British Fantasy Society Journal 16

Thursday, March 10, 2016 - 5:00pm
The British Fantasy Society

BFS Journal 16 is due out in June/July.

The journal is a mix of articles and is keen to accept submissions from people who want to write about fantasy, horror and science fiction. Our focus is primarily the former, but our readers have interests across all three genres.

Academic articles for the BFS Journal should be between 2500 and 6000 words. We prefer nearer the former, as this is about the size of a conference paper. References in the text should be (Author, Date of Edition) with a full publication listing for the bibliography given for each article at the end. Please don't use footnotes in your submissions.

"With great power, comes great irresponsibility…" – Deadpool

In the twenty-first century, the Superhero now holds an unparalleled position within pop culture. Having vastly expanded beyond its birth medium of comic books to what is a fierce and pervasive presence in multiple media, this domination is no more apparent than the realms of mainstream cinema, where blockbuster superhero films routinely break box-office records and more than thirty further films are set to be released by 2020.

Autofiction in English

Thursday, March 10, 2016 - 4:22am
Hywel Dix, Bournemouth University, UK

Since the term was coined by Serge Doubrovsky in 1971, autofiction has become established as a recognisable genre within the French literary pantheon. Over the same period, it has attracted increasing critical and theoretical scrutiny so that it has developed into a dynamic field of scholarly research in France. Indeed, the increase and variety of autofiction scholarship has had the effect of placing the characteristics of the genre itself in question.
