Format: Hardcover
Very solid academic work here! Cusack investigates the fuzzy boundaries between religion and fiction, making a strong case for treating emerging and invented religions as legitimate, creative expressions of religious identity. Strongly recommended for those interested in religion in America, religion and modernity, and the social dimensions of genres.

(I use it in an upper level undergraduate course--it's challenging, but they were able to handle it.)

I wanted to review this book but at $69 I can only assume it is a vanity publication. By my calculations a 42% reduction in the price will increase sales by 64%. At $2.70 per page, I hope there is some gold in there somewhere. I gave it 2 stars only because of the price and I haven't actually read it. I will wait to purchase it until there is a used version available or the price drops considerably.

Format: Hardcover
The author of this book seems to assume that Discordianism is a fictional religion. That implies illegitimacy and belittles those of us who practice it. I was insulted and disgusted.
