Castle Loves Fandom: Celebrating the Detective Show’s Quips, Homages, and Meta-Salutes
LitCrit Press. Sept 2015. ISBN: 978-0692544266
ABC’s Castle, a show like no other, celebrates every aspect of fandom. Of course, Nathan Fillion has already rocked the fannish community with his many beloved roles. As a writer-hero, he eagerly plunges into hidden communities, from vampire and steampunk clubs to beauty pageants and dog shows. He wears a space suit, zombie makeup, laser tag gear, and a tux. His fannish immersion stretches even to the point of believing in psychics, aliens, ninjas, mummies, and ghosts. This book celebrates the pure fandom present in Castle – the Firefly easter eggs, pop culture references, and film homages – all that makes the show a true act of love.
