Author has written 2 stories for Harry Potter.Dear readers,
I have not forgotten you, but I just wanted to inform you as to my whereabouts (and the whereabouts of my forthcoming chapter). I am just finishing up a sejour in the lovely country of France, and while I expected to be able to finish up the chapter, I discovered that I was doing other things (like swimming, tanning, eating, etc). Thus, I haven't forgotten you, but I've just been otherwise occupied. Chapter 3 will be completed as soon as I can rock it (I've also got four interviews next week, but that's another story).
As a staunch supporter that fanfiction is legally protectable under the interpretation of the First Amendment, in particular the Fair Use Doctrine, may I suggest several published works that should be purchased or at least read to support our freedom to create transformative works, parodies, et cetera:
"The Wind Done Gone: The Unauthorized Parody of Gone With The Wind," by Alice Randall. This parody of the famous Margaret Mitchell novel caused waves of protest in 1985 from the holders of the Mitchell estate. The copyright of "Gone With The Wind" had not yet expired, yet Randall held to her convictions that this book was protected under the First Amendment as an expression of parody. Though she lost in the first case, she won in appeals, and now you can find this gem at any large bookstore.
"The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen," a graphic novel series by Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill. While the characters portrayed in this over-the-top series fall unquestionably into the realm of fair use, these works are undoubtably fanfiction and are commendable as such. Readers may be surprised to find that some of the literary foibles found in the movie of the same title are also present in the graphic novel, namely the Hulk-like persona of Mr. Edward Hyde. Yet there is much attention to literary detail, and if you're a fan of early 20th century works you'll find many bagatelles that are satisfying (for example, the fact that Captain Nemo is Indian, which is how Verne portrayed him in his books).
Any other suggestions? Please feel free to email me.
