Can open, worms everywhere

News of the self-publishing fanfic writer Lori Jareo has spread. Behold, the power of the internet:

John Scalzi: The 2006 Stupidest FanFic Writer Award Gets Retired Early. Don’t miss this one.

Lee Goldberg: No HOPE for this Fanficcer. Goldberg is rather infamous for being outspoken against fanfic, but this is one case where both sides can agree.

And… you knew it was coming…
Fandom Wank: The wank is strong in this one.

More to come? I’d bet on it.

Be you not so stupid

Selling your fanfic on Amazon.com? Bad idea.

The above item was linked on the VIP thread on starwars.com, and a google searched turned up thenaberriegirls.com and this defense. Apocryphal’s a nice word, but so is copyright; Somebody’s getting a letter (at least!) from LFL’s lawyers.

And let it be noted, fandom has never reacted very well to this sort of thing either… You don’t take money for fanfic, folks. Period.
