Riassunto: Autobiographical memoir of nostaliga collecting and organized fandom, spanning from the Dime Novels to Star Trek. Historical documentary of comic books, pulp magazines, science fiction, and related collecting fields.
Dal retro di copertina: Fandom : Confidential is Ron's personal story about taking up the quest of Don Quixote. It is a story of great idealism, dedication, naivete, and profound dissapointment. All of this might serve up some very important lessons for those contemplating a similar heroic role in life. It certainly tells the story of recurring themes of human interaction, and except for the lack of the appearanace of any angels, it might well have become a chapter of The Bible. For students of human behavior, I recommend this book. I warn you though; it could make you a conscientious objector.
Who's Who of American Comic Books
Fandom : Confidential is a behind-the-scenes peek of the heroes and villains of comics collecting. It's a fascinating study of the origins of the hobby, the people who populate it and the crimes of passion some of them committed.
