Karen Hellekson and Kristina Busse (eds.) 2006. Fan Fiction and Fan Communities in the Age of the Internet: New Essays, Jefferson, N.C.: McFarland & Co.
My rating: ***
Quite interesting with some useful if rather rushed definitions of the some of the jargon used by fan fiction writers in the introduction. A large proportion of the articles in this edited collection are about slash. Slash represents, in terms of volume, the smallest section of fan fiction but it is one that academics gravitate towards with a passion – all that transgression and interesting deviance to wax theoretical over!
Annoyingly I have had to link to Wikipedia again but it does include the most comprehensive and easily accessible set of online references concerning slash.
