Why are so many fans drawn to write and read fan fiction about Stargate and their other favorite shows? This week Darren and David make up for our inadequacies by bringing on a fan fiction expert: Louisa Robison, a graduate student at the University of Alberta and a fellow fan. Her thesis is titled: “Gilgamesh and Enkido, Arthur and Gwenhywfar, Alexander and Hephaistion, Tristan and Isolde, Jack and Daniel: Retelling epic myth through the medium of fan fiction.”
Our in-depth discussion of the fanfic phenomenon ranges from just who writes it (90 percent women, according to one study), to the use of someone else’s creative property, to relationships, gender issues, and homosexuality in the fan fiction world. If fanfic (of any variety) interests you, don’t miss this week’s show.
First up, we’ll give you a run-down of the latest news from the world of Stargate, as well as the latest additions to GateWorld. You’ll also hear a sneak preview of our upcoming interview with Stargate DVD special features producer Ivon Bartok!
