Fancestor Worship

Term coined by Walt Willis in the 1950s to describe the fannish tendency to adulate earlier generations of fans, particularly the BNFs of those generations, and their contributions to the microcosm.

This site is an exercise in fancestor worship. Of course, we all hope younger generations will venerate us in turn.
