I'd say they're mock-ups. You can see where the one on the left has had a second label applied over an old one.

Is it just the resolution plus my old eyes, or is the handwriting almost the same? Good job of forgery (Keep at it, Brian!) or a print out from the original images? :P

Are these:

... supposed to be the actual disks? Or are they a mock-up done by someone here?

The reason I ask is that they look different from the ones on DuneNovels, which are supposed to also be the real disks.

Pictured here for convenience:

Just wondering.

The above link for dumbnovels takes you to a page with not only the pics but official statements from Kevin and Brian they are not in this for the money.

At the bottom of the page, is a tip jar...

When I write, I don't really label things "outline" or "notes". Seems to me they just added those to say "We have notes and an outline."

I think you all have sufficiently summarized it--ITS ALL BULLSHIT. Every last stinking lie. They want $$$$$$ and will stop at nothing to get it. Byron, Brian, KJA, all of the bastards.

Screw 'em, I say. I still do my part. I trash them every chance I get. I talk my friends out of buying or reading any of these stinkers. I'm always directing people to Chigger's blog so they can get a heapin' helpin' of KJA trashing :D

I refused to read Pail of Dung, and I am not reading this new steamer either.

Nice to hear from you, B ! :)

Ah, Microprose. I have a lot of good memories of that gaming company. X-COM UFO Defense, Master of Orion and Master of Orion II, Master of Magic....plenty of time spent playing those games :)

It was discussed inn an older thread is that the outline or disks that were found ( :wink: ) may well have been what Frank had been working on with McNeilly. (If the nudune books have any connection to the previous duniverse, it's to the Dune Encyclopedia otherwise all Star Wars and Hubbard stuff.)

For the new members, McNeilly had many conversations with Frank Herbert about a prequel book and later had even submitted a sample chapter to Brian, who completely blew off McNeilly, only to sick the HLP lawyers on him and later get him to make a statement disavowing the DE when he is dying from cancer. Classy...

There was a book published on Frank and his books shortly before he died, and in that book is a quote Frank Herbert states that he was working on a Dune prequel (even though Brian had stated that it was not true, but FH had told Brian personally he wanted to do the book only with his son someday in the future).

I've mentioned this before, but shouldn't McNelly's sample chapter and outline for his proposed Butlerian Jihad novel still be in the university?


He had stated he would never make his sample chapter public, this was after describing the HLP lawyers as blood suckers.
This is from a long time friend of Frank Herbert and the man who help create a university archive to protect his legacy.

Can we... steal it? To compare his, FH-appoved outline of the BJ, to the "official" one? Or would that just be disrespecting McNelly's wishes?


Nothing illegal is condoned by Jacurutu.

Well, yeah. I wasn't serious about that; I meant "go there and look at it".


Ill talk to the Fullerton special collections librarian the next time I am there. Maybe she can help.

With some time passed, any idea when you're likely to be taking a visit there?

Gonna be a while. I settled all of my So.Cal. cases, but Ive been trying to take a mediation or something from a coworker who works down there more than I so I can justify a trip. Ive also got family down there and have been contemplating a family road trip, and Ragabash's friend moved there and hes a big Herbert fan. There are some options, but nothing'll work for a while probably.
