yeah, the bloom's off the rose for me, too. Y'all been dealing with That Asshole for quite awhile; I felt like I was playing catch-up .....well, I'm caught up. I guess the one thing that kept me interested was the SHEER GALL. I keep reading stuff, shaking my head - how can he write such things ? All three of them really, how can they say some of the things they say and seem to mean it ?
Look, here's Brian on g-damazon.com, 2004:
Amazon.com: Would Frank Herbert have enjoyed the prequels?
Herbert: It's not as good as Frank Herbert writing the story, but it's as good as anyone can do right now. We're not going to milk this. We're not going to carry on too far. We still feel the great passion, the great energy for the story.
then there's this, "Dwight Steven Pavlovic" from Fed2K (that's DuneNewt, right Chig ?)
email-interviewing That Asshole, 2003 - and this is still posted Over There:
Would you perhaps advocate the renewed production of Dune action figures and game boards?
I'm not sure I would. We (the family) don't want Dune to be another Star Wars-style monopoly. We want Dune to set new standards, not hash over old ones. But anything is possible. We look at each proposal carefully to see if it meets the standards for the Dune universe.
like gummi sandworms ?
oh, shut up, Byron ......
