Hello!

Hey, just joined obviously. Love Frank's books. God Emperor may be my favorite. Read them all 3 times and am in need of a refresher. The first few new books pissed me off and I haven't read anything after the Jihad. Found you all here via the Fish Speaker site.

I guess someone didn't get the message in that other thread. :roll:

Harq, just ignore him. Used to be every village had one, if you follow my meaning. ;)

After you poke them in the eye, lead them here. In fact, you can skip the eye poking. I'd like more preeks to come here.

They wouldn't even notice. I'll bet most of them listen to the audio books anyway.

That's why they don't come here, THEY CAN'T READ! :lol:

ZING!!! :lol:
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

Thanks all. Been enjoying reading your posts.

I didn't think that anyone really actually liked the bastardizations. I'm afraid of the new movie that's in the works.
