I didn't know the second one existed but it still fits the description.


I'm sure you've heard the second one and just forgot about it, it's pretty common in speach.

Of course, I meant to type the first, not the second!

Yup, that was perfectly done! :D

If you know I am going to make a mess of it if you don't help me, and do you really want that to happen? :mrgreen:

I told you through the medium of really really small text. All the best information is conveyed that way.



By being in really really small text this otherwise pointless sentence suddenly becomes worthwhile.

how did you know?
I have this:
keratocon: The keratocon is a pathology which occurs when the cornea, normally round and dome-shaped, thins and weakens in multiple points causing a progressive and significant distorsion of the image.

All posts are read and typed by my lawyer!

Thanks for the tip though :)

EDIT to add
That's so funny though I dunno how I didn't see it and I almost got pissed off at the blind fucker thing, and then I started using my brain again and things made sense once more :lol:

arnoldo's head is so far up the collective McDune asshole that he's actually chewing their food and doing their digestion for them now. :roll:

Curious - Sandchigger was wondering why Amazon UK had cover art while Amazon US - seems we now have the answer. Smellhole opens its orifice to the UK in October, the US is spared a full four months, not getting it until February next year. Is there precedent for this with former McDune novels, as it seems mighty strange to me?

Hellhole is off to a very slow start here in the states, not that you'll ever hear Keith admit it. The date slipping to February is a fairly new development, and also a bit of a strange one. After all, they've been done with it for weeks now (not that it took them more than a few days to "write" it in the first place, but whatever), so there appears to be no good reason to delay.

The best part: 2010 goes down as the year of not a single Spanky/Bobo release!

They want to see how it does overseas before they place their order for US hardback copies. It's a sign that they fear it will fail. They don't want to be left with a jillion remainders on their hands. If it tanks over there, Tor will do the minimum to comply with the contract they signed, and slash the marketing budget for the States.

I would bet good money that no one will give a shit about this book. Who's gonna read this bullshit? KJASF members? That's 25 copies...

I just popped over by Amazon UK and they've got a zoomable copy of the cover up now.

The line of copy under their names reads:

"A space opera to rival the best the field has ever seen. —SF Chronicles"

(snicker)

Yeah, but watch. kja will blame the publisher then for the shitty sales. It will never be his responsibility.

They don't put Keith's name first huh? They must still want it to be shelved by those DUNE books. I'd really like to see how this one would sell in the A's in the Young Adult Section.

Nobody is gonna read that bullshit. Don't they realize what a stupid title "Hellhole" is? It's kind of funny, if anything. Sounds like a fisting-themed nightclub, and it is one, apparently. Obviously, though, these two idiots think this is a very impressive title for an epic. They have a big problem mistaking the laughable for the epic, in all areas of their writing.
