The Goblin Market was a ship war challenge for the Demon's Lexicon trilogy written by Sarah Rees Brennan.

Overview

The Goblin Market drew its inspiration from Trekstock, a Star Trek ship war challenge. The creators described it as "a fanfic festival/challenge, in which people form teams based on their favourite pairing within TDL and then attempt to prove their ship's superiority in a fight to the death squee. What does a fight to the squee involve? Lots and lots of fic. And art, vids, fanmixes or anything else you are inclined towards. And it involves less in the way of angst and pain, and more by way of mutual enjoyment and porn respect." [1]

End of Goblin Fest

Despite mention of a second run [2], there are no links to a 2011 iteration of Goblin Wars. This event did however lend inspiration to the Homestuck Shipping Olympics, which carried on the legacy of this type of fanwork challenge.
