Fanfic article

Author Lev Grossman wrote an article on fanfiction for Time Magazine, notable largely because he asked for the input of fandom, and it shows -- it's one of the better entries to the genre, despite a few weird things like an implication that hurt/comfort is by necessity AU, and a little too much attention paid to fic-hating authors of the "but the characters are my children!!!" school. I'm also amused by his comparison of fanfic to punk music -- clearly, he didn't attend the right FogCon panels. But overall, it's worth a look.

Yeah, I've ghost-written a few articles for industry mags (lol, the glamorous world of PR) and they hack-and-slash quote a bit. :)
