Filk Music

A strange article appeared in today’s The Free Dictionary newsletter. Filk music has been around for a long time, it seems.

We’ve all heard of fan fiction, and I knew about comic conventions, where fans dress up as their favourite characters, but this is the first time I’ve become aware of music based on science fiction and fantasy writing.

It takes all sorts, I guess.

If you write Fantasy or Science Fiction are you also a filker?
