I think I'd make a distinction between the 'serious' efforts and the hearse-chasers. Jill Paton Walsh's continuation of Dorothy L Sayers' Peter Wimsey series was a thoughtful exercise which I enjoyed. Compare and contrast to the various Alistair Maclean knock-offs "from an idea he scribbled on a restaurant menu in an off moment". Seems to come down to quality vs. rubbish that's just trading on the name?
