Holly Hobbie Mania

Up until I wrote this blog post, I had no idea that Holly Hobbie is a real person. My entire world has been changed.

"In 1980, Holly was featured in The Adventures of Holly Hobbie, a novel by Richard Dubelman. In this book, Holly Hobbie is a ghost who lives in a painting from 1803. She comes out of the painting to help a descendant, Liz Dutton, find her missing father, an archaeologist who has vanished in Guatemala."

I don't even.

...and today John Scott Tynes discovers what happens when you put a great franchise in the hands of a hack writer.

Future generations would see the owners of nearly every major franchise turn their work over to such authors. Spin-off novels are big money because bottom-feeder fans need their fix no matter how ludicrous or badly written. The original Star Trek series was still in its first season when Bantam Books was commissioned to "print money" for Mr. Roddenberry and the publisher's many successors have never let up since.

In the case Star Wars, the lunatics have not only taken over the asylum, now they own it outright.

It's heartbreaking.

I remember thinking it was pretty wild, when I found out that Holly Hobbie created Holly Hobbie. My mind was completely blown, however, when I discovered that she also wrote and illustrated the Toot and Puddle series. :-D
