-In this web 2.0 world, where community and not content is king, the fan marks a new form of interactive subjectivity that deconstructs the usual categories of consumer and producer. Paul Booth's 'Digital Fandom' breaks new ground in the investigation of this subject, demonstrating how it reorganizes and reorients the field of new media studies.- (David J. Gunkel, Presidential Teaching Professor, Northern Illinois University, Author of 'Hacking Cyberspace and Thinking Otherwise')
-From blogs to ARGS, wikis to social networking sites, Paul Booth provides an in-depth tour of how fans straddle and traverse the boundary between television and digital media. With a theoretically rich analytic eye, 'Digital Fandom' breaks new ground for the next generation of media scholarship.- (Jason Mittell, Middlebury College, Author of 'Television & American Culture')"
