Re: [mythsoc] Copyright Loremasters?
- Jase, the sequel or prequel by a different author goes back a long way in literary history, e.g. Ariosto continuing Boiardo. However questionable this sort of thing may be, it's of long standing. The first example that came to my mind was the innumerable Sherlock Holmes stories that have been written by authors other than Doyle. Some of them have been very popular and at least one received much literary praise (e.g. Chabon's Final Solution). All of which you probably knew already.
- Yes, as David says, it's a great story. The closing sentence is particularly memorable -- but there's no way to share it with anyone without spoiling the story. It's not that often I call something a masterpiece, but "The Ugly Chickens" is one.--John R.On May 9, 2011, at 8:23 AM, Mem Morman wrote:
