The New Hardcovers

Postby Purge » 26 Feb 2009 20:03

It's a shame that Frank's demon seed defiled the new hardcovers with his preq-shilling foreward. I was interested in buying them up until that point.

I'm not interested in buying anything new from them. Every dime they make justifies their continued rape of Dune.
As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Hypatia approaches one.

I go back and forth on this. As it is I have only bought the ACE hb of Dune that came out years ago, not the new five in the 'eco-clad' covers. Im a hb snob, but I really hate the idea of giving those butt-smacks any more money. Maybe I'll by used copies sometime.

And If you rip that pages off? Or paste a nice picture.
Only the books written by Frank Herbert are canon.
