Tomorrow, the Universe  
Fanfic at The New Yorker
Why does our beloved genre and its epiphenomena keep breaking through into the mainstream? IMO, because we have so many cool toys, and writers have near-zero resistance to them. The privileging of the mainstream was a social construct built around a distribution channel, and Main Street’s been in bad shape for a while now, but there’s nothing theoretical about a case of the plot bunnies. Ask any writer who’s had one. The only way to get rid of a plot bunny, even a disreputably fannish one, is to write it.
Thanx to Making Light.

The Harry Potter item referred to is hardly the first fan-fic in the New Yorker. I just had cause to retrieve the X-Files fanfic they published in 1996.
