Re: Question for authors: General 'rules' for tie-in media (any franch

"Respect & play true to the source material" is pretty much the rule.

As for canon and continuity- Canon is subjective, and different for everybody. Some franchises have a single spokesperson who decrees what it is, and others don't, but in any case every member of the audience has their own canon.

For continuity, I think Dr Who legend Terrance Dicks said it best- "Continuity is what you can remember at the time"
