Fan Fiction Archive Statistics & Links


This table only lists archives for which I have statistical information (i.e. numbers). Please, please email me if you know can give me statistical information on any archive with more than 100 stories.

The Xena-Hercules and Buffy-Angel fandoms are "cat-herding," with no real attempt at central archives: the ones listed are just the largest I've found so far. I'm also especially interested in archives from the major manga, anime, and music fandoms.

I've written about this data in a paper,

. These numbers are from the fall of 2000; more recent information is linked to my fanfiction statistics page.
