Holiday Shopping Supernatural Style!

The holiday season is here! If you have a Supernatural fan on your list (or you’re making a wish list for yourself because really, you deserve it!), then one of our Supernatural books just might be the perfect gift this holiday season! From Family Don’t End With Blood to Supernatural Psychology, we have several books to choose from, plus other FDEWB merchandise such as t-shirts, phone cases, tote bags and more.

Many of the books are now at special holiday sale prices. All the information you need – plus links to take you right to ordering – below!

 

Family Don’t End With Blood – This is the only book actually written by the Supernatural actors. Jared, Jensen, Misha, Kim, Briana, Ruth, Rachel, Mark, Matt, Rob, Osric, Jim and Gil (plus a dozen Supernatural fans) all share their stories of how being on Supernatural and part of the SPNFamily has changed their lives.

We’re so grateful to the actors for their courage and candor in sharing such personal stories of how they’ve grappled with depression, anxiety, and self doubt and found the strength to take risks and keep fighting thanks to the support of the fandom – and to the fans for sharing their stories of how the actors and fellow fans inspired them to do the same.

We love hearing that reading this book has inspired others to keep fighting too – and every purchase benefits Random Acts and Attitudes in Reverse to help make a difference! Click Here to Order!

Did you know there’s also FDEWB merch? If you love the book or love the cover art, we have a shop on Society6 with a variety of products, including t-shirts, totes, mugs and more featuring the beautiful cover design by talented artist Cris Griffin.

Supernatural Psychology – If you’ve ever tried to figure out why Supernatural is the best show ever, then this is the book for you. Written by a variety of psychologists who are also fans of the show, this book explores how the Winchesters, Castiel and many other characters deal with the challenges thrown their way, and what drives these characters to always keep fighting. The book also includes a moving introduction by Mark Pellegrino (Lucifer).

Happy Holidays and a Special Offer from Fangasm!

We wanted to take a minute to thank everyone who follows us here on our blog, on Facebook or on Twitter – we love hearing your thoughts on Supernatural and fans, and are honored to share this awesome fandom with each and every one of you. If you’re looking for something to put on your wish list this holiday season, we’ve got a 20% discount for you if you buy our first book on Supernatural and its fans, Fandom At The Crossroads, from the publisher! Order online at c-s-p.org using the login: fandom, and the password: fandom20%.

Crossroads is also available in paperback at amazon.com here.

Here’s what television critic Maureen Ryan had to say about Crossroads: “A witty, thoughtful and intelligent guide to the nature of fandom and the endless varieties of the fan experience. As Dean Winchester would say, ‘They get it’.”

Crossroads isn’t all our thoughts though. Jared, Jensen, Misha, Jim, Richard, Gabe, Matt, Todd, Eric Kripke, Sera Gamble and others contributed their (surprisingly candid) insights about the show, the fans and the experience of being fanned. We also confess to including some very pretty pictures of the boys. (You’d be shocked if we didn’t, right?)

For those of you who are academically inclined (or just interested in the phenomenon of fandom), our edited collection, Fan Culture: Theory/Practice, is also available at c-s-p.org or at amazon.com here.

And be on the lookout for the first issue of the Journal of Fandom Studies. It’s a special issue on Forrest J Ackerman, Famous Monsters of Filmland, and its fans and includes an essay by Henry Jenkins in which he reminisces about some of his own childhood fandoms. You can download articles from the first issue here.

Whatever and whenever you celebrate, happy holidays!
