    I think he may be even more obsessed with Dune than we are, lol. Good read so far!

    Im pretty sure it was t his thread, but I recalled some responses. I traded a few messages with this guy and he gave me permission to archive his entire site at the FH secondary sources page. Nice guy. I recall he said that he was trying to find a publisher but never could, so he just put it up and started working on other pieces he had in mind.

    Wasnt aware of this, started reading, pretty interesting stuff. I am into chapter two of it. Would the author be able to publish without the consent of the HLP I wonder? or did he seek their approval also and just couldnt find a publisher?

    Strangely Ironic, that a would-be author writing about Frank Herbert and his works who cant find a publisher:)

    Working through the first chapter after the Prelude now. I can understand why he hasn't had success publishing it, but I'll hold my opinion for when I'm entirely done. It may pick up steam at some point, though the information provided is a page-turner regardless of the way it's presented.
