FanDominion is the brainchild of David Speakman, a veteran journalist and long-time fan of all forms of speculative fiction (science fiction, fantasy and dark fantasy/supernatural horror).
After having worked in the mainstream press for the better part of two decades, Speakman became frustrated with dismissive attitude that non-fans or obviously biased anti-fandom journalists and reviewers took toward speculative fiction works of art, film, television and print.
Additionally, most “fan” sites seemed to be very narrowly focused upon one or two topics; then openly gushed in a very biased and forgiving manner; refusing to take a critical eye when discussing their topic of choice.
The intention of this site is to provide high-quality and reliable news and reviews written by fans for fans. FanDominion articles – short and long – strive to achieve the following goals:
- To be written with a fan’s point of view and not be dismissive of science fiction/fantasy/horror fandom.
- To be written or presented in a professional manner or at least in a manner that is not insulting to the intelligence of the audience.
- To be verifiable and trustworthy.
- To not be afraid of criticising the flaws of a SF/F/H work in a well-reasoned and truthful manner.
