From thecaelum's lj entry:
I am delighted to announce that my two community projects are ready for new members. I've been working on them for a few weeks now, and they are all shiny and new and ready to go!
canon_sidekicks - Discussion, reviews, and recommendations for tie-in novels. This is the place to go if you'd like to find out what tie-in novels are available for your fandom, and what other fans thought of them. The summary data for a few fandoms are still pending, but those will all be updated by September 9th. If you'd like to contribute, see this post for more information. Both lurkers and active members are welcome!
Sampling of fandoms to be represented:
Alias, Angel, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, DC Comics, Doctor Who, Firefly, Gilmore Girls, Queer As Folk (US), Rome, Serenity, Smallville, Star Trek, Star Wars, Stargate: Atlantis, and Stargate: SG-1.
social_meta - Discussions about social structures, rules, and behaviors in fandom. This one will be interesting, and I have very high hopes for it. I think people should question these things far more often than they actually do, and if you feel the same way, then this is the community for you. As with the above community, both lurkers and active members are welcome.
Drop by, take a look, and join if either of them interests you! Also, feel free to pimp them. I'm not entirely sure how and where to promote them, as I am not a fan of promoting a community in someone else's community if said community is not geared toward promotion. Any ideas? Tell me about them in comments. I'd appreciate that.
Anyway. Go, check out, amuse yourself. I'm *really* fond of the first community especially--a fairly reliable fan source of tie-in novel recs and discussion would be excellent.
