    Check out Kevin's book of advice for writers. There are sample chapters which include such inspired advice as "brush your teeth," and "let your wife dress you."

    and wrote a Dune Novel."

    Why does everything that guy puts out read like some sort of contractual obligation?

    I could try and make an open marriage Heinlein joke here, but the hack isn't worth it...

    I'm assuming this is a rhetorical question. churning out pot-boilers is what they do. and by they, I mean the Kevins of the world.

    This is a work of fiction. All the characters and events portrayed in this book are fictional, and any resemblance to real people or incidents is purely coincidental.
