Cult fiction is fiction which has attracted a large following of loyal fans and supporters. Cult fiction varies widely in terms of subject and even quality, with the literary value of some works of cult fiction being called into question by book critics who have managed to resist the fan mentality. Often, cult fiction breaks new ground in some way. Cult fiction may include material which is considered explicit for the time in which it is published, attracting prurient interest from readers who like things a little racy. It may also be controversial: some of the most esteemed works of cult fiction have been banned at some point or another. Authors may explore the human condition, write terrifying visions of dystopian societies, or simply tell a good story.
