Just for laughs:
The fact is the outline (which was only 34 pages) has been published in a completed form. As Hunters of DUNE and Sandworms of DUNE.
I have met Brian and Kevin on several occasions(as well as the rest of the Herbert Family) and it has been made VERY clear that they worked directly off FH's outline for the book.
They also used his notes for the creation of the other trilogy's (he was going to do the Butlerian Jihad with Brian before his death).
While Brian and Kevin's style dffers from Frank's the core story is the same he would have produced had he finished the series. I can't really understand the continuing accusations by fanboy's that they somehow made it all up.
I've probably read the original DUNE more times than this entire forum combined and have read each successive book upon it's release and I find no need for the notes to be published.
From a publishing standpoint there was enough challenge to get the complete DUNE books published (They switched publishers after the prequels) It would be virtually impossible to get a book of notes published.
Maybe just maybe if the Peter Berg Film is a HUGE success they might publish the notes as part of a larger DUNE history.
For those looking for more insight into Frank Herbert I would recommend DREAMER of DUNE which is one of the finest Biographies I've ever read.
Who is this asshole?
What a fucking arselicker (I mean Ray Feighery). Dunenovels is now the shittest site on the web, and it's Byron's fault.
