Hardcovers of Dune Messiah and Children of Dune

Postby Phaedrus » 09 Jul 2008 14:30

This may be the wrong forum for this, but has anyone noticed that these books are in bookstores? (Has the "Dune" blog mentioned anything about them?)

I put this topic here because the biggest thing of interest is that both books contain content by Brian Herbert. I read over his introductions to these books, and the big point is that Brian just doesn't get it. It's been a while since I read them, and I didn't memorize them, but one of the intros(CoD, I believe) is basically about how Brian was introduced to Dune by someone else who thought it was amazing. The lesser Herbert didn't even care that his father had written a book, and couldn't believe that people actually liked it.

Biggest Dune fan evar. EVAR!!!

Paul of Dune was so bad it gave me a seizure that dislocated both of my shoulders and prolapsed my anus.

In memory of Perach, who suffered and died needlessly.

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

If I can get from a used bookstore, I'll pick them up :)

The HLP has become my new Metallica: never buy anything from them via direct sales :)

I'm glad I just have the first editions of those (and paperbacks from before the dark days of the prequels).

I will have to look at those new hardcovers, and then mutilate the non-Frank portions! :twisted:
