Diana Gabaldon and fanfic

What a weird coincidence. Not four hours ago, a friend enthusiastically recced Diana Gabaldon’s novels to me. Friends have recced these books to me before, and this time I decided it was time I started reading her work.

Until I read this:

I make it a policy *not* to read the work of authors who disapprove of fanfic. I rarely read bookfic, I’ve never written it, but “too many books too little time”. I’d rather read works by fan-friendly pro authors.

So – if anyone reading this likes Diana’s work, would you re-read it knowing her opinion of fanfic writers?
