People often asked me how much of the series was mine and how much was Smith's. The answer is very simple. Smith invented the universe and gave it its direction; I took that framework and built everything else: all further characters, all further situations, all further plots including the story arc that threads through all ten books. In fact, a lot of the first book was mine, too, because in novelizing the story I nearly tripled its original length.
Family d'Alembert Series
In the original story, the villain -- who has organized a plot that encompasses two-thirds of the Empire -- never once appears on stage. This is a surprising lapse, since Smith was noted for creating some of the most memorable villains in science fiction. I corrected the oversight in the novel version. During the meeting, he uttered words no author ever expects to hear from a publisher: "What should we do about the covers?

In due course, George was contacted and ended up doing covers for the U. Apparently a new art director came along with the deal, because I received a cover proof for the fifth book that stunned me to my core. George Barr's elegant artwork had been replaced by glitz and flash.
I'm told that the new artist, Stanislaw Fernandes, has won prestigious design awards in New York -- but that doesn't make me like the covers one iota more. To make matters worse, Jove reissued the first four books with new Fernandes covers, dropping the Barrs completely. Jove was eventually bought out by Berkley Publishing.

Unfortunately, the new art director decided not to make changes, and the whole rest of the series had Fernandes covers. Like many concepts in the book world, "series" is a somewhat fluid and contested notion. A good rule of thumb is that series have a conventional name and are intentional creations , on the part of the author or publisher. For now, avoid forcing the issue with mere "lists" of works possessing an arbitrary shared characteristic, such as relating to a particular place.
