dune fan since 1995 after watching the david lynch film and reading the first novel in paperback.
favorite book is god emperor, hands-down and there are few books written in any genre that compare, IMO.
ive read all the prequels, stopping at the newest "heroes" books and am quite aware of the major differences.
im also formerly of the KJASF group. i joined up hoping to discuss the books more and get more insight as to
why the newer books were written as they were. i just didnt understand the lack of character development and
the endless 3rd person narrative of every single nuance. that group really is just a street team for KJA and his other non-dune projects.
im not into being a free publicity engine for anyone, despite any "rewards" showered upon me.
ive never been a KJA fan because i didnt know who he was before the prequels, so i dont have any bias or emotional attachment.
ive always made the allowance that he is nothing close to FH, so i never really looked at the details of the books, just the story.
i like the prequels. very much like how pee-wee liked dotty. i just dont want to dig too much into all those inconsistencies because i dont
have many sci fi loves left that havent been wrecked to shit by greedy people. its just easier for me to turn a blind eye to most of it
than to become bitter.
BTW--im not a mole for that group, nor am megaphone for KJA. he has plenty of other fans to do that.
also, if anyone has questions concerning KJASF, id be happy to oblige.
sandchigger/RC has called out my reviews on amazon for the most obvious reasons and i respect his passion for FHs works and the need to call
out obvious issues with canon and consistency. i am also more than happy to discuss my intentions regarding those reviews as well. i must also
applaud his fine work in angering so many people who insist on being "nice" all the time. i am an avid fan of making people angry.
ive joined this group to hear/read others' critical analysis of the new vs old. im not here to bash KJA. my interactions with him have been
positive and i dont have anything negative to say about him personally. that being said, i have no objection to criticizing his writing or his
no, my shift key is not broken.
