Yeah, right. He died, and *then* wrote _Dianetics_ and the dekalogy.

I don't think anybody seriously believes he's dead. He supposedly faked his death for tax reasons. (Having spent some time working for a lawyer in estate law, I can understand why. Estates get a good tax setup.)

There's a filk song called "L. Ron Ron Ron" (to the tune of "Do Run Run Run") that starts out "He keeps on writing novels though his life is through"--unfortunately, I seem to have lost the file.
