Gav Thorpe on tie-in fiction

As regular readers of this blog will know, I've been following the debate regarding tie-in fiction versus own-world creations for some time now.

However, today I read an interesting piece on this subject by Gav Thorpe, with the benefit of his experience as both a writer of tie-in fiction and the custodian of a franchise universe.

The point which I think he makes particularly well is at the end and concerns the snobbery many people have regarding the merits of tie-in fiction in general. But rather than spoil the surprise, you can read it for yourself here.
