Now, with the growth of the internet, advertising dollars are quickly and thinly spread. It is up to the […]

More on Fan Fiction

I know we’ve talked about this before. But the phenomenon fascinates me. Fan fiction—it’s everywhere. For every TV show, book series or movie ever scripted, there seems to be a fan, or many, many fans, who want to take the elements and characters of that world and make it their own.  Harry Potter, The Heralds […]
