Hello

Postby Ash » 17 Feb 2010 14:30

Hello everyone,

I read Dune when I was 13 and have been hooked ever since. I have read and collected just about everything Frank has written. Dune has been a major influence in my life.
But all of those good feelings changed when KJA came to town.

I remember reading the announcements about the Dune 7 notes and outline. I was beside myself with joy. I talked several coworkers / friends into reading the Dune books. I even defended the new books up until Battle of Corrin. Once that book hit the shelves I couldn’t take it anymore.

I’m convinced that they (KJA and Brian) have never read Dune or any of Frank’s books. There is no consistency, no fidelity, and no respect to the original material. Each and every one of the new books are an abomination to the legacy of Frank Herbert.

I can’t undo what they have done. So I’m just going to talking about what I love with other like minded people. And try not to get too worked up over the alternate universe books that have been published recently.

Thanks for your time.
"Dune can be read on so many different levels. I really get different things out of it every time I read it. You can read it as just a plain old space adventure story, people being stranded on a desert planet that has giant sandworms on it, but you can also read it and get politics and economics out of it."

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

Maybe, but it's probably better than a sand chiggar.

welcome friend, to Jacurutu home of the Orthodox Herbertarians!

Drawn here by the junk the Frankenhack came up with, you'll see that Preequel bashing is good therapy, with the occasional smart discussion.
Dune should have been left alone, rather than made into a mockery...
Now the harm is done, we will never forgive and never forget!
