A Strange Email from the Grandson of Dune

I got a very strange email the other day, and I don't know what to make of it.

I read the first part of it, which went:

------------------------------------------

Hi Eyeris,

You've got a pretty nice website. I've just started blogging myself and you can check out my blog (if you've got the time) at: http://thefanatical.blogspot.com/
It is also "author" related.


-------------------------------------

Well, so far so good. Seems fairly innocuous, nothing special. Just another email from a fan (as if lar I get any. heh)

Then I got to the signature:

---------------------------------
Have a great day.

Sincerely, Byron Merritt

Grandson of Frank Herbert
Author of DUNE

Wait.

Hold on.

Rewind a bit.

Grandson of Frank Herbert, Author of DUNE?!?!?!?!

Eh? WHAT? REALLY?

THIS I had to see for myself. So I went over to the blog, and lo and behold, there, among other posts about FWOMP (his writers critique group), and Google Print, was THIS little gem of a post:

Understanding Grandpa

Cool. I guess he really IS the grandson of Frank Herbert, huh?

So, now the question is... How come you ended up in MY blog? *scratches head*
