Just saying hi. Im a dude from New York. I found this place randomly after surfing Dune content on the net the other day. I first read FH's books when I was about 16/17 in high school and they pretty much blew my mind (and still do). I think they're the most intense novels ever written and love pretty much everything about them. It was cool to come across a group of fans as dedicated to the series as I am. Thats about it. I look forward to chatting with ya'all about the books and whatnot. I have a beagle named Ghanima. It is tedious to explain constantly what the hell that means to random strangers in the park.

Yeah, that's probably the reason I didn't name my chinchilla "Muad'Dib."

Well done sir!
Leto II is gone for good, except for OM. The "pearl" was just that; a miniscule portion of what Leto was, and not a compressed version of the whole. The pearl that the worms have do not make them Leto, or in any way similar to him.

Achlan wasachlan! :D
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
