    Princess Irulan wrote the greatest sci-fi novel of all time

    Postby merkin muffley » 23 Apr 2010 15:44

    Hello everybody. I tried to tell the other website the thing about Irulan, and they never activated my account. I was just trying to support the narrative presented in Paul of Dune, which is a steaming pile of sh*t.

    I love Dune. I like books in all different genres, but have never lost myself in a book like I did in Dune. I first read it in High School, and have read it at least once a year ever since. I also love the rest of the Dune novels, especially Dune Messiah and Children of Dune.

    I tried to give the prequels a chance, but found them to be unreadable. And then I was actually offended by Paul of Dune. I wouldn't have been able to keep my mouth shut on that other website. If that makes me a talifan, then I will accept that say: "Kevin J. Anderson should have his hands cut off!"

    Now that I've gotten that out of the way, I'm looking forward to participating in some conversations about Dune. :D

    It was smart to save yourself some time and just come here. There's tumbleweeds blowing through that place, anyhow.

    Welcome! :orcs-buttshake:

    It really is baffling how that's the official Dune forum. You certainly saved the trouble of being banned/Freakbanned from DumbNovels.

    the "Corporate Dune" Board ....

    welcome to the sietch!

    as for the hand thing...doesn't the dimwit use dicta-hicking? one argument that would support this - would be him being too lazy to actually write himself.
