    Oh you mean like someone capable of independent and artistic creation? Someone who can write characters in MORE THAN ONE DIMENSION!

    Careful, if kja reads this he's going to start writing about Paul running off to other dimensions as a youngster.

I hope never to read the book in which that happened and so I'll ask again: Was McPaul a full-on circus performer or more of a carny/associate? Thanks in advance for any response.

    Carny/associate. The actual performers are all face-dancers. But McPaul (liking that a lot, by the way! :lol: ) learned everything he knew about influencing crowds from the Jongleur master, Rheinvar the Magnificunt. ;)

    You know, 'cause it had nothing to do with the BG & Mentat training he received from Jessica & Thufir. :roll:
    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

    Sandworm duels, McPaul joining the circus, an Ultimate Kwisatz Haderach, the Golden Path a failure... my head truly aches at what the Hacks Twain have done to Dune.
