7 Fan Fictions by Published Authors Available to Read Online

It has become quite common these days for writers to withdraw their original fanfiction, give the characters a quick name change, and then repost them as original fiction. (See here for my list of books that started as Twilight / Harry Potter products). But what about the other way around? A few now famous writers have left outpourings from their fan fiction days still available online for us to read. Here is a list of those I was able to find.

My attempts to include various writers have been limited due to the ridiculous niche of this topic, so here is an uplifting post on how fan fiction can be a platform for marginalized voices too!

Unfortunately, many writers who wrote fan fiction (Naomi Novik, Neil Gaiman, Sarah Rees Brennan, etc.) have removed them for various legal reasons, so take advantage of the ones that remain!
