What is a fanlisting?

First, you may be wondering what is a fanlisting. According to http://www.thefanlistings.org/,"a fanlisting is simply an online listing of fans of a subject, such as a TV show, actor, or musician, that is created by an individual and open for fans from around the world to join. There are no costs, and the only requirements to join a fanlisting are your name and country. Fanlistings do not have to be large sites (although some are) - they are just a place where you can have your name listed along with other fans of the same subject. TheFanlistings.org is the original (but not official) web directory for fanlistings, dedicated to uniting the fans."

Why Kalon Kakon?

Kalon Kakon is an ancient Greek term for "beautiful evil." It refers to such things as Pandora, the first woman who was created by Zeus to punish mankind for obtaining the godly wonder of fire. She was a creature that was irrestible, but along with her came deathly old age. Greeks believed that women were vile and deceitful, and thus she was an evil plague. I thought this term described themes in the book. I like how the term can be twisted to have a feminist meaning, instead of a misogynist meaning.
