Sercon Faanfiction

A term coined by Larry Stark in the mid-1950s to describe a form of faanfiction (that is, fiction about fans) that was not primarily humorous in intent but rather a serious piece of fiction that used fans and fandom as its backdrop. Stark was one of the better earlier practitioners. Kent Moomaw’s “The Adversaries,” and James White’s “The Exorcists of IF” are often cited as some of the better examples of this form of fan writing.
