SciFi poll over at io9

Postby 13athroom » 15 Jan 2010 16:07

theres this poll over at io9 asking poll takers which sci-fi property they would prefer to take over.

Its strange seeing someone outside of here talking down on Brian Herbert and using terms like ORTHODOX HERBERTARIAN.

I personally feel that this message board, Jacurutu, is full of hateful folks who don't know
how to fully interact with people.

We all complain every time Brian Herbert or Eoin Colfer takes over a beloved book saga.

Um ... Brian Herbert?

How fucking stupid. It's THE HACK KEVIN J. ANDERSON who's the franchisebutt pirate. Herbert has just fucked his father's cor...um, Dune legacy (so far).

Who's the moron writer on this one? :roll:

Those people over at i09 are morons. Every once in a while someone gets it right. But most of their shit skims the surface.
