I’m afraid the long delay in updates to the blog is because I’ve been so focused on completing my book on queerness in heavy metal.
Queerness In Heavy Metal: Metal Bent is now in print and available via Amazon.com. The book, published by Routledge, examines the many ways in which queer identities, performances, performers and fans exist inside heavy metal’s scenes and spaces. Included in the book is analysis of the data from the Queer Fans of Heavy Metal survey, for those that participated.
In the coming months I’ll post links to reviews here, as well as my long overdue reports from the Metal and Cultural Impact conference in Ohio, the Metal and Community conference in Puerto Rico. This summer I’ll post live from the international conference MHM in Helsinki, Finland.
Thanks for your patience!
