does writing in the Dune and Superman universe's make you believe you have prescience and that your faster than a speeding bullet?

Those might be put to the test at the convention.

These have already been asked.

1.) Kevin, do you do all the writing while Brian lends his name to the books to boost sales?

2.) Will the Fedaykin build a super-Death Star to destroy the nonbelievers in "Paul of Dune?"

3.) Will you include Omnius, Erasmus, and the Normacle in the Heroes of Dune books, because we know FH had intended to include them in Dune 7, right?

4.) Are you going to introduce Kryptonians and Jedi in a cross-over Dune novel?

Who would win in this fight? Superman, The Death Star, Omnius, Leto II, the Sun Crusher ,and Batman? And No Normacle can't help. (Clear choice, Duh, Batman.)

Have you received a response from Rowling about your Harry Potter prequels? Are you concerned that your suggesting that Harry was actually 17 and lied about his age to get into Hogwarts will annoy some diehard tween talifans?

I can't speak for the present day, as I haven't read the books in a really long time, but when I first did (I was much younger), I actually really liked the sun crusher idea. I used to have debates with my friends at school what would win a battle, the Midway from Wing Commander (which I was not familiar with) or the sun crusher?

I only now realize though that it is another example of Anderson trying to one-up people :wink: I still have a fond memory of that series though.

Is the Sun Crusher a Star Wars thing, or is it from his Asses of Worlds series?

(Star Wars, I believe. Although I'm sure there are plenty of similar horrors in the Saggy Sons.)

Question:

Kevin, of all the literary corpses and franchises you've shtupped over the years, which had the smoothest poop chute?

And, who's the loudest screamer in the HLP? Brian? Byron? Yourself?

Yeah. The sun-crusher was one of the first times he tried to out-do the universe in which he was writing. The Death Star can blow up a planet? Yeah, well, the SUNCRUSHER can blow up a sun! :roll:

Even better: it could blow up a Sun and as such cause a chain reaction that would blow up all the other planets in the solar system.

Good ol' KJA :wink:

That's...just so stupid and unnecessary. :roll:

The flash and blast wave from the explosion should be enough to demolish any planets, no?

Ugh.

Don't forget that its armor was soooo amazingly ultra (and with a scientiferiffic explination!) that the Sun Crusher could survive the explosion of the sun. It even got hit by the death Star laser and smashed through the bridge of a Star Destroyer! Its creator was a pacifist who didnt think the Empire wanted a sun-blower upper torpedo for military use. She worked at a super-secret like uber secret i mean ultra secret facility sooo awesomely secret that even the emperor himself didn't know about it. Kinda like saying Hitler knew nothing about the Concentration Camps.

Again, logic always loses in KJA's World.

I mean this is the guy who claimed that making a Super Star Destroyer almost bankrupted the Empire. (Orly how about the fact that losing the first Death Star was such a financial setback that the Emperor wasted all of about 2 seconds before ordering a new one.) Yet somehow the Hutt crime lords could scrap together the cash to build a Death Star Super-laser...and for some reason they decided to make it look like a lightsaber. Its like the Mafia outfitting all their goons with personal laser guns that look like the Lone Ranger's pistol.


And if that doesn't get you he also created Waterworms, Ultraspice, cloaking BG's and Off-World Stillsuits that are better than Fremen ones.

'cause he's KJA babee and your gonna have to swallow whatever comes out of his canon! Right after I dictate this hike! (I just had a sick image in my head that he actually talks to his wife this way. <shiver>)

Wow, that sounds bad. The KJA School of Writing: make it bigger, more powerful, or just more awesome!

I don't do Star Wars extended universe stuff (well, I read that Han Solo series by Brian Daley, but that goes way back), but I can't help wondering: does KJA get ripped by fans who do follow the Star Wars setting religiously? I'd imagine that any fans above the age of 12 and/or able to think for themselves are just completely insulted by the idea of "Ultra Death Stars" and that sort of thing. Much like what we discuss here, it sounds like bad fanfic.

I would like to know that too.

I think some1 said about that over DN, but the discussion didnt evolved.

It would be nice if we discovery that George Lucas people had already hearded the old Star Wars fan and banished all the KJA word from the EU. What I see is the fans of Star wars are more respected than we like to be. Because George Lucas know that the "force" of Star wars is in the old and loyal fans, who buy the books, games, toys, dvds,....
The singular multiplicity of this universe draws my deepest attention. It is a thing of ultimate beauty.

You can find fans from all the universes KJA has destroyed maligning him on the internet.

Look, KJA is a "Star Wars Chick":

Here's a topic called "Which part of your life did Kevin J. Anderson rape?"

http://forum.spacebattles.com/showthrea ... ost3678781

Don't we know Carion?

I hate Kevin J. Anderson.

I know it's silly to hate someone you've never even met, someone who you know only as an author.

But I genuinely hate Kevin J. Anderson. There are seven different kinds of hatred, but the burning hatred I feel for that retarded inbred crack baby that calls himself Kevin J. Anderson is all-encompassing. It burns through everything, it's so potent it could swallow up an entire universe when unleashed.

Kevin J. Anderson killed Dune.

He took one of the classics, and squeezed it dry.

The man has no real talent, he's an ugly person, on the outside as well as on the inside. If he died today I'd be a happy man, because it would mean that he would never ever be able to write anything titled "Dune" ever again. If he actually dropped dead today, I would travel to the States just to spit on his grave, I would get a shovel, dig up his corpse and piss on it, like he pissed on Frank Herbert's corpse, good name, and his masterpiece.

I would go out and feed the homeless, I'd adopt seven orphans, I'd devote my life to making the world a better place, but with Kevin J. Anderson roaming the earth, raping and pillaging works of art, I feel no need to do anything commendable.

Paul of Dune

I swear I will boycott that shitty novel the moment it comes out. I will get my name in my local newspaper by being the enigmatic philantropist who has taken it on himself to rid the world of that hateful creature's writings by burning his books in a bonfire of glorious destruction.

Someone should notify the Middle East, tell them that Kevin J. Anderson hates muslims and islam. Not that far fetched if you've read his Dune novels... because Kevin J. Anderson hates people!


Why was this topic even started? We already know KJA sucks, and do not need another round of "KJA sucks!"
