I just arrived home from Borders (where I picked up the LOVELY new Rolling Stone magazine, BTW, with Pirate Jack on the cover - RRROWWRRR!), and while I was perusing the magazines, I found one called "Film Fantasy" specifically about POTC. I think it's one of those one-time vanity things a publisher might put out to supplement income and cash in on a hot trend - sort of like those magazines that concentrate on LOTR when a new movie is coming out, and the like?
ANYWAY ... some of our very own writers in LJ are listed in the very back of the magazine as part of a "top 10" recommendation of fanfic online about POTC. honorat
, and geek_mama_2
are listed, as well as several other writers I've not heard of. (I just scanned the descriptions of the list, but I don't think they covered slash. I believe the magazine is probably aimed at teenagers.)
They have a paragraph description of each story and the praises of it, why it's in the magazine. It's called "Film Fantasy" and is published by Bauer Publishing as part of its "Life Story" series - I can't find anything online about it, but you can find it at Borders (and possibly other stores) for $10 right now.
EDIT (July 2): I picked up a copy of the magazine. The compilation of these stories is credited to G. "ErinRua" Atwater, which the magazine states is webmistress of a POTC site, captainjack.t35.com/FanFic.html (I have seen this page before, and I suspect so have a few of you). I cannot find, however, who actually picked these particular stories.( Genfic Recommendations Ahoy! )
