Community: Russian fantasy

Russians have a huge fantasy literature; its history as well the history
of its fandoms has been documented at www.fandom.ru. Fanfiction is not a very popular topic there though, so the only information I was able to obtain so far concerns only two fandoms of Vera Kamsha and Olga Gromyko.

2001

First Kamsha book is printed (Temnaja Zvezda Dark Star)

2002

Official Kamsha fan-site - www.kamsha.ru

Unofficial fan-site - http://olmer.ru.kamsha

First slash-fics by Kreidy and Taelle

2003

First Olga Gromyko books of Volha Rednaya cycle are published

2004

The first and the second books of Otbleski Eterny cycle are published
(March and October)

May: the first slash-fic based on Eterna by Viorteya tor Deriul

October:a blog-community http://www.diary.ru/~kamsha/ is founded

November: the site http://offtop.slashfiction.ru is opened: It is dedicated to various
"minor" slash-fandoms; but mostly to Kamsha.

Most fics based on Kamsha texts are either slash or gen, there is no
het. Moreover, Kamsha is probably the only author who officially allowed
her fen to slash her characters.

Gromyko fansites are: http://europa.ehu.by/econ/Volha/;
http://www.ogromyko.narod.ru/ - now: http://www.volha.ru/;
