Attitudes Toward Fanworks
At some point in the 1980s or 1990s, a zine editor reports Tanith Lee's negative response to a zine she wanted to publish:
Based on Tanith Lee's Kill the Dead novel, which Blake's 7 actor Paul Darrow declared was based on the characters of Avon and Vila, ... [when Donald A. Wolheim] mentioned the zine to Ms. Lee, she was appalled. She was very concerned at that moment in time that any hint that her novel - which was currently out of print - might be construed as stepping on BBC copyright. The zine died a sudden and definitive death.
By the 2000s, Lee appeared more positive towards fandom and fanworks. She guested at fancon Redemption 2003, and politely declined an invitation to contribute to a projected sequel to the Blake's 7 zine TTBA.
