God, that was a classic. Legendary epic fail.

I can still picture the email from TheKevin: "Byron, you dumbass: we're changing from one title to another totally different title! Don't make me fire you, peasant!"


For posterity:
Byron wrote:Hi all. FYI, there's a scheduled change in the titles of the upcoming new DUNE releases (as you can see from the change in this forum's title). Jessica of Dune is being changed to JESSICA TO THE WINDS OF DUNE. And Irulan of Dune will be changed to IRULAN TO THE THRONE OF DUNE.

My response two posts below:

Byron, you might want to check out kja's blog for the real title.


This is right up there with the upside down cover art. :D

If a joke falls in the forum, can you hear the sockpuppets laugh if no one but them is there to hear it?

That Asshole, SpicePussy and just plain Pussy ....

you know him as "The Almighty Moderator", the inexplicably dense administrator of the "official" Dune forum,
and now the TwitterVoice of Dune .....

Well met and welcome, continue to join in and grab a spice beer while your at it.

I guess chronological depends on where your standing. If you read them in Publish date order, then thats whole different story.

If you read them in the Order that TheJacket and FartBlocker want, then you have McDune and Canon. I have Wiffs of Dune, just havent brought myself to read it yet.

Wow, thats amazing you managed to read the doggerel but not become tainted by it while reading the original dune. I stopped after hunters and decided I'd rather kill myself than finish it. But then again I did start out by reading the original. lol. That probably has something to do with it.

I am relieved to read you had read Dune before you started your self-flagellation of reading the McDune crap as well.

I can assert that attentively reading the McDune prequels might prove to be a solidly verifiable technique for achieving a lifespan *briefer* than that of fresh-minted Second Looie stepping out of an APV in downtown Saigon, or even of a reader of Vogon Poetry; and I've even (half-seriously) joked about recommending them as a non-detectable, readily portable Last Resort for charter members of the Hemlock Society.

I offered to give my McDune books away and they mysteriously disappeared when I went to do so.

I'll probably be giving my McDunes to the good will or something like that.

I put them in a box of stuff my wife is taking to her parent's garage sale, so we'll see where that goes.
