AWW22 QAnon and On: A Short and Shocking History of Internet Conspiracy Cults - Van Badham Adelaide Writers' Week

    • Books

Chaired by Sharon Davis.

In this compelling account of contemporary conspiracies, the internet’s dark corners, and those who inhabit both, Van Badham dives deep into the world of Gamergate, Pizzagate, QAnon and more. With a new capacity to cross-pollinate with each other and online, the wild nature of the tales from this new brand of conspiracist may sound funny – Lizard People anyone? – but they leave a trail of devastation in their wake. QAnon and On lays it all bare.
