I have read some KJA, actually ... very little, but some. I struggled through part of Brian's Timeweb, but that's about it.
Picking the "better" writer is like picking the "better" venereal disease. I guess I'd say KJA only in the sense that he is a "professional" writer: he writes, he gets paid, and he knows how to get it done quickly.
Brian, OTOH, strikes me as living proof that not everything is passed down genetically. As I've made clear in many of my other posts, I don't think he does any
of the writing for these books. His job is to have the correct last name ... the HLP knows that sales of KJA-only "Dune" books would be one-fifth of their current level (at best) without "Herbert" somewhere on the cover.
"Anything I write will be remembered and listed in bibliographies on Dune for several hundred years ..." — some delusional halfwit troll.
