Fandom and the comic operas of Gilbert and Sullivan go back a long way. Isaac Asimov was an avid Savoyard (G&S fan), as have been many other SF/F writers. The operas themselves exemplify — and parody — the tropes of fantasy (Iolanthe), medievalism (Patience), and Gothic horror (Ruddigore, The Sorcerer). Boskone also has special connections with G&S. Why are these Victorian masterpieces still so popular in (and out of) fannish culture?
