Mystery Monday

The death of an author does not necessarily mean the end of a beloved series.  If the series has been successful, publishers will not let a little thing like the author's demise be a hindrance. A new writer is chosen, his or her name with be relegated to a tiny font while the title reads something like Robert Ludlum's Jason Bourne in the Bourne Legacy by ... Saddled with a clunky title, the book will nevertheless sell briskly to those who are eager for more time with these cherished characters. My favorite example of a writer who appears to trump death by writing from the grave is the trademarked V.C. Andrews.  After her death in 1986, her family "wanted the torch to continue" and chose a writer to carry that torch.  The writer, Andrew Neiderman, has been unbelievably prolific and has kept her  many fans happy over the years.
