    Don't worry, KJA will have it written by next week! :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

    Hey, SandRider! do yourself a favor and take some literature classes! :lol:

    Oh, and Jizzy Dam has finally shown up, with a surprisingly minimal post!

    more of a brick, than a wall, of text. :lol:

    By the way, correct me if I'm wrong, but weren't the Imperial Stormtroopers the bad guys in Star Wars? :think:


    Or were they just misunderstood? :laughing-rolling:

    Extreme Cyberfellator Shawn Speakman has posted a video of Brian's talk at the University bookstore in Seattle yesterday(?).

    Some interesting stuff in there about his purported working relationship with KJA.

    Lundse and Amp have taken the offensive in the discussion threads now.

    I can't be fucked bothering anymore.

    And I think "HeavySFReader" is a reference to her weight. Maybe she's one of the pizza snorfers? :think:

    GO TEAM KJASF! :lol:

    Mmm, what wonderful insight !

    Thank the heavens for that beaming light of wisdom, a revelation that is going to revolutionize how we view politics...

    It's not enough to want people to be happy, you have to make them happy.

    No wait that can't be it.

    Then again coming from someone who'd give four stars to a collection of pages put together by the creators of SadButUltraWorms what to expect...

    wait, I thought that was one of Chigger's blahgs ?
    are you saying you are not responsible for this ?
    are you saying that your long-time criticism of Harriett was NOT just jealous-haterism,
    but, in fact, an opinion shared by other actual people who are NOT your sock-puppets ?

    It is eighty-three years after the last of the thinking machines were destroyed in the Battle of Corrin, after Faykan Butler took the name of Corrino and established himself as the first Emperor of a new Imperium. Great changes are brewing that will shape and twist all of humankind.

    The war hero Vorian Atreides has turned his back on politics and Salusa Secundus. The descendants of Abulurd Harkonnen Griffen and Valya have sworn vengeance against Vor, blaming him for the downfall of their fortunes. Raquella Berto-Anirul has formed the Bene Gesserit School on the jungle planet Rossak as the first Reverend Mother. The descendants of Aurelius Venport and Norma Cenva have built Venport Holdings, using mutated, spice-saturated Navigators who fly precursors of Heighliners. Gilbertus Albans, the ward of the hated Erasmus, is teaching humans to become Mentats…and hiding an unbelievable secret.

    The Butlerian movement, rabidly opposed to all forms of “dangerous technology,” is led by Manford Torondo and his devoted Swordmaster, Anari Idaho. And it is this group, so many decades after the defeat of the thinking machines, which begins to sweep across the known universe in mobs, millions strong, destroying everything in its path.

    Every one of these characters, and all of these groups, will become enmeshed in the contest between Reason and Faith. All of them will be forced to choose sides in the inevitable crusade that could destroy humankind forever….


    And of course all these universe-altering events just happen to be occurring at the same time. :roll:

    Wow, the book's been out for a while now and there's four reviews on Amazon?!?

    It's like no one can even muster the energy to care any longer, and that includes DJ Dizzy Jam, Pestie, and the other hardcore preek retards.
