The deeper meanings of FH's works are no secret.
I spent many an hour reading and discussing the finer points of the original series. The golden path, the "4 deaths", the pearls of awareness, the "missionaria project", the "ghola project", and so on. The old DOD site was a haven for learning and imagining what FH was really thinking in the original series.
Freak was there. He remembers the rich discussion, the theories, the wonder that FH created in the Duniverse.
What will forever piss me off, is that neither Brian Herbert nor Kevin Anderson cared enough to spend the time to understand where the old man was really going in Dune 7.
Call it lazy, arrogant, stupid, whatever. The mockery that P&B made of Dune is unforgivable to me.
Byron, when you next see Brian, ask him this. Is it really worth it?
And Byron, ask yourself the same question before you issue another "internet abuse" complaint against a FH fan. Paying the bills and sending your kids to college from the HLP profits is great, just make sure to teach your kids about FH's "noble purpose" concept. In this case, not by example obviously.
