Incels and Other Myths follows a mother and son’s epic journey into the online realms of gender, power, and mythology. Elaine, a teacher of Women in Mythology, grows concerned when son Avery spends much of his time playing the online adventure game, Oracle, involving himself in the notorious, misogynistic “incel” community. Through their descent into fraught online territory, Avery and Elaine discover unexpected and intoxicating new realities that shape how they see their own worlds.
