We are proud to present the second issue of Fafnir – Nordic Journal of Science Fiction and Fantasy Research in the year 2015! The issue can be read at http://journal.finfar.org.
Interesting texts and topics are abundant in the newest issue. The articles examine female protagonists in self-insertion fan fiction texts based on Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight novels and concentrate on the central role of water in the poetics of Rikki Ducornet’s novel The Fountains of Neptune.
We are also proud to present the first lectio praecursoria in the history of Fafnir, one investigating the so called human question in science fiction television. The issue also contains a report of the 36th International Conference on the Fantastic in the Arts and two literary reviews in two Nordic languages.
Please do remember that Fafnir welcomes submissions of research articles, short overviews, academic book reviews, essays, opinion pieces and the like. More detailed information on the journal and the upcoming issues is available at journal.finfar.org.
The next issue is scheduled for September 2015. In the meantime, Fafnir wishes our readers a warm and relaxing summer!
