Let dead authors rest in peace - please.
Last week, I was distraught to learn that A A Milne's trustees had allowed David Benedictus to wirte a sequel to Winnie the Pooh.
Now, Douglas Adams' estate has Eoen Colfer writing a sequel to "The Hitchhiker's Guide..."
(And there's other authors who have been treated similarly - Ian Fleming comes to mind).
As far as I can see, it is just a sordid money grabbing exercise - "Dig up the dead and get them to dance for a few more pennies."
I know that David Benedictus and Eoen Colfer are already established authors, but don't they have a conscience? How do they justify it to themselves?
Am I the only one who feels strongly about this?
