I'm the poor sad sap who was pulled from Dunenovels a few weeks back like Keanu Reeves getting his head unplugged in the Matrix (minus the pink slimebath chamber)
I'm still less than halfway through the first book. So I'm a newcomer to all things Dune.
I would say I'm a very casual sci fi fan. Grew up enjoying Star Wars (the first 3 at least!) and I also enjoyed Tolkien's LOTR/Hobbit material, and the new Battlestar Galactica series is my guilty pleasure
However, I'm more interested in the philosophical/psychogical/religious undertones of the Dune saga. I've been practicing Zen meditation for a few years now (still very much a novice... at best) and I enjoy studying Buddhist philosophy. There seem to be many intriguing links to Buddhist thought in universe of Dune. I can't wait to explore more.
