For Sale: Fic: Why Fanfiction Is Taking Over the World

What is fanfiction, and what is it not? Why does fanfiction matter? And what makes it so important to the future of literature?

Fic is a groundbreaking exploration of the history and culture of fan writing and what it means for the way we think about reading, writing, and authorship. It’s a story about literature, community, and technologyabout what stories are being told, who’s telling them, how, and why.

With provocative discussions from both professional and fan writers, on subjects from Star Trek to The X-Files and Buffy the Vampire Slayer to Harry Potter, Twilight, and beyond, Fic sheds light on the widely misunderstood world(s) of fanfictionnot only how fanfiction is transforming the literary landscape, but how it already has.

Fic features a foreword by Lev Grossman (author of The Magicians) and interviews with Jonathan Lethem, Doug Wright, Eurydice (Vivien Dean), and Katie Forsythe/wordstrings. Essays by:

A must-read for every newbie fan

A must-read for every newbie fan. As a newbie-ish Voltron fangirl/shipper (circa 2012) I wanted to find out if our fandom was like other fandoms, and Anne Jamison's book gave me a glimpse of various fandoms. I loved the book so much that after reading FIC, it was full of underlines, side notes and highlights. I even have a digital copy as well. I love @prof_anne's book so much, I wrote a review on our #KeithandAllura fan blog.

Accessible and Engaging -- Highly Recommended

It appears that many of the other reviewers came to this book already very well-versed in Fanfiction. I'm not, so I can't speak to how well this book might appeal to those who already know this subject inside-out. In any case, I found this book a lively introduction to fic, accessible without dumbing down the approach. Scholarly studies (even those of pop culture) can often leave the flavor of ashes in the reader's mouth, but not here: the embodied first-person book Introduction and section Intros are contagious and engaging in their scholarly enthusiasm. The selections themselves are diverse and I find many of them illuminating, Amber Benson's "Blurring the Lines" especially.
