    Hello, hello!

    Postby lelek » 09 Dec 2009 01:50

    I'm Lexi - new to the forum, not at all new to Frank Herbert's universe. I've been a fan since I read Dune for the first time when I was 11 (I was kind of a precocious kid and stole my dad's books a lot) and I'm now in my 20s and just as in love with the series as ever. I made an attempt at reading the BH/KJA authorized sub-par fanfiction back when House Harkonnen first came out, but I only made it through the House trilogy before losing my patience with it.

    Nice to meet you all and I'm looking forward to perusing the forum properly!

    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
