In what way "surpassed"? Kingsley Amis was technically a much better writer than Ian Fleming, but his COLONEL SUN was, in my opinion, a pretty pale Jame Bond. I generally note that writers who pick up earlier writers' characters seldom do themselves or the inventor credit. In what way was Perowne an exception to this?
