If the son and Anderson have messed up the Dune timeline then I'm not surprised at all. I can't remember any parts of their books that "felt" right or even uncontrary. It all felt very Hercules/Xena low-budget, if you know what I mean. I don't think Brian has yet earned the right to continue his father's work, harsh as that sounds. I haven't read the finale and I never will, as I consider the work of the son and Anderson to be inferior fan-fiction. Hope that doesn't sound too awful.

:clap: :clap: :clap:

(I especially loved the "...or even uncontrary" phrase. :lol: Puts it perfectly! )

It's not harsh or awful at all: Brian had (has?) a really strong sibling rivalry with his father's Dune books. (How messed up is that? He's lived most of his life jealous of a bunch of books!) He didn't even really read Dune until late in life. (And he loaned out his signed copy of the book and has (had?) a request posted on the Dune Novels webshite asking for its return. :doh: )

The Herberts & Merritts have made the mistake of thinking that owning the copyright to the books earned them the right to continue the series. Legally, no one can stop them. But it appears that the moral verdict rendered by the court of public opinion is going to be different, judging from the continuing lagging sales of their books. :D
I have heard of only one mistake that doesn’t have an explanation for a careful reader...with an open mind. (And, no, I’m not going to tell you what it is!) —KJA

I don't like every writer's style; for instance, I have never been able to get through Ursula LeGuin, China Mieville, or Iain Banks, all of whom are critical darlings. —KJA

I...had written a bunch of Star Wars and X-Files books...that proved not just that I'm a hack, but that I could write in somebody else's universe... —KJA

Thanks. =D They're part of history now. Not in a good way. Clap. Clap. Clap. Enjoy your rape profit, blights. ;/ Nice to know I can be open about my hatred for the disrespectful son here.

Now you can go fuck yourself and the next guy and save me the drama of this whole thing.

Same. Love this forum. It's a fountain of knowledge and everything I know about arsey forum people is being contradicted at every step. Except maybe the dude here that wants me to have sex with "the next guy" which I'm quite looking forward to doing.

It's the place where they roast pigs in underground fires. Kinda round looking brown skinned folk, language seems to be almost entirely vowels... not sure what else to say really! :wink:

Knowing him, which I don't, it's unlikely. He's compulsive and not completely in control of himself.

Now I'm confused. Why doesn't he just not talk to me and shut the fuck up about it? Put me on ignore or something if you don't like it. See, you have all kinds of options :roll:
