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.

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

I'm liking the phrasing from the old review of BJ of Dune linked to recently,
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.
