I never read the short but I did like the book. Never even realized it was co-re-written. :?

This isn't exactly accurate. It's originally a very famous short story written by Asimov — arguably his best-known shorter work — that was later (much later) substantially re-written into novel length with collaboration from Robert Silverberg.

(Who should be writing nuDune novels, although that's a different subject ...)


yeah I should have been more precise but then I forgot/didn't know it was a short before, and I don't like to claim beforehand knowledge when I just read it on wiki or such :)

And check this out:

The first two "reviews" for this POS are from Byron Merritt. So, in addition to being a complete sell-out and a pussy, Byron is also a shill. That's quite a trifecta.

These HLP people have no shame at all. None.


Haha, very nice! That's almost ten years ago.

Luckily, I was able to thanks to Amazon.com and I read it this fall.

I personally feel that this message board, Jacurutu, is full of hateful folks who don't know
how to fully interact with people.

I liked "telepathy virus," too. What an amazing HACK he is.

how the fuck do you smuggle telepathy?
"in your mind's eye" maybe?

And Byron's review sounds more like brown nosing again...

anyway who cares as long as they stay away from dune...
but they don't do they?

Maybe the reviews on amazon should have their own truthsayer :)
