Outstanding, Lotek! Nice to get the freebie, too.

I've "restricted" myself to just one HC set and one PB set of the Dune series - all UK editions. Dune 1-4 PBs are the ones inhuien has in his sig. Dune 5-6 PBs are the same as the ones you just picked up :).

I'm still very proud of The Quarry but … let's face it; in the end the real best way to sign off would have been with a great big rollicking Culture novel.

the ebay guy from whom I got the books has found the missing Dune Messiah copy and sent me an email to say he was adding it free of charge!
That's really cool I think, goes to show someone who read Dune and liked it knows the value of passing on these stories
I told him(which is the absolute truth)that after reading "that Anderson guy"'s stuff I needed to remind myself what Dune was all about.


bad news!
they haven't arrived yet :roll:


Fantastic!

Time is a strange thing you know, if you've had the books by now time would have passed like shit from a new born calv - but it'll pass as slow as a snail in reverse while you wait on them. Atleast you have something to look forward to! yay for that ^^

Was just a joke, I thought you'd get the Bill Hicks reference.
