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

filkers

We've all heard of fan fiction and 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.

We have quite a few fantasy and sci-fi writers on the Colony. Are any of you filkers?

Every year at our national Science Fiction and Fantasy Convention, there's a filking contest, and usually some filking sessions where people work up songs, jam, whatever. I've never actually attended any of them, I'm afraid. I tend toward the author sessions, rather than the fan sessions.
