A new frog in the place ...

Postby ᴶᵛᵀᴬ » 21 Mar 2009 18:30

Subah al Noor ! Hi everyone ! :D


How rude am I ? :oops: didn't see this thread till today. Long time lurker, 2nd time poster. I have discovered this forum thanks to Sandchigger :wink: ...and the great list of Dune secondary sources by Omphalos (in Worms Sci fi Haven Forum).


Some of you may know me from Facebook or Myspace...& for those of you who don't, I enjoy SF, Hard Rock, Monty Python's, Kafka, Orwell, Lynch, Nietzsche, Thoreau, Borat ! ... :crazy:


....AND DUNE of course !!! I'm a Dunalcoholic talifan, and I'm proud to be ! :crazy:

:FH small: As David Miller said, Herbert is certainly "an author who follows the same metaphysical questions in sequential books". He investigates and re-explores a whole gallery of topics, approaching them from different perspectives and in various permutations.

That's why I'm a great fan of all herbertian stuff (novels, short stories, poems, articles, scripts, audio-books...)...and many apocryphas (McNelly, Lynch, Jodo, Schoenherr, Iron Maiden, Giger...)...


Me and some herbertians froggies are involved in many projects :
* a french -annotated- translation of the DE (almost finished) ,
* a computer Concordance of the FH's Hexalogy (with stats, synopsis and lexicography - project in progress) ,
* a bilingual bibliographic database of FH's works and Duniverse (with quotes, links, images, reviews and analysis - project in progress, 1st lists on The Almost Undeleted),
* an interactive (multimedia) quiz (plans),
* some sociological studies (about fandom, SF writing, cyberculture, game design, virtual communities, "xeno-encyclopedia"...: plans again, some synopsis in progress)
Etc..Etc...Etc... Crazy, isn't it ? French....! :crazy: :crazy: :crazy:
It's just a beginning (except for the translation) and I hope share many ideas with you. :idea: :idea: :idea:


As Leto247 says :" I must warn you of one thing: if sometimes you see that what i´m saying doesn´t make sense you must not think it is due my almost-forgotten english notions. It sure will be an elaborated zensunni koan designed to open your mind !!!"


Very, very, very glad to be included among the ranks of Orthodox Herbertians. Looks like this is the new place to be. Nice to meet you all and I look forward to talking with you. :wink:


Obviously my water belongs to the tribe of the O.H.J. ! :tissue2: (french humour)

      Thanks a lot ! It's a beginning, very modest but we have faith on Orthodoxy ! Damn the Preeks ! Unfortunately, with the copyright stuff and HLP, you can't see nothing in public (hidden threads). You must register and apply for add (like the Sand's projects here).

      Thanks for your welcoming words ! :wink:
