>but how many other people can keep writing books >years after their death... It was my understanding that the infamous dekology was written *before* he died, and was merely released post-humously... Lotsa people do that, eh? H. Beam Piper, Heinline, etc. Did anyone ever say otherwise?

while i have not read the dekology myself... i have heard that the books are not written in the same style as you proceed. the first books are definitely hubbard's style... the middle books go down hill, and the final books are in a different style which is better than the middle books, but quite different from the first books.

hubbard has written quite a number of works by which one can judge style. and style is not something that would drastically change in one's later years. not to mention style is something that never changes drastically.
