Thanks for visiting our website for Myth, Fan Culture, and the Popular Appeal of Liminality in the Music of U2: A Love Story. A brief tour... The Gallery includes images used in the book, and we're especially happy to feature the fan-culture artwork of Kelly Eddington, The About page provides a summary of the book and author bios. Visit Themes to learn more about Myth, Love, and Liminality. We are grateful for the book's reception and critical response, which you can read about in Endorsements and Reviews. Indulge your fandom by visiting The "Mix Tape." Coming soon in the Classroom: We present a few ideas for using our book in college courses.

We want to talk with you! You don't have to buy the book to start a conversation about mythology in pop culture or fandom. See the Contact page for how to reach us. Want to meet in person?  Brian (coauthor) will have coffee at Un Mundo Cafe in Springfield, OH with anyone who wants to talk about the book (Email Brian directly: johnstb@miamioh.edu).  

You can get a copy of our book through the publisher (Lexington Books) here. Copies are also available through Amazon and Barnes & Noble.


We wrote this book hoping to connect with both a popular and an academic readership. We recognize that academic books are typically marked higher and we did everything we could for our part to keep this book at minimum cost. 

If pricing is a barrier to your reading of our book, then please reach out to Brian through his email address or LinkedIn profile.


Thank you!
