Fan Fiction

Recently I was able to attend a seminar about genres in fiction. It was an interesting session. One of the emerging genres that was discussed was called "fan fiction". This is the latest craze in fiction writing. Wikipedia defines fan fiction as : "a broadly defined term for fan labour regarding stories about characters or settings written by fans of the original work."  When I did a little digging I found that the library has had lots of fan fiction all along. You may have heard of the more popular titles that have really shed a light on fan fiction lately like "Pride and Prejudice and Zombies" and "Sense and Sensibility and Sea Monsters". But there are many other titles out there. Perhaps you have been a fan of 'fan fiction' all along? Here are a few for you to try. Enjoy!
