    KJA - hack writer
    BH- his friend
    P&tB- their nickname, Pinky and the Brian

    Oh, you meant DUNE related, didn't you?

    I feel like we've used H-S for hunter-seekers, but I'm not sure.

    MP- Missionaria Protectiva

    But those are both pretty obscure, not really common use things.
    You aren't thinking or really existing unless you're willing to risk even your own sanity in the judgment of your existence.

    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

    I think Freak is looking for Dune abbreviations, not general abbreviations.

    I wonder if it meant the same thing back in the 60s and that's why FH included the hyphen?! :)

    I was wondering what that HLP stood for for ages... :D
    In memory of Perach, who suffered and died needlessly.

    I wish I could have been with you that one last time.

    Why are you flipping out about what I said? I wasn't picking ON you. TP is the abbreviation for toilet paper, and I said in another post that I didn't remember FH using an abbreviation for telepathy. You seriously need to chill out.

    I'll talk about where I live whenever I want to :wink:

    All you need to do is relax and stop assuming everyone is picking on you. I find it hard to believe that you've lived to be 30 with such thin skin.
