The microcosm made up of people who are fans of a fiction genre, or of a subgenre, who have their own clubs, conventions and amateur magazines (fanzines), dating back (in some cases) to the early 1930s. Some of these are overlapping. Star Trek fandom, for example, started in science fiction fandom and eventually became a separate fandom on its own. Comics fandom and even rock (music) fandom also started there before becoming separate entities.
Harry published one of the best fanzines in fandom back in the 1930s.

Plural Term of the word Fandom, refering to a community
or group of fans of a television show, movie, book or other media. Most commonly used to describe fan produced media groups, such as fanfiction
Fans usually use the term in relation to belonging to a fan group, as an territorial identifier from one community to the next, ie: "I've come across the term whumping in the SGA fandom, but we don't use that term often in the Buffy fandom."
I wrote this fic for the Buffy Fandom: This is a Smallville Fandom Vid: The buffy and HP fandoms are more popular then others.
