One thought on “TDF 323 – Chez Amanda

  1. Great episode, thanks! So I often hear explanations and discussions of slashfic from enthusiastic fans who are NOT (like Jackie Kashian and I) one thousand years old. The term “slashfic” became common in the 1970s. There were plenty of mimeographed fanzines devoted to sci-fi and fantasy fandom–so many that there was a mail-order ‘zine that was just an index of OTHER zines. For brevity’s sake an issue that featured an erotic story about Kirk and Spock would be abbreviated K/S. A heterosexual story would be K-U for instance, for Kirk-Uhura. (You’ll occasionally see the word “dashfic” on the modern web, but it’s sadly become a linguistic casualty.) That attempt to save on page count is where we get the term “slashfic.” If you ever want an academic guest who can talk in an informed way about science fiction, feminism, fan culture, and pornography I’d suggest trying to get an interview with Constance Penley out of UC Santa Barbara.
