That's what I did with 10 chapters of Hardware Hacking. Shall we
say it was not a financially wise decision?

A lot of authors have done various kinds of writing for money.
And know that Scott Westerfield has written a whole passel of
books of which he was contractually obliged not to reveal the
names. For all we know DWJ has done the same thing although she
has a rather striking style that I've never seen her not use in
fiction. *g*

The cry has been that when war is declared, all opposition should
therefore be hushed.  A sentiment more unworthy of a free country could
hardly be propagated.  If the doctrine be admitted, rulers have only to
declare war and they are screened at once from scrutiny ...  In war,
then, as in peace, assert the freedom of speech and of the press.
Cling to this as the bulwark of all our rights and privileges.
                -- William Ellery Channing
