From a thread below.
Continuators are authors who continue a series normally because the original author has passed away.

Which series would you like to "continue"?

For me, I'd like to write more Cornwell's Sharpe books.
They'd cover all the Napoleonic battles Sharpe could logically be in that are not already covered…..oh. I guess that leaves nothing to add.

Hmm, when I met the author he admitted that the fiction was very entertaining, but Sharpe was telling tall tales since in some of the battles he must have been in a lot of pain since he was resting from wounds already described in an earlier book because of overlapping chronology.

He said that Sharpe might have gone to Russia or Austria as well….

And that Sharpe learned his ABC and more complex reading skills in a scene where he was a prisoner in India, whilst in reality the events unfolding in the montage lasted for …. just one night.

@ Mad


I was, of course, having a gentle dig at a series that brought me pleasure to read.

I think the author was as well… the talk was fantastic. The audience got to ask lots of questions, including linking up some of the series…

I asked if he was going to do sharpes great grandad… at Blenheim or ramilles… and he said that another author had already done that…

BTW don't you love authors who speak of their creations as if they are real people?

I think it shows genuine commitment to the creative process.
