This page collects magazine articles, interviews with otherkin, scholarly papers, and other similar things. Keep in mind that these pieces are generally written by outsiders to the community, and as such may contain inaccuracies or misunderstandings even when they are sympathetic in nature.
See also the otherkin-news community on LiveJournal, which features links to news articles and other media about or of interest to otherkin, therians, and vampires.
An article entitled "Elven Like Me" appeared in the New York publication The Village Voice in February of 2001. The publication of this article spurred a lot of initial activity in getting Otherkin.Net shaped into a community resource.
This article from Fate magazine was an early published article written by someone who is herself otherkin.
Danielle Kirby has written a number of papers on otherkin, including "From Pulp Fiction to Revealed Text: A Study of the Role of Text in the Otherkin Community" (some of which can be read here on Google Books ); in the references for that paper she also cites one of her earlier pieces, "Alternative Worlds: Metaphysical Questioning and Virtual Community Amongst the Otherkin ".
Another frequent writer on otherkin is Joseph Laycock . See also this list of his works as of February 2012 , compiled by Merticus.

An interview with a Daoine Sithe [sic] named Luke . Some of the responses in this intervew strike me as rather odd ("Innate Species Persona"? a "dark-elfkin" dating a "light-elfkin" would "raise some eyebrows"?), but I link to it here for general interest and perspective.
