  • This paper introduces the concept of fan fiction and identifies distinctions between professionally published fan fiction, self-published fan fiction and online fan fiction as a way of presenting online fan fiction as a useful tool for reader's advisory and creative writing education. Using a sample of five texts for each of these three categories, this paper analyzes the works' contents for characters, settings, plots and themes from the original novel on which they are based, Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, as well as the type of sequel and genre. The findings describe what distinctions are found in the samples as respect these concepts and support the use of online fan fiction as resources for readers and writers.
