After a number of years, Mercedes Lackey’s policy allowed offline fanfic, but simply if the writer got a release document from Mercedes Lackey that said the writer accredited that they were using characters belonging to her and that the writer’s work basically became Mercedes Lackey’s property to stop infringing on her right of making a living from her own imagination.

    Mercedes Lackey is my all time favorite author. I have almost every single book she wrote. Now I decided to listen to them on audible. Started with Magic’s Pawn. So looking forward to this new journey! Thanks you Mercedes! I have been a kid in a candy store reading your books over the last 25+ years!

    Mercedes did not write Bedlam Boyz, that was Ellen Beeman. The book Mercedes DID write was Bedlams Bard. Totally reasonable mistake with this volume of work. Fantastic website, thank you for doing all of this.

      Hi Kyndra,

      Not a mistake. That book is part of that series and that is why we list that. We also state below that it is by Ellen Guon. Thanks for checking with us though and for the feedback. Much appreciated.
