Actually that would be pretty interesting, like an encyclopedia. Always that they left out the KJA/BH stuff.
Only the books written by Frank Herbert are canon.

There's Dune entries in both the Cliffs Notes and SparkNotes series. They're not bad at all ... not particularly deep, of course, but not bad.

yeah i got a good laugh out of seeing PoD in our bargain section. every other No-Dune title took about a year to get there. Pod made it what, six months?

I got it free from work for xmas. The Store Manager put it with the xmas freebies because we had sold 6 copies total.

Fort Worth, Texas. Not the sci-fi capital of the world, but still a rather large metropolitan area.

Thanks, I wonder if that's typical of sales overall.

I doubt it, I think the sad fact is that those hacks are doing fairly well. I've noticed a trend (only over the last half year or so), that most of the bookstores here tend to stock about 4 or 5 different FH books, and only one of each of those, then they stock about 6 or 7 of the new books, with multiples of each. Sad.

That said I don't work there so for all I know the FH just flies off the shelfs every time they get a shipment and that's why it looks lacking... but I doubt it, then they would just order more.

There isn't anything in those that BH&KJA haven't already ignored.
