    Hello from the "Domstadt"

    Postby rygel » 16 Jul 2009 02:38

    Hello, just kept on lurking and forgot to introduce myself... well, here we go: I live in Germany, Cologne to be precise, and I am a 36 years old mathematician who loves "Dune" from his childhood onwards. I started by watching the Lynch movie and then jumped to the books immediatly. Somehow I was kinda excited when I heard that new books would be coming out, but this excitement vanished quite fast... but somehow it brought me back to re-reading and re-reading the books again. At the moment it's "God Emperor"... well, so much for now... you wanna learn more, just ask...

    Welcome, and before Trang can say it...

    "Your Water Is Ours."
    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

    Hi rygel, nice to meet you. I'm about to start rereading GEoD too.

    Using your quote as a representation for all the nice welcome posts above... thanks and, yes, I believe I already do like it here. So, I'll try and bring myself more into these discussions here. I have almost finished GEoD, but once I start HoD I'll get involved in the re-read portions of the forum.

    (Oh, and bear with me if my English sometimes is not that well, as it's just my second language)
