What a tool. Someone should send him a link to this thread and see if he'll come give us his "thoughts."

Oh, gawd, do we really want him joining up here? :shock:

That's like somebody challenging arnoloco to come to Jacurutu and debate. (Who was it, Lundse?)

Been there, done that, don't need that tired shit back. :twisted:

Pretty neat discussion by folks like us in the second part of the article.

I wonder how many potential Dune fans are scared away after reading just one of the atrocities? Would you start reading the original after having read, lets say, Butlerian Jihad? Wouldn't you be revolted by it so much that you would never ever touch a book with Dune printed on it again?...


And here is where we, Frank Herbert readers, must intervene, talk, explain to family and friends that they must read one of the monuments of Science Fiction that is Dune and its 5 sequel novels, explain them that unfortunately there is a HLP estate that has authorized new novels of a questionable quality and non consistent with Frank Herbet's work.

I'm doing this!
Only the books written by Frank Herbert are canon.

I hate that kid.

Is he really a kid, and not 42?

I'm confoosed. :?


that guy's obviously a jackass. He can't remember Phillip K Dicks best work, pretty much calls the Midwich Cuckoos quaint (my bloody is boiling at this point), misses the entire plot of Dune, and, to top it all off, slags off what is renowned as one of the best sci-fi's since Dune, Neuromancer. any have his address? my knife and bare hands want a word with him.... :twisted:

I was hunting for a Dune quote when I ran across this site http://www.godofbiscuits.com/blog/archi ... -dune.html which made me remember this thread! It's just a blog by someone who loved the original novels. He writes about some of the quotes he liked, it was a nice read.. thought y'all might like it.
