True Story

Postby SandChigger » 30 Oct 2008 05:12

Yesterday being Wednesday was "Lunch at the French Place Day" but the colleague I always go with—let's call him Tex—had been called to a meeting from 12:30 and wasn't going to be able to go until 1:30 or so. Which was fine by me since I didn't have anything on for the afternoon. (Class or meeting wise, I mean. After having a few people walk in on me unexpectedly I've finally learned to keep my clothes on in the office. :P ) So I settled in to reply to some emails and see what my students had been doing on our class mailing list.

Short story long, Tex had been sent the meeting announcement by mistake and showed up in my office at about 12:40. HONGRY as a barr. But he had a seat and waited for me to finish and send the mail I was working on. I was just about done when he burst out laughing.

Looking over to find out what was so damned funny, I saw that he had picked up the copy of the US paperback version of Hunters, which just happened to be lying face down on my desk, and was reading the back cover.

"Shiiiiit," he drawled, and then started reading aloud, "'Hunters of Dune is based directly on Frank Herbert's final outline, which lay hidden in two safe-deposit boxes for a decade.' Ha ha...I ain't even no fan and I can tell that's bullshit! How stupid do they think people are?"

How stupid indeed.

Just what the fuck are you doing with a paperback edition of Hunters? You're not reading it are you?!

Exactly. I read PoD because I was interested in if the Hacks Twain had improved their writing and storytelling. Reading that piece of shit also allows me to say how much of a piece of shit it is when arguing with KJA/BH fans!

Oooooo now now, this might end up being in Jessica of Dune if you guys keep it up. I can see it now, Leto bends Jessica over and starts slapping her backside with none other than a copy of JESSICA OF DUNE!

Yeah! Add that to the torrid accounts of their uninhibited sexual encounters during that trip to the Caladan wilderness (they made mad monkey love, repeatedly, every chance they got, never realizing they were under the constant surveillance of the...primitives) that Alia remembers and mentions at the beginning of PoD...you know, the trip during which Paul was conceived...after little Victor was killed and Leto was so devastated...and Jessica could turn into one HAWT steamer! :lol:

Only the books written by Frank Herbert are canon.

You know, there are times when I wish that Frank had stopped with "Dune." However, I have enjoyed the other five books, which are all much better than Combover and That Other Guy's efforts.

For me the story stops at the end of GEoD. It could actually stop at the end of CoD and GEoD is just details.

The events in HoD and CH:D have no effect, CANNOT HAVE, an effect on the Golden Path.
