George R.R. Martin: Kritik am heutigen Verständnis des Begriffes "Fan fiction"

Über meinen Google Alert bin ich auf den ausführlichen Artikel "Small Council: Is George R.R. Martin justified in being against fanfiction? (Achtung, sehr werbelastige Seite) gestößen, über den ich wiederum auf den George R. R. Martins Text "Someone Is Angry On the Internet" vom 7. Mai 2010 gekommen bin. Martin beschreibt darin eine interessante Beobachtung, was die Bedeutung des Begriffs "fan fiction" betrifft:

//zitat// One of the things I mislike about fan fiction is its NAME. Truth is, I wrote fan fiction myself. That was how I began, when I was a kid in high school writing for the dittoed comic fanzines of the early 1960s. In those days, however, the term did not mean "fiction set in someone else's universe using someone else's characters." It simply meant "stories written by fans for fans, amateur fiction published in fanzines." (...) How and when the term began to be used for what is called fan fiction today, I don't know. I wish there was another term for that, though I confess I cannot think of one that isn't either cumbersome, vague, or prejorative. But it does bother me that people hear I wrote fan fiction, and take that to mean I wrote stories about characters taken from the work of other writers without their consent". //zitatende//
