Fear of a Ghost Planet was launched in 2011 by Paul Arrand Rodgers, who originally blogged about popular culture at Careful with that Blog, Eugene. Fear of a Ghost Planet was envisioned as an expansion of that project and several others, a venue for the discussion of film, professional wrestling, comic books, and more—every corner of culture that is of interest to the author.
