  •  I was refering back to (5+ / 0-)

    The Casebook of Sherlock Holmes.  Theres some pretty good Holmes Pastiches out there- Laurie King comes to mind, but there are some really ungodly awful  Holmes "fan-fic".

    Does anyone else find that there is more sci-fi/fantasy fan-fic (and therefore more truly awful stuff) than mystery fan-fic?  Is there any Romance or Western Fanfic?  Just curious.  I would imagine theres a lot of Twi-light stuff- not sure where that would go.

    Don't get me wrong- theres a lot of bad mystery writing.  There just doesn't seem to be the same -"so bad its good" stuff.  Its  just..... bad.

      You can check out if you have any doubts. (In particular, there's fanfic based on Bonanza, The High Chaparral, and other TV-Westerns. And there's lots of Bronte-based stuff. And 162 fanfics based on Romeo and Juliet....)

      •  I've seen fanfiction for The Black Stallion (0+ / 0-)

        Fortunately it wasn't smutty.  If it had been, I think I would have killed myself.

        OTOH, someone wrote a Knightrider story where Michael has sex with KITT.  Not on KITT or near KITT, WITH KITT.
