Babblers: Bjorn, Gem, Renee, Donny

Synopsis:

This week’s topic is about authors who suck over time; examples of writers who start off their careers with a bang, but slowly whimper and choke as their output quality deteriorate over time.  The babblers discusses why this happens, and touch on authors who do not suck as they go along.  Also, Donny talks about an attempt to improve on a timeless Jane Austen classic with, uhm, something you might not expect.
