Top 10 Father and Son Writing Teams

Top 10 Father and Son Writing Teams presented by AbeBooks: "Sons who have followed in their literary fathers' footsteps and become authors are surprisingly common. Perhaps it’s the genes? Perhaps it was inspiring to see father disappear off and hammer away at the typewriter for hour after hour. AbeBooks has selected the top 10 father and son author double-teams and there are plenty of big-hitters."

I saw that list. I was unaware of several of the second generation authors. I could add to the list Andre Dubus and Andre Dubus III. The dad is perhaps my favorite short story writer of all time. He wrote many many outstanding stories - a master of the form.

I agree with Frank on the late great Andre Dubus.

I'm surprised the list did not mentioned Stephen King's second son, Owen, who has written at least one book of stories.

Pretty good stories, too, as you and I have noted.
