Pornokitsch has been gleefully chatting about geek culture since 2008 - with a focus on books, movies, comics, games, television and music. Our mission is to treat genre seriously and examine it thoroughly, for better or for worse. And to have fun doing so.
It is a silly name, but there's a long story. An elaborate (and largely fictitious) rationalisation is available here.
Pornokitsch was a finalist for the 2011 BSFA Awards for Non-Fiction, the winner of the 2013 British Fantasy Awards for Non-Fiction and a finalist for the 2014 Hugo Award for Best Fanzine. The editors were selected to the Guardian's h.club100 (as "innovators and pioneers in the creative industries", which sounds very glamorous) in 2013.
Pornokitsch is edited by Anne C. Perry and Jared Shurin.
Our regular contributors are Jon Morgan, Molly Tanzer, Stark Holborn, Kuzhali Manickavel, Mahvesh Murad, Becky Chambers, Rebecca Levene and Jesse Bullington.
You can also find us on Facebook.
