"We sold our souls to The Powers That Be to get the book written, and only found our way back to telling the real story when they balked at just what that real story was. We were kicked off filming locations long before we were invited back for set visits and chats with Jensen and Jared in their trailers. There’s a lot in Fangasm that’s so personal that it’s hard to read even now"

July's guest post is with Fangasm's Lynn Zubernis & Katherine Larsen. They discuss the surprises & difficulties of their academic projects, what they learned about fandom through Supernatural, and what's next on their agendas: http://goo.gl/aV95mm
