Fangel vs. Spuffy

Has anyone read these?

I've been jonesin' to read some scholarly work written about fanfiction, and came across "The Democratic Genre: Fanfiction in a Literary Context" by Sheenagh Pugh and "Fanfiction and Fan Communities in the Age of the Internet" by Karen Hellekson on Amazon. Before going ahead and purchasing these babies, has anyone read them or heard positive or negative reviews about either of these books? If they're stinkers, I'll save the $20 it'll cost to order them.
