Lessons of Fandom

A few weeks ago, we stumbled upon hidden europe, an amazing publication devoted to the lost corners and secret terrains of Europe. We blogged about the magazine, ordered six back issues, delighted in the unexpected arrival of the current issue in the mail, and then blogged about it some more.

This sort of fan activity doesn’t usually happen in a vacuum. Naturally, we sent the editorial board effusive, gushing emails. Happily, they weren’t put off by our enthusiasm, and today the editors of hidden europe write the first in their fortnightly series of posts for the EuroCheapo Blog.

We’re pleased as punch.
