#BookReview: Fandom: Fic Writers, Vidders, Gamers, Artists, and Cosplayers by Francesca Dipiazza with @endyochita


About the Book:

Have you ever finished a book or TV series and wished for more? Created stories, art, or videos based on a game? Dressed up as your favorite character? If so, you've entered fandom. Fan writers expand and mix up stories, like sending the Star Trekcrew to Hogwarts. Cosplayers sew Star Wars and Sailor Mooncostumes, and fan filmmakers make music video tributes. Fans also enrich invented worlds with greater diversity, creating female and multiracial avatars for games peopled only with white male characters. Tour fandom's history and meet fan writers, video-makers, artists, costumers, and gamers who celebrate the things they love and shape fan communities online and in real life.

About the Author:
Francesca Davis DiPiazza grew up loving the smell of books; but as soon as she saw a computer, she thought, Terrific! more ways to share more words with more people! Online since 1994, she still uses an orange 1970s rotary-dial phone. One of her cultural geography books for Lerner Publishing Group, Zimbabwe in Pictures, won the Society of School Librarians International Book Award.

Notes and Opinions:  This book was an informative book about fandoms and what you need to know, such as cosplay and ships, etc. This book would be great for someone who is new and would like to know about fandoms, or doesn’t know what a fandom is. It’s a very interesting book also about how people make “edits” such as an AMV. Which stands for a type of video.  This book is truly for the fans. Some could also retrieve tips from this book. This is a book to teach you rather than entertain you. 

Go Into This One Knowing:  For the Fans!
