Yo!

Postby ibanez_az » 03 Nov 2008 11:41

What's up ladies and gents? I've lurked for a long time and really enjoyed a lot of the comments about Tweedle De and Tweedle Dum.

I love good sci-fi and Frank's six Dune books are wonderful. What his son and the sausage maker "author" are doing to Dune is a freaking travesty.

I'm not too proud to admit that I occasionally enjoy Space Opera as a guilty pleasure, but not Dune as space opera. Maybe if it was good Space Opera I'd be a little more accepting of it...

Hellooooooo!!!!!!!!! Space opera can be good. The Lensman books are decent. CHarles Harness does not suck.

Welcome and hi. I like space opera as well ... especially well written space opera :wink:

Achlan wasachlan. Welcome and double welcome.
I have heard of only one mistake that doesn’t have an explanation for a careful reader...with an open mind. (And, no, I’m not going to tell you what it is!) —KJA

I don't like every writer's style; for instance, I have never been able to get through Ursula LeGuin, China Mieville, or Iain Banks, all of whom are critical darlings. —KJA

I...had written a bunch of Star Wars and X-Files books...that proved not just that I'm a hack, but that I could write in somebody else's universe... —KJA

About 8 years. 4 years a long time ago. Then I didn't play for a long, long time-long story. Then I started again about 4 years ago.

I play mainly blues and jazz now. The first time around I played rock and was in two bands. I'm not in a band now. Thank God for jam tracks!
