't excerpted. Am I supposed to stop reading FIC and track down this story and read it before continuing? As for when Jamison does excerpt fics, her glowing introductions generally leave me with secondhand embarrassment. Don't tell me that a fairly pedestrian set of sentences are going to totally make me see Edward and Bella in a new postmodern sex positive light.

There's some interesting history in here. But take Jamison's point of view with a grain of salt.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 She writes like she thinks nobody who's ever been part of any fandom anywhere is ever going to read her book. 29 janvier 2014
Par Wendy - Publié sur

I keep going back and forth about this book. Some parts are really well-written and interesting. She provides some valuable historical detail about readers' relationship with published material, over the course of centuries, and she writes interestingly enough about the Sherlock Holmes fandom that I went out and found the original Conan Doyle stories (which I'd never read before). But her style can be really, really grating. She will use common terms out of the fanfiction community -- AU, slash, etc. -- to describe writers of earlier centuries, writing in response to books they loved, and she'll do it in this annoying, heavy-handed way. She will explain what every single term means, as if her high-flown professorial audience has certainly never heard THAT term before. She seems to have gone through all of fanfiction, to find the stories that most represent the graduate-level lit-crit concepts she learned at college, and she showcases those as being THE BEST reasons for respecting fanfiction. She writes about the fandom for BBC's Sherlock, and expresses this huge, enormous surprise, that -- Oh my goodness! -- somebody wrote a fic where Sherlock was a cat. Oh wow, somebody else wrote one where he wore high heels. And my gosh, look at all the SEX in there! Did you know people pair him with John Watson? As in SEXUALLY?!? I'm guessing this was her dissertation, and before she published it for a general audience she should have taken a step back and really thought about who would be reading. Maybe a few professors would like this book as-is, but speaking as a member of several fandoms, I felt condescended to. And I don't suspect people who have never been in a fandom are even going to look twice at it.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Book Makes Interesting Premise But Doesn't Deliver 15 février 2014
Par Mary Dino - Publié sur
I was looking forward to reading this book to explore the rise of fan fic and it's influences on popular culture. I enjoyed the first quarter of the book as it delved into the reasons of fan fic's rise, how it started, and historical background. After the first 1/4 of the book it began to get repetitive, narrow focused, and, to me, unless you were a "fan" of the genre explored, quite boring. I'm interested in the addiction of fandom and why such genres and cultural icons become part of fan fic but each subsequent chapter felt like the one before, just substitute the characters. Dissappointed.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Comprehensive and interesting look at fanfiction 1 décembre 2013
Par D. E. H. - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Fascinating look at fanfiction. Covers the development of fanfiction and looks at some seminal fandoms that had a transformative effect: Sherlock Holmes (in all its variations), Star Trek, X-Files, Buffy, Harry Potter and Twilight. Includes a number of interviews/essays with or by fan writers. Also discusses some of the controversies and darker sides of fandom. Jamison's writing is very accessible and readable even though her academic roots are evident. Recommended for anyone who is interested in fandom and fanfiction.
