Now that the Silo series by Hugh Howey is ending, he’s opening it up to fanfic on Kindle Worlds. This is even more interesting as he cultivated his audience online.
I’ve begun speculating, as have my fellow MuseHackers, on just where fanfic is going to go now that Amazon is monetizing it. This of course gets even more intereting when you ask about social pressure to “fanficify” your work, or ways alternate works could be made. I mean if you think about it one book could been written and spawn FAR more fanfic than its original contents.
