The European Journal of American Culture

In the next few months I will take over the editorship of EJAC from Professor
Richard Ellis of Nottingham Trent University, and would like to thank him for
all the work which he has put into the journal over so many years.

In addition to the staple fare of the journal (scholarly articles and book
reviews) the editorial team want to broaden the focus of the journal. In
particular we want to include spaces for comment and reply so that
developments in American culture can be highlighted and discussed as they are
happening rather than retrospectively.

I would like to invite submissions to a collection of new essays on the

initial interest in the project. Begin by sending a detailed
prospectus/abstract and a brief C.V. to:

CFP: World-Building or World-Borrowing: The universe of media tie-in fiction
An M/C Reviews "Words" Special Feature

Edited by Catriona Mills

Media tie-in fiction is the secret success story of modern publishing.
Novels based on the Star Trek and Star Wars universes routinely top the New
York Times best seller lists, but remain something of a covert pleasure. To
many, they seem to occupy an uneasy position between genre fiction and pulp.
But within the field there is a striking and vibrant diversity of style,
form and content. Clearly, there is room for critical intervention into
this phenomenon.
