Academic librarian here! I cast a net through the Proquest Theses and Dissertations database, and found some more-or-less recently-published dissertations, chapters, and books that dealt with fanfiction. There don't seem to be a lot of books dealing only with fanfiction, but there's a lot of papers being published as chapters in larger new media studies volumes, and some pedagogical and literacy-related books as well. Hopefully there's some stuff you haven't come across before here.
