Incels and Other Myths

A mother and son’s epic journey into the online realms of gender, power, and mythology

Incels and Other Myths follows a mother and son’s epic journey into the online realms of gender, power, and mythology. Elaine, a professor of Women in Mythology, grows concerned when son Avery spends much of his time playing the online adventure game Oracle. Hoping to save him from spiraling deep into the notorious, misogynistic community of the “incels,” Elaine discovers an addiction of her own. But now, can Avery save her?
