What are your thoughts on sharing your story world with other writers? Would you be willing to have another writer co-write a book with you?
If you have a shared story world, would you want separate authors to collaborate or not? Use each other’s characters?
Back in the 80s, Robert Lynn Asprin did a shared universe of Thieves’ World. It was a fantastic bit of writing, and each short story could and did use characters from other writers in the anthologies. The only deal was you couldn’t kill or alter someone else’s character, but other than that, have fun. I recall the names of many of the characters decades later.
That was a collaboration that worked especially well and I’d love to see something similar be published. Shared universe? Sure. Collaborated universe? Yes!
