Terry Pratchett's unfinished works flattened by steamroller

The Salmon of Doubt

In two minds about this:

Stuff found on the hard drive of the late Douglas Adams was compiled in to a book. Much of little value, but I enjoyed reading the first chapters of a new Dirk Gently novel. Franz Kafka wanted his work destroyed, and (according to Quartz Media) we only have The Metamorphosis because his wishes were ignored. It does seem weird to let the dead decide on the best course of action for those of us left behind.

We're going to face this more often, and should be thinking about our own digital detritus as well of that belonging to the rich and famous.
