The Last Fanatics: How the Genre Wars Killed Wonder (Volume One)

The Machine's Crossroads

ByJD CowanJeffro Johnson

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Once upon a time, there was a tradition of storytelling that went back into the Gothic romances all the way through the fairy tales into the classics. It was a world without genre boundaries, checked boxes, and corporate writing workshops. This tradition created all the things you grew up with, the stories and ideas you hold dear, and the beating heart of adventure that has sustained us since the beginning of recorded history. And then it was destroyed. Learn how a gaggle of Fanatics poisoned the well of discourse and imagination by turning storytelling into mechanical formulas with rules and boundaries that never existed before. Who gave them this power, and how much of their garbage still taints discourse and the industry today? In The Last Fanatics, all will be laid bare. It is time for the truth to be shouted out loud! *Contains the collected and edited series of Fandom essays from Wasteland & Sky* "Volume One" Contents: Part I ~ Fandom: An Illustrative History Part II ~ A Revolution of Pulp
