Newsday presents a general report on HP fanfic. Quotage:
Move over, J.K. Rowling. Frustrated with waiting for the author to supply the answers - presumably in her fifth book, "The Order of the Phoenix," due to hit bookstores June 21 - fans have taken matters into their own hands. They've logged on by the tens of thousands to a "fan fiction" network to write their own passages, spinning scenarios into chapters and - in some cases - entire books that are posted online, reviewed, e-mailed to friends and chewed over in chat rooms.
