I once got this message from an old sci fi forum a few years ago by a guy called Lort (Troll backwards?) because the majority of people were talking shit about KJA and BH’s McDune. Aparently he sent it to everyone.
This is what Lort wrote:
You guys are f**king assholes. Kevin and Brian are amazing authors, better than any of your f**king retards will ever be. How dare you criticize their work? The new Dune books are at least equal, if not better than the originals. They contain clarity which can actually be followed and understood! Kevin has written hundreds of books, what have you guys done? Brian is the son of Herbert so what makes you guys think you have more authority over him regarding Dune?
Now bear in mind, I think this guy is a troll. But if he is serious, jeez. I’m not sure what “They contain clarity which can actually be followed and understood!” mean but I imagine it is a reference to KJA’s juvenile simple writing style which lacks any subtlety or allusion.
Since when did you have to be a bestselling author to have an opinion on a book? I mean how many movies has Roger Egbert produced?
Yes Brian is the son of Frank and maybe he had more of an insight into Frank on a personal basis but it is clear from his writing that he doesn’t have any insight into Frank’s writing.
KJA has written hundreds of books? That’s because he is a pulp hack. He is only a best seller because of the volume he produces. It is about quality not quantity. Walter M Miller Jr only wrote one novel in his lifetime. That doesn’t mean he is a bad author (quite the contrary).
I would send you guy’s the link, but the site no longer exists. It shut down a year ago for some reason I don’t know why. I pasted this guys comment into a word document, probably just to record his stupidity out of disbelief.
