  1. There was a story I read about Warren Murphy and Richard Sapir’s The Destroyer series. In the 5th book Dr Quake, I think I was Sapir, killed of the co-lead Chuin. Murphy asked what he was doing and Sapir said it was a great scene. Murphy said that they couldn’t kill Chuin as he was their bread and butter and rewrote the scene. 150 books later it looks like Murphy was right.

  2. Yeah, that’s spot on, Brad. Great scenes are great, but they’re rarely going to be so great that it is worth hurting the overall series for them.
