[Book Review] The Fan Fiction Studies Reader

The Fan Fiction Studies Reader / Karen Hellekson and Kristina Busse (eds.)

The Fan Fiction Studies Reader is a scholarly look at the who, what, and why's of fan-fiction.  The authors look at reasons fans create these works, be it reflections of gender politics, personal expression, or literary explorations.  Even beyond that the authors look at the development and growth of fan fiction, and the relationships between the fans, the shows, and the producers.  The authors touch on different areas of fandom, but most commonly discuss the body of work of Kirk/Spock fan fiction.

An interesting read, both for those curious about fan fiction and those part of fan fiction communities.
