I stumbled across an article on the web the other day that discussed the controversy of L.J. Smith being booted from her own series, THE VAMPIRE DIARIES. The series will continue to be written under the name L.J. Smith, but by another author. I found this tidbit to be shocking, and it got me thinking: What other SFF works have been ghost-written? What famous SFF authors were also ghost writers? Here are three examples:
1. The Madman Theory by Ellery Queen
Ghosted by Jack Vance
2. The Curse of Yig by Zealia Bishop
Ghosted by H.P. Lovecraft *Lovecraft also ghosted for Harry Houdini on a few occasions
3. TekWar by William Shatner
Ghosted by Ron Goulart
Do you know of other ghost-written SFF works? I would also like to hear your thoughts on the L.J Smith controversy. We will choose one commenter to receive a free book from the many choices in our stacks.
