A subculture which has grown up around the appreciation and examiniation of science fiction and fantasy. Being very large, it is difficult to generalize about fandom beyond this basic definition, but that has not stopped members of fandom nor its detractors (who are sometimes one and the same) from doing so.

See FIAWOL, FIJAGH, and fans are slan, they're just not very good at it.

Fans gather at science fiction/fantasy conventions.
