In the course of my research, I've come across a wide variety of articles, books, journals, and blog entries about fandom, fan culture, and identity. The list here is by no means a complete and exhaustive list of all things related to fan studies. Instead, it's a list of works that I feel are the most relevant for my research. Some of the works, like Hellekson and Busse's Fan Fiction and Fan Communities in the Age of the Internet, are representative of larger areas of fan studies. Studies on anime and fan fiction are both very numerous, and while I find them tangentially relevant, I have not included all of their works in this bibliography (though expect to see posts on those topics at some later point).

Over the next couple weeks, I'll be reading through most of these works and providing reviews and comments on the ones that I find particularly useful. Some works will get cut from the list if they are not particularly helpful to my current research needs. Others will be added as I stumble upon them. For now, though, this list is a starting point as a piece my way through a review of the literature on fandom and fan studies.
