Some agent talked me into writing a ""bible,"" for a fast thousand dollars. (I needed the money). The idea was that other writers, great and famous ones, would have fun playing they were the Captain, filling out the plots. Later, the publisher was sued because the title he gave the series was a trademark infringment on some product or other--and the books were scrapped, supposedly supressed. I never read past the first page in any of them. Draw your own conclusions.
