Amazon’s Kindle Worlds program, which secures licenses that allow self-published authors to legally sell Kindle fan fiction based on properties like Gossip Girl and Kurt Vonnegut’s books, added a few more brands to its lineup Wednesday. Among them: Hasbro’s G.I. Joe and Warner Brothers shows Veronica Mars and Ravenswood.
