Fanfiction | Inis 25

Lynn O’Sullivan has an article in the new edition of Inis, Children’s Books Ireland’s magazine, giving an overview of fanfiction. The piece begins at the most basic level and reviews the history of fan based fiction - did you know that in the 17th century fans of Cervantes wrote their own sequels to Don Quixote?

There were very few gaps in the piece but one name, I was surprised to find, was omitted, Francisca Solar. The worlds most famous fanfic author - who, after writing her own sequel to Harry Potter, was offered a three book deal with Random House.

I’m still stuck in the middle of the Autumn issue of Inis (filled with news, events and reviews - including a great feature on The Spiderwick Chronicles by Ruth Coleman) Available in good bookshops or through CBI.
