^^^You're optimistic. We've been shitting all over these things since the House series and they still sell to some degree or another. Never underestimate the power of putting

"DUNE" all over something and having it sell....

Nevertheless, I personally still strongly support the policy of giving them as much bad internet press as possible. Pail of Dung didn't do as well as they had hoped, so let's hope this one does even worse......

Yeah, I am being pretty optimistic, I realize. I just have to have faith that humanity -- which doesn't include KJA Special Forces fanboys -- will wake up and come to the realization that the new books aren't worthy of sitting on the same shelf as the originals.

I might have been a friend of Son21.

He was a man of few words, sparing in syllables. And as every keeper of the caches can attest, still waters... contain predator fish.

Would that he had stayed among us longer. :(

The spirit of Son21 and his sacrifice shall live on forever in our hearts; he died the literary death so that others may survive the insanity of the winds, some can make you go crazy if they blow for too long!

I think we should see if son21 in fact has more non-commercial speech to give us.
