Faan Fiction 1930-2020: an exploration (Paperback)
In this combined critique and anthology, Rob Hansen discusses the phenomenon of fan fiction (in the old fanzine sense of fiction about members of the science fiction fan community rather than actors in media productions), with a particular focus on the UK. His commentary is interspersed with many examples from such diverse fan writers as John Berry, C.S. Youd (John Christopher), Leroy Kettle, David Langford, Mark Plummer, Bob Shaw, Ian Sorensen, James White, Walt Willis - and Rob Hansen himself, including previously unpublished work. There are several surprises. Approximately 61,000 words.
