Re: [mythsoc] Copyright Loremasters?
- Such as Neil Gaiman's "The Problem of Susan"? Though that would be an example of a literary response, not fanfic.My position is similar to Jason's, but not quite the same: on the whole I don't think much of using someone else's characters rather than your own (hence my lack of interest in Maguire's OZ books, or the recent Peter Pans). But there are exceptions, when someone gets ahold of what sounds like a great idea, when I'll give them a try. Mostly I'm disappointed, but the occasional gems are worth the effort, like Verlyn Flieger's "Green Hill Country".So far the closest I've seen to a successful use of an Inkling in fiction is Velarde's CONVERSATIONS W. C.S. LEWIS, wh. is more like a novelized dialogue than 'fiction'.And thanks, David, for the chart. V. useful!--John R.On May 5, 2011, at 7:32 AM, marc drayer wrote:
- Yes, as David says, it's a great story. The closing sentence is particularly memorable -- but there's no way to share it with anyone without spoiling the story. It's not that often I call something a masterpiece, but "The Ugly Chickens" is one.--John R.On May 9, 2011, at 8:23 AM, Mem Morman wrote:
