I am  fairly sure that all talk of any particular attempts at writing
fan-based  books is not permitted on this list.

I didn't keep the original digest, but wasn't she talking about one of the three
licensed/approved novels that were professionally published but no  longer
in print?
I'm fairly sure that while they were written by fans, discussion of them is
allowed because they were approved for publication by TPTB.

Here's what happened.  One of our Forkni-ler had written and was selling
copies of Forever Knight novel. Not only was it written so that it read like
professional work, it was also physically up to professional standards.
Unfortunately, Sony got wind of the book, and threatened the author with a
lawsuit unless the book was withdrawn.

At the time I thought they might have someone monitoring the list, since it
wasn't all that long after the show went off the air, and they had licensed
the three novels published by Berkeley. The author told me later that she
knew that wasn't how Sony found out.

So, as long as nobody's selling fanfic and advertising it on FK, I think
we're ok.  I hope so.

The topic isn't forbidden, although I see why it might have seemed so,  Just
let's be careful. If we got kicked off PSU now, there are places like Google
and Yahoo where we could go, but Don and I much prefer PSU. :)

FK fanfic got me into reading books back in 1996.  Since I started  reading
all the fic on fkfanfic.com, {I've read everyone of them} I've become
addicted to reading.  This is a person who spent many an afternoon in the
principle's office because I wouldn't read aloud for the teacher.

I've  enjoyed any fandom more than I did/do the FK fandom, even if I was
only a  lurker through much of it. So, please continue! :-)

I haven't done too  many cons or other in-person fan activities, but if FK
peeps do plan a reunion  I will definitely try to be there!
