Well, they say better late than never… Recently I have found two interesting posts on Celia Friedman’s writings. Both are from the blog of Jared and both were written over a year ago, and I have only found them recently via Google+.
The first is an analytical piece on the treatment of religion in The Coldfire Trilogy and The Magisters series.
The second is a passionate polemics with the author’s opinion on slash fanfiction.
One may agree or not, but, in my opinion, both are well worth reading!
Also, it reminds me that it is high time that I wrote an analytical piece on slash fiction myself. My opinions did evolve in recent years and the essay I wrote ten years ago and that can be found on this blog now seems too me hopelessly simplistic and naive, not to say, in some places, downright stupid…
The Polish translation of the newest story by Celia S. Friedman, set in the Coldfire world, will be published in the next issue of Nowa Fantastyka!
Najnowszy tekst Celii S. Friedman, mini-powieść ze świata Trylogii Zimnego Ognia, ukaże się w przyszłym numerze Nowej Fantastyki!
Ten years ago I fell in love with a novel by Celia S. Friedman. This is a tribute to this love.
For now, most of the content has been moved here from my now defunct fan site for the author (csfriedman.webpark.pl). More to come, hopefully.
