Prolific dead-author alert: Isaac Asimov estate announces new 'I, Robot' trilogy | "Isaac Asimov may have died in 1992, but that doesn’t mean he can’t still publish new books. The sci-fi giant’s estate signed a deal last week with Penguin’s Berkley imprint for a new I, Robot prequel trilogy penned by Mickey Zucker Reichert, the author of the fantasy series Renshai."

"Uh-Oh" is right. Doing a "new" trilogy of Asimov's classic series is almost as bad as ghosting "new" Nero Wolfe novels.
