Well they still do, but nearly on the same level.

Artist in residence, and consignments and...

What's to stop one of us from paying someone in the fanfiction forum to write us Janeway stories to order?

Do an American Idol Audition tender process... Get them to fight for the privilege of accepting your dosh.

Of course then we get into ownership issues, that you bought the story, but they created the story, so shouldn't they deserve a kickback if you resell or should you get pissed if they continue to sell the story which was made to your order?

Damn those copyright laws!

I'd love to see a really good author take the Voyager relaunch, include all the original crew, and write a compelling (and plausible) series of novels about them following Endgame. I personally think they would sell like hotcakes.
