Achilles/Patroclus: The First Slash?

Recently a fanfic writer tried to sell her unauthorized Star Wars novel on Amazon. The reactions of authors and publishers were negative. An interesting discussion on fanfic in the literary world ensued. The most recent winner of the Pulitzer Prize for fiction is essentially a novel-length fanfic about Little Women. Any interest in making it a book club selection?

I really wanted to write a note about the legal status of fanfic, but it's already been done.

Don't forget: Anansi Boys is this month's book. Email links to your thoughts on it by Sunday.
