For the past few years we've been treated to multi-novel series with multiple authors.  I particularly enjoyed this year's Typhon Pact books.  It seems to me that the series constantly improve in their coordination of story arc, character development etc. 


I'm very curious as to how this all gets pulled off.  Who decides the over-arching story, the parameters of possible character development.  Is it an editor, a committee?  Do all the writers get together and brainstorm? 


Like to hear from anyone who knows, perhaps even from one of the writers who post to or monitor this board.

There's an editor in charge of all star trek stories published at pocket books. that person oversees the big picture. Authors will also interact with each other as most know each other by now.
