I'm working on the Wiki page for the M*A*S*H novel and sequels, if
anyone wants to come over and add to this, feel free:

M*A*S*H: A Novel About Three Army Doctors, the original novel that
inspired the M*A*S*H movie and TV series, was written by Richard
Hooker, himself a former military surgeon, and was about a U.S. Mobile
Army Surgical Hospital in Korea during the Korean War. It was
originally published in 1968 and several sequels followed after the
success of the TV series. William E. Butterworth (W.E.B. Griffin) is
credited as co-author on most of the sequels, but may have actually
ghostwritten them.

Beginning with M*A*S*H Goes to Paris, all the later novels (except for
M*A*S*H Mania) largely left the original characters behind to focus on
extraneous characters, mostly caricatures of public figures from the
1970s: for instance, operatic tenor Luciano Pavarotti is parodied in
the form of a singer named "Korsky-Rimsakov", and news anchor Dan
Rather becomes the egotistical "Don Rhotten".
