Merchandise, fandom and authenticity

Subject: Merchandise, fandom and authenticity
by wellinghall on 2012/10/6 1:38:06

"This week has seen a flood of Hobbit merchandise hit the stores — both online and off. So much so, that the cynical might think that’s all there is to Tolkien fandom these days.

That’s why, this weekend (Saturday October 6 at 6pm New York time), Hall of Fire will be asking the question: has merchandise become the default outlet for fan enthusiasm?"
