You can say that, but my perfect example of this would be Stephen King's Dark Tower series...churned out the last three books over 3 years, and they were all mostly garbage.
I would say "Shut. Your. Whore. Mouth." But I understand you probably hated the ending.
First, TDT I: The Gunslinger, without a doubt, was the WORST, most poorly written book in the series, (even the revised version) and in the top 3 worst King has ever written, period.
Of course, it was written by a 19
and for a first novel, it still blows many authors' first attempts outta the water.
Second, while the last three books were Published
in a three year period, he started finishing the books while still convalescing in ''99. Writing them, that is to say-
The last 3 weren't even close to 'thrown together garbage,' considering "sub-volumes" include the novels:
Hearts in Atlantis
From a Buick 8
Eyes of the Dragon
Those last three books solidified TDT as his Magnum Opus and revealed that the series in its entirety has been an ongoing life's work since 1966, eight years before Carrie
was published, and includes most of his library written since - and technically, it's not complete - Book "4.5" was published in 2011: "The Wind Through the Keyhole"
What King did after the accident was realize he wasn't going to let Robert Jordan's lesson slip past him. He re-evaluated his priorities, bigtime, and tackled the beast head-on. A VERY admirable job he did, too.
Our beloved fat man better do the same, quick fast and in a hurry. He and he only can decide how
he wants to be remembered. What
he will be remembered for has already been decided- finished or not.
