Gabaldon on Fan Fiction
Diana Gabaldon has gone on record as opposing fan fiction based on her books.
A Controversial Blog Post
On May 3, 2010, she posted to her blog an entry which began: "OK, my position on fan-fic is pretty clear: I think it’s immoral, I _know_ it’s illegal, and it makes me want to barf whenever I’ve inadvertently encountered some of it involving my characters."

Official Fanfiction Policy
You know, I'm very flattered that some of you enjoy the books so much that you feel inspired to engage with the writing in a more personal way than most readers do. Both for legal and personal reasons, though, I'm not comfortable with fan-fiction based on any of my work, and request that you do not write it, do not send it to me, and do not publish it, whether in print or on the web. Thank you very much for your courtesy and consideration. And I think that’s about all I have to say.
