* Creator/HPLovecraft fans have [[IHaveManyNames so many nicknames]] for this author that he could have been a CosmicHorror in his own right. shorten his name even further to "HPL". Others still refer to the father of the CthulhuMythos as the appropriately eldritch-looking "Ech-Pi-El" after the phonetic pronunciation of the aforementioned letters. Then you have the fans that reverently refer to him as "The Old Gent". And finally, you have the fans that informally call him by his first name of "Howard" or shorten even that to the cutesy-sounding "Howie", often prefixed with "Grandpa/Grandfather" to show loving appreciation for his work.

It helps that the very first book is officially titled ''[[Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse Star Wars]]: [[XWingSeries X-Wing]]: [[ColonCancer Rogue Squadron]]'' and the fifth one is ''[[Franchise/StarWarsExpandedUniverse Star Wars]]: [[XWingSeries X-Wing]]: [[ColonCancer Wraith Squadron]]''.

Denning's work is characterized for being far DarkerAndEdgier than almost every other corner of the franchise, with an unusually high level of both [[HotterAndSexier sex]] and [[BloodierAndGorier violence]].
