The Lois McMaster Bujold FanArt Archive
This section incorporates Fan Art inspired by the work of
Lois McMaster Bujold. Please send in your own material to
In a posting to
the Lois-Bujold mailing list on 16 Oct 97 with the subject
"Fanfic speculation, and Star Trek" Lois McMaster Bujold said:
Yes, I am a fan-ac friendly author; I did indeed write fan-fic in my
teens. Recent legal concerns in genre fiction have rather thrown a
wrench in the deal. In general, it's considered safer for a writer not to
view fan fic centered on their work, so lately, and most reluctantly, I've
taken to avoiding it. Feel free to write amongst yourselves, though.
And this was further clarified
on 30 Nov 01 with the subject "natural copyright OT:" when she said:
I ignore the existence of fanfic based on my universe.
Don't ask, don't tell, and don't bring it to my attention.
In a saner world, I would prefer to be fanfic friendly. But until I have
saved up enough money to retire on (and I have a long way to go to that
goal), there are apparently legal pitfalls here that could cost me a great
deal. I am, with the greatest reluctance and distaste, gradually being
forced to become more cautious.
The dates given above are when the material was first uploaded to the
Archive, or if it is a link to an off site copy, when it was published
there or when I was notified if its existance depending...
