Of course he fucking would!
Just like I'm convinced that he brings in elements from the OH and Jacurutu discussions, as well as modeling the Rhombur/Bronso interaction on his own Step-father/Step-son relationship. Just like how every major trope in modern sci-fi magically appears in KJA's Dune, so much so that we can identify which specific movie or book he lifted it from.
Not surprised one bit. I bet Mr. Salas even has a personalized copy of "Winds" signed by KJA telling him he's part of the legend now too!
on the upside, we now know that if we offer KJA enough money or shill-reviews, we can get our own names in the Dune books! (aside from constantly being refered to as dimwitted religious fanatics that we get for free).
here's how you can mention me KJA, the twisted wreckage of the battleship Ampoliros
could crash land on Salusa Secundus and Shaddam could use it as his flagship. It even still has all the crew corpsified and on board to be ghola'd into service by the Tleilaxu.
