A few weeks back reader Neil Vogler pointed me to an article in the Guardian that addresses an interesting question about authorship, intent, and propriety.
Recently, several different posthumous book projects have been announced, some even that are against the deceased author’s wishes.
How do we feel about this? Should an author be able to dictate what works are and aren’t published, even after death? Should we abide by their decisions? Or does the public deserve to have a full airing of an author’s work?
