Author estates: Super complicated

We all know how effed Steig Larsson's estate is. Well, it turns out his problem is not so uncommon. The answer, of course, is to 1) write a will, 2) never produce anything anyone cares about, or 3) leave it all to me, and I will milk every last penny out of your blood, sweat, and tears.


  1. Dealing with estates is always the worst. And when the kids are a-warring. It's even worst-er.

  2. The "never produce anything anyone cares about" option is probably the way most of us will avoid these estate problems.

    Never making any money will help us steer clear of these tacky situations as well.
