Byron was pre-spice grandson, or something like that, on the 'Raad.
Ole Dune Pussy
(The only moral high ground Brian had was his decision not to continue the Dune series after reading what his father had wrote in Chapter House Dune about his mother. He had the right idea. Stop there. No one or nothing could persuade him, until Kevin called. Now think about that for a moment. He was so moved by his father's words over the lose of his wife and her place as a part of the writing process of Dune, that he was compelled not to touch the series, until one phone call from Kevin. "We hit it off so well I decided to go ahead and start writing again." Just like that one phone conversation. There was no cliff hanger, only a mystery about two of the characters. Dune was in cinders (symbolic). BG did their thing, but would be changed forever. Good place to stop on top of the dedication to Mrs. Herbert. What would Kevin say that could trump that? Because they "hit it off so well?" Pretty weak. I say he just unknowingly admitted it was franchise or money by his response, especially in light of the fact, that Brian did actually know Kevin before the big phone conversation, because he wrote a glowing review of Ai! Perdito, the collaboration between KJA and L Ron Hubbard as a result of their L Ron Hubbard W
riters of t
uture shared connection.)
