(re: Fan Fiction) Fan fiction in general is any story or work written that is in the world of another existing work. For example, a Star Trek fan writes his own Star Trek story, but just for fun. Technically, it can be considered copyright infringement, but it seems to depend on the rights owners and how they feel about it.
Over the years, there have been fanfics, or stories by fans, in the world of various Sierra games. There’s Gabriel Knight fan fiction and King’s Quest fan fiction. There’s especially a lot of Quest for Glory fan fiction. Basically, some of us love the games so much that we write our own stories ourselves that take place in these game worlds.
That’s what fan fiction is. And just so you know, plenty of fanfics are the length of a novel, being numerous chapters, so keep that in mind.
