I first got introduced to dune from the Lynch Movie. That started me reading the books in elementary school, I probably didnt comprehend a thing from any of them but that didnt stop me from trying. A few years later I wanted to get back into the series so I went to value village to get Dune, which I remembered as being My only favorite. I found a paperback with the movie cover, bought it and took it home to find out that it was autographed. Thats probably the real reason i bought Grunters and Sadworms, to build an autographed dune collection. A few years after that when my childhood aversion to abstract ideas and large words being made archaic by todays education system went away, i went to buy the whole series again. I found someones hardbound collection of the butlerian jihad all the way to chapterhouse with dreamer of dune included. I remeber being excited by the glittering promise of a dune 7.
Legends of dune was shit, houses of dune wasnt terrible, dune 7 was a bait and switch.
About myself, I am a structures mechanic on the 787 Nightmareliner in everett, on a daily basis I deal with hacks of a global partnership type. Thats why I hate ignorance, mediocrity and self fellating.
We need some orthodox herbertarian t-shirts to wear proudly to booksignings and conventions.
Kevin J. Anderson is so stupid he thinks he invented The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen since he wrote the movie tie-in.
