Meme of the week: your favourite book sequel

In honour of the release of the latest book in the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy range, this week’s meme asks:

What’s your favourite book sequel?

It can be part of a range, it can be by someone other than the original author, it can be authorised or unauthorised. It’s up to you. Anyone saying Eric van Lustbader’s Bourne books will be shot, however.

If you can’t do books, you can always do sequel TV shows (eg Ashes to Ashes). Or you can say which book sequel you really hated.

As always, leave a comment with your answer or a link to your answer on your own blog.
