    I'm stoked. First thing we need is people reading Chapterhouse and Heretics. The last book I read was GEoD so I'll try to get on that ASAP.

    I think it's highly unlikely we'll find much information in GEoD (aside from maybe the odd tiny tidbit) and it's almost certain that we'll find 100% nothing in the first 3 books.

    It could be worth while going over DM for content re Bene Tleilax, It really is 20 years since I read CoD are they mentioned in that at a ll?

    I was going to start a consensus poll for something like: Consensus: Gholas of Paul, Chani will be created.

    I didn't see the option to create a poll in this forum though.

    Agreed. Frankly, I find them largely irrelevant. Not to belittle the efforts of those authors, but for us I think a blank slate would be healthier than trying to compare fan fiction.

    I agree - but I think Advent in the only one worth talking about

    one thread for it,and a combined for all the others ?

    I've also still not made it all the way thru Advent - I'm still not used to reading long things, like a novel, on the computer screen -
    I may have to take the file into my buddy who runs the printing shop his grandaddy started in the 20s - they printed the local paper
    for many years, alot of the equipment is still down in the basement - they were one of the first people in town to go to the digital
    printing things - before the franchise copy businesses got here; anyway, he prints all kinds of things for me really cheap, much
    cheaper than all the ink would cost me for my home printer - plus, I don't have a printer than can produce super high quality poster
    size prints for about a dime apiece - he's also real good with fonts and paper - I've taken him a .jpeg image of things likes forms and
    paperwork used by the Confederacy during The War, and he's chosen paper and set it up and produced a stack of the forms that are
    as close to authentic as you could get...

    but back to the topic:

    one of the reasons I thought of separate threads was for people who had read all these things to provide comments (and synopses)
    for those who haven't had the time or inclination to read them - If someone asked me what the main point of Advent was, I'd have to
    say I didn't know - I haven't read enough to figure just what usul is driving at ...

    also, in each thread, I'd like to see a compiled list of the "framework" of the independent author's vision of Dune7 ...
    and I think I like "independent author" over "fan fiction" ...

    seems like I made a rule here about a moratorium on McDune7 discussion -
    I was wrong about that ...

    reposted from "Finished Chapterhouse this Morning" thread:
    one of the dogs was having a chase-dream last night, rolled over and started clawing my face;
    after I got him awake and on the floor, I settled back down, and right before I drifted back to sleep,
    I thought I really should read McDune007 all the way thru - on the heels of that, I thought I should
    first re-read Heretics & Chapterhouse all the way thru, as novels; I don't think I've done that in a
    long, long time ....

    since I have not read the McDune007 in its' entirety, I've been out-of-the-loop on the thinking about
    what elements of the story could've possibly been Frank's, if any part of the "outline" tale is true ...

    I've become intrigued with the claim that Frank's primary idea for Dune7 somehow was "tied" to the
    Butlerian Jihad ... and I've been on the hate-wagon about Keith turning Marty & Daniel into transvestite
    robots, and the Duncan undoing the entire reason for Leto's Sacrifice .... and having been extremely
    quick (too quick, possibly) to dismiss anything the Hacks Twain have stated, ever, about anything,
    I've never given serious thought to the issue ...

    also, as I've stated before, I did not read the prequels and had little interest in them, altho I was aware
    of their existence from grocery store check-out lines and trolling for runaways at bus stations; I did not
    get involved in any of the internet discussions until both parts of the McDune007 were in paperback, &
    I purchased them together (at a grocery-store check-out), based solely on the "from Frank Herbert's
    Outline" blurb on the back cover .... so I was late to the speculation, anyway, and have not devoted
    any serious brain-energy to it ... mocking tehKJA and cyberbullying Innerwebz BlahgFiction Writers has
    occupied most of my time ...

    I am not seeing a good thread for how characters would go about thier goals? might be covered elsewhere, but one of the things in hunters that hurts is that they are trying to convert the HMs by the sword and that does not seem logical or very effective. I know Frank would probably only devote a paragraph to it but I see it being done way differently. slowly.

    Also, if there are any notes on Dune 7 from Frank Hebert, I get the feeling that the face dancer myriad, or something like it might have been something he thought of. There was something about Face Dancers being communal organisms.. maybe Daniel and Marty were just represenntatives of different factions, each one encompassing thousands of face dancers. maybe they wanted thier turn at playing shepard.
