Abstract:

"From the moment Stephenie Meyer published Twilight in 2005, the series has captivated readers. Through three subsequent novels and the blockbuster movie series, the Twilight Saga quickly became more than just a hit series ... Contributors address such topics as the role of mythology in the appeal of the series; the distinct fan groups drawn in by the books and films; the vast world of Twilight fan fiction (including a discussion of Fifty Shades of Grey, the blockbuster novel that began as Twilight fan fiction); the role of gender in Twilight{u2019}s global acceptance; and much more."--Provided by publisher.
