Good Reading



The stories that are recommended here are my personal favorites. They display extraordinary craftsmanship, imagination, intelligence, or originality (often, all four). They appeal to my taste for unusual perspectives, themes, and visions. They challenge and refute prejudices and easy assumptions about the writing and reading of fan fiction. Most important, they're faithful to their source material and their chosen characters--even in extreme situations, even in alternate universes.
