Falcor extends his greetings

Postby Falcor » 03 Jun 2009 08:52

Hello all,

I stumbled upon the forums and had to throw in my two cents about the Golden Path, for more on that feel free to check it out:

http://www.jacurutu.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=1136&start=30

And as per Freakzilla's request, I'm introducing myself. Currently, I'm reading Hunters of Dune and I've read the 6 FH originals. So far, I'm liking it, despite the warnings I've received that BH and KJA suck, but honestly, I realize that they may not be as eloquent as FH, but as long as I get the plot continuance, I believe I'll be happy, even if its bare-bones outlines of FH's original notes. I do think that getting our hands on those would be nice, if indeed they do exist and they're not all simply locked in BH's head from his own imagination mixed with the conversations with his father, pre-mortem. But in any case, I'm excited the series is moving forward, and thus far, I have no complaints.

Anywho, I'm looking forward to great discussions with you guys!

Thank you! And welcome to my humble sietch. An eagle will be sacraficed tonight.

Currently, I'm reading Hunters of Dune and I've read the 6 FH originals. So far, I'm liking it, despite the warnings I've received that BH and KJA suck, but honestly, I realize that they may not be as eloquent as FH, but as long as I get the plot continuance, I believe I'll be happy, even if its bare-bones outlines of FH's original notes.


I thought it was OK until they revealled who Marty and Daniel are in the last few chapters and I threw down the book in disgust, vowing vendetta. It is even more disgusting if you have read the Legends of Dune series. The coming plot twist is so obvious you don't want to believe it. When it came, I asked for my money back.

I do think that getting our hands on those would be nice, if indeed they do exist and they're not all simply locked in BH's head from his own imagination mixed with the conversations with his father, pre-mortem. But in any case, I'm excited the series is moving forward, and thus far, I have no complaints.

Anywho, I'm looking forward to great discussions with you guys!

You'll not find a more informed group of Dune fans anywhere. BH & KJA toddle where we stride.

Enjoy!

Welcome to the board.

Hi Falcor.
As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Hypatia approaches one.

I personally feel that this message board, Jacurutu, is full of hateful folks who don't know
how to fully interact with people.

Achlan wasachlan fii sietchnaaaaaa!

Actually, I think I said welcome in another thread, so this would be doubly and triply welcome. :)


(Personally, I'm more interested in the conversations Brian has had with his father post-mortem. Knowharramean? ;) )
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

Hello and Welcome. Hope your shots are up to date. :mrgreen:

I think you might find one or two persons (or 3 or 4 or 5 or.......) around here who are capable of answering Dune related question.

Any one of us probably knows FH's Dune better than Pinky & The Brian.

Heh, why does she look Canadian? :P

Well, she is of French descent, last name's Gullette. As for Canadian, sadly no, though many a time during the reign of the God Emperor Bush II she vowed to escape to Canada as an Atheist refugee seeking solace for religious persecution. :P
