Thoughtful Thursday: Borrowing Characters? Yay! or No Way?

How do you feel about authors (in a non-fanfiction setting) borrowing other authors characters. For example, there have been several authors who have included Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson in their books as main characters.

Oh my goodness! I’ve read several books where characters from different authors have visited each other, and I FLOVED it! I’m absolutely in favor of it as long as permission is granted.

What about you? Have you read any books where this has happened, and if so did you like it? Would you like to see more of it?

    I like to see it. I think it is interesting to see another view of a character, as long as it is in keeping with the character. It’s almost like watching a movie, after you have read the book. It is fun to see how someone else’s imagination compares to mine.
