Contradicting the contradiction?

Postby Ghost » 26 Jan 2009 11:03

Heyas!

I was reading Road to Dune today, the short story ''Hunting Harkonnen''.
There it was said that Agamemmnon was the leader of the group that took down the Old Empire.
IIRC the leader was the Titan Tlaloc, is this correct?

Can they contradict theirselves? :lol:

Of course they contradict themselves:

- They say they are The Biggest Dune Fans..., yet they keep on raping Dune in every single 'novel' they 'write'.

- They say they have read all the original Dune novels and made a encyclopedia of Dune-facts. Yet......every single 'novel' they 'write' contains multiple factual errors.

- Remember when they told us Dune 7 would be the final Dune-novel? Yet they keep on 'writing' and writing and writing.........

In TBJ two otherwise normally inconsistent hacks wrote:Tlaloc vowed to dominate these outsiders one day, but after less than a decade in power, the visionary leader was killed in a tragic accident. General Agamemnon took Tlaloc's place as leader, but the death of his friend and mentor was a grim reminder of the Titans' own mortality.

And the same hacks also wrote:

DUNE: HUNTING HARKONNENS
A Tale of the Butlerian Jihad

... Stern, hard-line Ulf Harkonnen piloted the yacht, concentrating on the hazards of space and the constant threat of thinking machines....

The short story is obviously set much later. IIRC the Titans ruled 1,000 years before the totally implausible screw-up by one of them that resulted in the farce of Omnius and whatever.

Yes, they can be inconsistent with themselves. But this isn't one of those times.
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

I don't know, he seems to be pretty good with da lip service to ideas like impartial enforcement of his own rules, etc. ;)

Well, if being a fluffer doesn't work out you can be a jizz mopper.
