Here's an interesting one. I was just having a brief discussion with an English Lit student friend of mine about the concept of 'Death of the Author.' If you haven't heard of it, the idea is basically that a writer has no authority over a text once it's written. Since the text is open to interpretation by all, and each reader's interpretation is equally valid, not to mention just as valid as the author's, the theory holds that the author for all intents and purposes 'dies' the moment a text is completed.
This concept came about some years before web fiction, of course, and it probably didn't occur to whoever came up with it (Barber or Baber or something, I think) that a text might be read while in progress. I suppose that would count as an incomplete text.
Anyway, I just wondered if any of the rest of you guys had heard of it- and, if you had, did you have any opinions on the validity of your own deaths?
