Hello. I've been searching for a Dune forum to discuss topics pertaining to the greatest series of all time (let's pray that the evil duo running the Herbert Estate doesn't blast the honorable Frank out of sight with their doggerel) and generally all i could turn up were vacant boards that had not been updated since, gee, 2003(interestingly paralleling the release of the miniseries). But thank Shai-hulud I finally found you, Jacurutu.

I will throw in a couple of essentials about reverendmotherQ.
:: I consider myself preborn(not literally) partially due to the fact that at 19 most of my peers are dumb as frak and none of them read Dune.
:: I am in my second semester of college and in keeping with my tradition of reading Dune every year I thought I would add on forum discussion to the custom to save me from insanity that is the campus nonsense.
:: Imma gonna let you finish, Kevin J. Anderson, but Frank Herbert was the best writer of ALL time.

Edit:: first read Dune when I was twelve and it was love at first read.

That is all.

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

So how did you find us?

Does it count as greed if you believe something is rightfully yours? That would be one way of having a 'greedy' Fremen, perhaps. :think:
