Fandoms are EVERYTHING to us; they're a space for fans to explore the fictional worlds they wish they could visit, and for them to fall even further in love with their favorite characters. And in today's interconnected world, fans have multitudes of opportunities to share their passion for their chosen characters and universes, whether classic or contemporary. Join Alisha Rai (Hate to Want You), Cecil Castellucci (Don’t Cosplay with my Heart), Alisa Kwitney (Cadaver & Queen), Joanna Shupe (The Four Hundred Series), and  Bob Proehl (A Hundred Thousand Worlds) as they discuss their favorite fan interactions, and tips on how you can join the fun with moderator Peter Brett (The Demon Cycle).
