DEADLINE EXTENDED: December 1, 2017

 

[T]o forge another word in the singular, at the same time close but radically foreign, a chimerical word that sounded as though it contravened the laws of the French language, l’animot.

Fandom has changed considerably over the past five decades, from the earliest science fiction conventions in the 1930s to the letter-writing campaigns that helped save Star Trek in the 1960s to the long queues of people waiting eagerly to meet their favorite genre actors in the 21st century. Fandom has exploded from the small groups meeting to talk about their favorite books or films to the worldwide phenomena of mixed genre gatherings that combine science fiction, fantasy, comic books, horror, anime, and video games. Some fans have attended the same conventions for thirty years, while others are newbies to convention culture.
