    New McDune? (TBA January)

    Postby Apjak » 09 Dec 2012 10:14

    I don't think the author should make the reader do that much work - Kevin J. Anderson
    We think we've updated 'Dune' for a modern readership without dumbing it down.- Brian Herbert
    There’s an unwritten compact between you and the reader. If someone enters a bookstore and sets down hard earned money(energy) for your book, you owe that person some entertainment and as much more as you can give. - Frank Herbert

    I see they are still using the ass of Dune pic to attract the dregs of society.

    I see they already put the purchase button...
    no release date but they're ready to milk it.
    Not even a pre order for the sake of decency.

    Shuffled through my desk and found one of my unused moleskines and set a pen next to it.

    Ready.

    Man, I had forgotten how much I love it around here when one of these DuneTM logs comes out of Tor's orifice! Maybe Chig'll even make an appearance.

    Leto II is gone for good, except for OM. The "pearl" was just that; a miniscule portion of what Leto was, and not a compressed version of the whole. The pearl that the worms have do not make them Leto, or in any way similar to him.

    wow....no pic, no title... just SOMETHING January 2013

    I thought KJA was busy with the map of the world series (or whatever the frak it is), HellHole.. and he was going to do something with his 7 suns series ( a shadow version or a zombie Apocalypse version or something) Honestly haven't been paying attention of late.

    Still vigilant to see him and BH drummed out of the literary world for there McDune crimes, but lurking of late.

    Keith's already published 147 of the Zombie Dick novels this year ....

    what's interesting about this is that either Merritt doesn't know
    the next McDune is "Mentats", or they didn't tell him, or he can't
    read the internet, OR even Merritt himself has quit caring ....

    from the blog that shall not be named;
    The Year-End Productivity Roundup
    Posted By Kevin J. Anderson on December 17, 2012


    "Another good year, and I’ve already got a lot of irons in the fire for 2013, with the first
    new release UNNATURAL ACTS (Dan Shamble, Zombie, PI), due out in January."



    "And, for a special treat—zombie flesh tastes funny. Want a free sample?"


    "I ended up writing 220,000 words—over 900 draft pages—in 47 days. My personal best."


    I could swear I saw something here about how 14evin was 'editing' "mentos, the Dune maker"
    with the book going to print next month. Ready or not.
    Leto II is gone for good, except for OM. The "pearl" was just that; a miniscule portion of what Leto was, and not a compressed version of the whole. The pearl that the worms have do not make them Leto, or in any way similar to him.

    It's alright, I imagine he'll edit it down into a stream-lined, tight, well-paced 300 page novel...

    ..ahahahahah.. no, it's finished now. Just correct some of the transcription errors and it's ready.
