Journal of Fandom Studies 2.1
 
The Journal of Fandom Studies offers scholars a dedicated publication that promotes current scholarship into the fields of fan and audience studies across a variety of media. In this free issue Lucy Bennett offers a brief history of fandom studies; Sam Ford argues that we need to continue to push the boundaries of present scholarship; Matt Hills provides an example of one way to push those boundaries by suggesting a focus on an alternative form of fanwork he terms 'fan fac'; And Francesca Coppa suggests that a return to first wave fan studies is particularly salient at a moment when the relationship between fans and 'creatives' is being fundamentally changed by new forms of engagement.
 
Crossings: Journal of Migration & Culture 5.1
 
This journal advances the study of the plethora of cultural texts on migration produced by an increasing number of cultural practitioners across the globe who tackle questions of culture in the context of migration. They do this in a variety of ways and through a variety of media. To name but a few relevant aspects of this juncture of migration and culture, questions of dislocation, travel, borders, diasporic identities, transnational contacts and cultures, cultural memory, the transmission of identity across generations, questions of hybridity and cultural difference, the material and oral histories of migration and the role of new technologies in bridging cultures and fostering cultural cross-pollination will all be relevant. 
 
Australasian Journal of Popular Culture 3.1
 
This journal is devoted to the scholarly understanding of everyday cultures. This volume focuses on crime fiction and the inter-connection of the local and the foreign. Articles include Toni Johnson-Wood's discussion of the role of Carter Brown on the radio; Amy Wigelsworth digs down into the Parisian origins of the French urban mystery novel but through the fractured lens of the palimpsest; Stewart King exploits another case of European self-alterity in his analysis of representations of the Franco regime in contemporary Spanish crime fiction and Rachel Franks investigates the evolution of women's struggle for independence as presented in the works of three Australian writers.
 
European Journal of American Culture 5.1
 
This journal is for scholars with a common involvement in the inter-disciplinary study of American culture. In this volume Edward Powers explores influences on the career of Andy Warhol, particularly looking at the influence of Gertrude Stein; David Allen's article looks at the appeal of the liminal space between the imaginary and the real created in all Disney parks; Adam Kendall investigates a controversial and historic religious oath, and the controversy that ensued when it resurfaced in America in the 1910s; Bennett Kravitz looks at 'Mark Twain's Satanic Existentialist,' in the iconic author's final novel Mysterious Stranger. 
 
Horror Studies 5.1
 
Horror Studies serves the international academic community in the humanities and specifically those scholars interested in horror. This issue includes Murray Leeder's exploration of Victorian science and spiritualism in The Legend of Hell House; Simchi Cohen's positioning of the 1954 vampire novel I Am Legendin the context of a zombie lineage, closing the widely discussed gap between the vampire and zombie; Matthew J. Raimondo's examination of a contemporary subgenre of horror cinema that appropriates the aesthetics of observational documentary and Shaun Kimber's case study article examining trangressive edge play within contemporary horror film.
 
Short Fiction in Theory & Practice 4.1
 
Short Fiction in Theory & Practice celebrates the current resurgence in short-story writing and research. In this volume, among other articles, Laura Dietz examines the role of literary magazines in the age of digital delivery; Joseph Frank examines nescience and realism in Richard Ford's Optimists; Leena Hannelle Eilittä's article argues that the female characters in C.N. Adichie's short story collection The Thing Around Your Neck go through mental developments similar to epiphanic experience as recently defined by Matthew G. McDonald and Glyn Hambrook's article presents a translation from the Spanish of 'Kábala práctica'/'Practical Kabbala'.
