Colin McEnroe Show: Fan Fiction Keeps 'Harry Potter' Alive; Sheds Light On Spock's Evening Wear
A discussion on the world of fandom with Lev Grossman and the OTW.
"Lay down some cover fire for me," I told Commander Troi, Buffy and Bill Curry. "I have to get back to Earth and do a show about fan fiction."
The vampire slayer and the busty Betazoid Starfleet counselor crouched behind the body of the slain Chewbacca while Curry scrambled to fetch the phasers and I activated the escape pod, setting the controls for the Dankosky Building on planet Earth in the Delta Quadrant. I hit warp speed and was gone in a flash.
Back on Tatooine, as the charging Banthas overwhelmed the rebel position, Curry turned to Buffy and Deanna and said, "If we're going to die anyway, there's something I'd like to do."
Hey, wait a sec. This is MY fan fiction. And isn't the whole point of fan fic to allow the uncredentialed author to expand his favorite imaginary world and make exciting new things happen?
