I think they're raping Dune for the fun of it, can't be they're in real need of cash anyway.

I say we kill them.
In memory of Perach, who suffered and died needlessly.

I wish I could have been with you that one last time.

Yes, I had. Insidious, isn't it? I fear we're witnessing the dumbing down of the original series.

I'm going to buy every new dune book and put them in a glass case, never to be read again.

They will be ostracized, torn apart from the rest... never to be savored, as an old friend, and never to be caressed by a trembling and expectant hand. They will be forgotten, not bygone books of a previous age, but unloved tomes that should never be opened... they cannot recieve the communion of our hands... they must instead be locked away, by rights only seen...

So after this Pail of Dung will be the sequel to Dune, not Dune Messiah. :roll:

That's right DIRECT SEQUEL. No more of that skipping years bullshit. What was FH thinking? :roll:

OH, WOULD YOU JUST GIVE IT UP ALREADY?! You...you...Canadian Spinster Porker and Toejam Licker!!!


:P
I have heard of only one mistake that doesn’t have an explanation for a careful reader...with an open mind. (And, no, I’m not going to tell you what it is!) —KJA

I don't like every writer's style; for instance, I have never been able to get through Ursula LeGuin, China Mieville, or Iain Banks, all of whom are critical darlings. —KJA

I...had written a bunch of Star Wars and X-Files books...that proved not just that I'm a hack, but that I could write in somebody else's universe... —KJA
