Not sure how anyone feels about me linking to another discussion forum, but I came across a Reddit thread entitled "Have you ever been so frustrated at a book that you threw it across the room?" Two out of the three top responses name the KJA/Brian Dune books :D

https://www.reddit.com/r/books/comments ... book_that/

One of the replies simply names the books as Abomination of Dune, a goodly title.

Thanks for the link. I call them "Atrocities of Dune" or "The Atrocities" for short, and I am doubtful about using the capital A.

When I tried to read the first of the Brian Herbert Dune prequels. The only way I managed to make it through the book was by the expedient of throwing it across the room once per page to work out my anger at how terrible it was.

Brian Herbert really has just coasted on the corpse of his father for all his life.

I remember that thread. I was pleased to see it as well, since quite a few times coming across a recommendation of Dune it is followed by a recommendation of the prequels/sequels. :(
