    I'm pretty sure they've finished (or close to) writing Jessica already and have slated it for release next fall. Can't remember where I got that from, but I remember the impression that they'd given up on their two year promise and gone back to one a year. Remember too, Kev "writes" nine to fourteen full novels a year. even assuming he gives a Dune book three times as much time as one of his other peices of garbage that still only adds up to about three months per Dune book - and we are reasonably sure he is writing the vast bulk of each new Dune novel... well you can see where I'm going with this. Very little time goes into each book.

    Holy Shit, does that happen in the book? Okay here's what we do: We tie them to chairs, cut the skin on the upper half of thier craiums off, take a little pick and slowly chisel down into thier brains...

    I was going to say that we should then eat their brains. This would be our way of gaining their powers, but I think their brains would just make us stupid...

    But not until I'd had a chance...TO POOP ON IT!!!
    I have heard of only one mistake that doesn’t have an explanation for a careful reader...with an open mind. (And, no, I’m not going to tell you what it is!) —KJA

    I don't like every writer's style; for instance, I have never been able to get through Ursula LeGuin, China Mieville, or Iain Banks, all of whom are critical darlings. —KJA

    I...had written a bunch of Star Wars and X-Files books...that proved not just that I'm a hack, but that I could write in somebody else's universe... —KJA

    Frank was perverted when it was necessary. If you read Hunters, there's a rather graphic bit involving the description of superhuman-speed vaginal fingering.
