Re: Fantasy and science fiction set in Africa (or an analogue) An African-inspired world is great setting. Just living in Africa day to day seems like it would be enough to fill a novel up with. I wish their were more fantasy writers from the continent. I imagine an African author would have a lot more muses to go off on then your average American, Canadian, or someone from the UK.

Why is Fan Fiction Looked Down Upon? I know I'm taking a liberal view with how the majority of writers view fan fiction, but when all-star writers like Mr. George R.R. Martin starts dictating why fan fiction is wrong or a waste of time, I think its fair to speak in general.

Honestly, why all the condescension? Fan fiction is a great thing for early writers. I helps young writers practice their skills without having to spend weeks or even months making a sandbox to build their castles in. It's like teaching architects how to construct buildings. You don't give them drafting equipment and then yell 'go.' You give them building blocks. You let them get used to the tools and programs at hand first. Then you throw into the lions' pit. Y'know, because they have experience now.
