By the way, anyone know anything about Mercedes Lackey's attitude to fanfic? Someone left a review a while back on that crossover I did with Faith in Valdemar, saying she's very hot on cracking down. Anyone know for certain?

I feel evil

There is something about it in a thread on the TtH forums. Can't remember which thread, but it is there.

*blinks* Stupid meme. Why I am I always in the same sentance as handcuffs?

Anyway - I told ya all I know about "Misty" and her no fanfic stance. I know she doesn't like fanfic outside her approved "Queen's Own" group but...I have never heard of her actually doing anything. Does FF.net still allow fanfics based on her work? Authors normally go after the big sites first, asking them to ban fic based on their work.

I'm pretty sure ff.net don't allow Mercedes' related ff for fear of being sued.

I am a marvellous cuddler, as a matter of fact.

*blinkblink* No comment on that meme. None.

As far as Mercedes Lackey goes, I think she's eased up on it...can't quote chapter and verse or anything, but I've been under the impression that she's adopted a Pratchett/Bujoldesque "just don't let me SEE it or talk about it where I can hear" stance. Benign neglect is such a lovely thing. :-) Ff.net is usually pretty prompt about taking things down when/if the author protests (Raymond Feist, I believe, threw a serious hissyfit), and as long as the category's been up, I can't believe she doesn't know about it. So I'd say you're reasonably safe.

As long as she doesn't go into another "Fans are EEEVIL!" phase, at least.

The alt.books.m-lackey newsgroup has a bit of info in its FAQ, reproduced from a message from her agent posted about 10 years ago (but seems to be still current). After an explanation of why she doesn't like it, it ends with "If you want to write Fanfic, please send mail to the Queen's Own or HighFlight addresses above, and request a release form. Don't go doing something that you're going to wind up regretting, later."

I presume the High Flight address cited is the one from elsewhere in the FAQ:

High Flight
P.O. Box 8309
Tulsa, OK 74101-8309

And the FAQ is archived on the web at http://home.earthlink.net/~m_thomas3/abml/faq2.txt
