Outlander the  Musical.   I had seen somthing about this, what ever floats your boat I guess.

The Anthology did you notice that she is in there with George R.R. Martin, let's hope she doesn't pick up his bad habits and not put out the next Outlander book for 75 years.

I'd heard about the musical before. I'm beginning to think Outlander is now a big cash cow.

I just don't see that as a musical. I thought it would be great as a mini series though.

I wouldn't be surprised to see the action figures, lol.

I noticed her statement about fan fiction on her website (she asks that people not write it or post it on the net)...is this the way most authors feel about fan fiction? I've never thought or wondered about fan fiction before, but this is the 3rd time I've noticed authors having a statement about it on their website lately. Is fan fiction something authors see as a growing problem that requires addressing now...or have I just never noticed how authors feel about it before now? I don't know.

I can understand why authors wouldn't want fan fiction based on their work, but I also see it as a form of flattery, too. Fan fiction is extremely popular online, so it might even be a way to advertise their work and bring in new readers. There is that copyright issue though! ;-)
