The fanfic dilemma

Confession: I avoid fanfic like the devil avoids church. I'm generally not interested in non-canonical views of characters I'm attached to, which I think explains why I've never heard of the Marion Zimmer Bradley fanfic fandango. Jim C. Hines does a really great job of bringing all the facts together, and sheds some light on a tricky wicket.

  1. That's a big ole mess. I never knew fanfic was such a big thing...or maybe it's just gotten a lot bigger since the blogosphere exploded. It seems pointless for an author to take a stand against it since they can't do anything about it unless someone tries to sell it.

    The whole concept of fanfic seems pretty lame to me. Unless you are Sarah Rees Brennan doing fanfic of fanfic.
