An author immerses herself in the frenzied fandom of Twilight, the young-adult vampire romance series that has captivated women of all ages Twilight, Stephenie Meyer’s young-adult vampire romance series, has captivated women of all ages, from teenagers who swoon over the film adaptations to college-educated women who devour the novels as a guilty pleasure. All told, over 110 million copies of the books have been sold worldwide, with translations into 37 languages, and the movies are some of the highest-grossing of all time. Twilight is a bona fide cultural phenomenon that has inspired a vast and unimaginably fertile fan subculture—the “fanpire,” as the members describe it. Just what is it about Twilight that has enchanted so many women? Tanya Erzen—herself no stranger to the allure of the series—sets out to explore the irresistible pull of Twilight by immersing herself in the vibrant and diverse world of “Twi-hards,” from Edward-addition groups and “Twi-rock” music to Cullenism, a religion based on the values of Edward’s family of vegetarian vampires. Erzen interviews hundreds of fans online and in person, attends thousand-strong conventions, and watches the film premiere of New Moon with Twilight moms in Utah. Along the way, she joins a tour bus on a pilgrimage to Twilight-inspired sites, struggles through a Bella self-defense class, and surveys the sub-universe of Twilight fan-fiction (including E. L. James’s enormously popular “Master of the Universe” story, the basis for her erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey). Erzen also takes a deeper look at the appeal of traditional gender roles in a postfeminist era saturated with narratives of girl power. If Twilight’s fantasies of romance and power reflect the fears, insecurities, and longings of the women who love it, the fanpire itself, Erzen shows, offers a space for meaningful bonding, mutual understanding, and friendship. Part journalistic investigation and part cultural analysis, Fanpire will appeal to obsessed fans, Twilight haters, and bemused onlookers alike. From the Hardcover edition.

"From Barbie dolls to blockbuster films, the Twilight saga has bedazzled millions of fans and generated billions in revenue. Tanya Erzen introduces us to the global fanpire- members of Edward-addiction groups, twi-rock musicians and adherents of vampire religion- to explain how Twilight has become a massive cultural phenomenon, and why women and girls derive such pleasure from Twilight's fantasies of romance and power. In the supernatural world of Twilight's vampires and werewolves, the fears, insecurities and longings of many girls and women about sex and relationships are confronted head-on. Like the characters in the books, fans imagine that they can have it all: empowerment, respect, and true love, fantasies that are reinforced by target marketing. At the same time, the solitary reader is now part of a far-flung fanpire of like-minded devotees, where she fashions new identities, and encounters belonging and enchantment in everyday life"--

When Stephenie Meyer’s first novel, Twilight, was published in 2005, it received an astounding reception, selling millions of copies. The three sequels that followed—New Moon, Eclipse, and Breaking Dawn—became international bestsellers as well.

In The Twilight Saga: Exploring the Global Phenomenon, Claudia Bucciferro has assembled a collection of essays that examine the series from a variety of perspectives. The essays in this volume consider both the books and the movies, emphasizing the relationship between the texts, the audience, the entertainment industry, and other aspects of the multimillion-dollar franchise. Making sense of how the popular franchise fits within larger contexts, this collection addresses Twilight from an interdisciplinary framework, including insights from history, philosophy, literature, sociology, fan studies, intercultural communication, film studies, and more.

This book explores the history of the paranormal romance genre; from its origins in the revisionist horror fiction of the 1970s, via its emergence as a minor sub-genre of romantic fiction in the early 1990s, to its contemporary expansion in recent years into an often-controversial genre of mainstream fiction. Tracing the genre from its roots in older Gothic fiction written by and for women, it explores the interconnected histories of Gothic and romantic fiction, from Ann Radcliffe and Jane Austen in the eighteenth century to Buffy, Twilight, True Blood and The Vampire Diaries in the present day. In doing so, it investigates the extent to which the post-Twilight paranormal romance really does represent a break from older traditions of Gothic fiction – and just what it is about the genre that has made it so extraordinarily divisive, captivating millions of readers whilst simultaneously infuriating and repelling so many others.

Die Twilight-Reihe von Stephenie Meier war einer der Überraschungserfolge in der Jugendliteratur der letzten Jahre. Die Liebesgeschichte um die menschliche Bella Swan und den "vegetarischen" Blutsauger Edward Cullen haben einen neuen Boom des Vampirthemas ausgelöst, der auch nach dem Erscheinen des vierten und letzten Buches durch die sukzessive Verfilmung der Romane weiterhin lebendig gehalten wird. Die Romane selbst halten sich mit Millionenauflagen stabil an der Spitze der Belletristik-Bestsellerlisten, während die Verfilmung des ersten Teils, Twilight - Bis(s) zum Morgengrauen, allein in Deutschland 2,4 Millionen Zuschauer in die Kinos gelockt hat; Teil zwei, New Moon - Bis(s) zur Mittagsstunde, der im November anlief, hatte in den USA den erfolgreichsten Filmstart aller Zeiten. Die dritte Verfilmung - Eclipse - Bis(s) zum Abendrot - läuft in Deutschland voraussichtlich im Juli 2010 an. Die Ewigkeit ist eine ziemlich lange Zeit ... Zwar scheinen die Vampire in Twilight wie äußerst attraktive Teenager und Mitdreißiger der Gegenwart, tatsächlich führen sie ihr untotes Dasein jedoch teilweise schon seit Jahrhunderten. Dieses Buch ist das erste, das einen Einblick in die historischen Hintergründe der Figuren bietet und dabei u.a. erklärt, wie es für Edward gewesen sein muss, als er sich freiwillig für den Ersten Weltkrieg meldete, sein Leben dann jedoch durch die Spanische Grippe einbüßte. Von Carlisles Ursprüngen im Puritanischen England über Jaspers Leben als Konföderierter im Amerikanischen Bürgerkrieg bis hin zur Stammesgeschichte der Quileute-Indianer verbindet das Buch Realität und Fiktion. Das ideale Buch für alle Fans der Bis(s)-Reihe, die mehr über die beliebten Charaktere erfahren wollen.

Hier erfahren Sie, wieso Stephenie Meyers Liebesgeschichte so viele Menschen fasziniert und warum es sich dabei um so viel mehr als oberflächliche Jugendliteratur handelt: - Wieso fühlen sich Menschen von Vampiren magisch angezogen? - Sollte Edward seine Fähigkeit zum Gedankenlesen einsetzen? - Ist Edward ein romantischer Held oder einfach nur ein Stalker? - Was sagt der Kampf der "vegetarischen" Cullen-Familien gegen ihren Durst nach menschlichem Blut über den freien Willen aus? - Wird das ewige Leben nicht sogar an der Seite einer geliebten Person irgendwann langweilig?
