Commerce, Cosplay and Conflict on the Expo Floor
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Just in time for Comic-Con comes the investigative romp through the conventions industry! With looming layoffs and a tanking economy, lapsed-fanboy Bob Calhoun sets out on a quest through concrete convention centers for the nerdy enthusiasm he has lost. However, in "Shattering Conventions," what starts out as a goofy pop culture experiment quickly becomes a twisted political odyssey where Calhoun witnesses the growing conflict between sci-fi nerds and rightwing extremists for the very soul of a nation. And the more expos that Calhoun attends, the more he realizes that all of this coming together might be tearing us apart.
