    I've seen this done quite a few times, most notably with Sherlock Holmes after Sir Arthur Conan Doyle died. The results were laughable to say the least.

    So, does Douglas Adams' legacy need to be tainted? By his own wife? So soon after his death? What the heck is the point? I have every single book DA wrote, and I won't even get close to the new installments.

    thats just dumb the point of a book is to express an authors individual art
    how can you do that when another author is writing for you

    That is almost as horrible as Brian Herbert continuing the Dune saga... Sadly I'll probably read those eventually.

    The only times that such projects ever work is:

    1) when the author is very well chosen - ie not just the son continuing on the "Legacy" (though Tolkiens seems to be doing very well 0 but then point 2)

    2) When the writings are not adding to the story, but building upon or finishing the story (untimly death) which can be based upon extensive notes of the author as well as actual contact and interaction between writer and the former author.

    I think this breaches both rules - so it is sad news indeed :(
