Product Description

Review

""Fangasm" takes you on a wild and brave journey into the deep realm of fandom. It's a no-holds-barred true tale of community, passion, and creativity, where the fans are the real stars of the story. An honest, insightful, and often surprising exploration into the world of fandom, "Fangasm" breaks down barriers and reminds us just how vital fans are to the success of any creative work. It resonates with the fangirl or fanboy in all of us."--Tony Zierra, director, and Elizabeth Yoffe, producer, "My Big Break"

This is a superb book! Once I started it I couldn't put it down, it sums up perfectly how I feel about being a fangirl. This book deals with all aspects of fandom in an enlightening and often humorous way. For any Supernatural fan (convention attendee or otherwise) this is a must read. Enjoy fellow fangirls enjoy!!!

I loved this book and got quite emotional reading it, in a good way.
It gave me new insights into my own identity as a fan, fascinating inside information into the world of the Supernatural production team and a better understanding of the world of fandom.
I've leant it to my non-fannish friends to help them understand my fangirlish ways.

Such an insightful look into fandom and what it is to be a fangirl from the perspective of both the fans and the actors. Fangasm: Supernatural Fangirls is more than worthy of a re-read which I will be doing straight away!
