    Hello all..

    I'm not entirely sure how I stumbled on this gem of place. I was in a rage about the last book Sandworms written by Brian Damien (the omen) Herbert and found a topic on how utterly tosh it is after typing in various naughty words at Junior Herbert and his sidekick.

    Anyway..

    I love Dune. Quite a new comer to the Franks wonderful work. However, I purchased his sons books without really taking care to find out if they were up to his fathers standard and truthfully I did not expect them to be, however, I did not expect them to have the feel of been written by a gold fish.

    My name is Ed. I'm from the UK. 26 years old. Hurrah.

    Glad to be among you. Not in a creepy way stalker way. ^_^
    Some humans would do anything to see if it was possible to do it. If you put a large switch in some cave somewhere, with a sign on it saying "End-of-the-World Switch. PLEASE DO NOT TOUCH," the paint wouldn't even have time to dry.

    Hello Caveworm :)
    As an online discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison involving Hypatia approaches one.

    Achlan wasachlan! Welcome and welcome. :D

    Come on in, make yourself at home, but be careful not to sit on anything wet. Watch out for Ole Pa and the guy with the green tushie and you should be OK. ;)
    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
