Amok Time - Fanlore
Leonard Nimoy described it as: "An excellent script. Very poetic, dramatic, intense -- and important for Spock and for the Vulcans, because it was the first time we were going to go to Vulcan and see other Vulcans. I felt it immediately…. And there was that wonderful payoff where I believed I had killed Kirk. Great moment." [1]

Leonard Nimoy said that after "Amok Time" had been aired for the first time, his fan mail jumped from 400 to 10,000 letters a week. [2]

Brother Of 'My Immortal' Author Says She Lied About Everything
"Irked" that his identity was used to help hype the memoir, her brother continued his account, deconstructing Christo's much-publicized tragic tale:

It's a very exaggerated sob story with kernels of truth here and there (e.g., we were separated as children but largely of her choice, neither of us was in foster care, and she's rejected my attempts to reconnect with her since) to better sell the memoir — why else coincide it with the revelation that you're the legendarily worst fanfic author ever?

K-pop, Indonesian fandom, and social media | Jung | Transformative Works and Cultures
Abstract: "Around the world, pop consumers are increasingly accessing popular products through social media. Online fan groups of Korean popular music (K-pop) in Asia have dynamically and transculturally circulated their product through social media such as Facebook and Twitter. In October 2010, Super Junior, a K-pop idol boy band, was ranked as the number one worldwide trending topic on Twitter—ranking even higher than a sensational news story about trapped Chilean miners. Regional fans in Indonesia in particular have been identified as the source of a spike in tweets on this topic. Such a phenomenon illustrates how social media–empowered online fandom enhances cultural flow and affects transcultural pop circulation dynamics. I examine these dynamics by means of the specific case study of K-pop fandom in Indonesia. By focusing on three specific aspects of new media circulation of K-pop in Indonesia—performing immediate transculturations, embodying K-pop, and building intimacies—I contextualize transnationally focused, newly emerging, and social media–deployed cultural circulation driven by online fan practices."
