    I had no problem with that either, however as much as I liked the these series written by the original authors I could never get into the Robert Goldsborough Wolfe books, or the Lin Carter/L. Sprague Camp Conan books, John Gardner James Bond books, Robert Parker's Poodle Springs. Outside of Max Collins finishing up Dead Street, I can't think of any series that was taken over by a different author that I cared for.

    Btw. if I could've taken over the Nero Wolfe series, I would have had the books narrated by Wolfe--a losing battle trying to compete with Stout's voice and have Archie keep narrating them.
