Hi I'm Demerzel.

Postby Demerzel » 05 Sep 2011 13:00

I'm Demerzel and am a HUGE fan of science fiction. My name was taken from an alias of one of my favorite characters from Asimov's Robot-Empire-Foundation series. My favorite single book would have to be Hyperion by Dan Simmons, followed closely by Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card and Second Foundation by Asimov. The rest of the top ten would be dominated mainly by the original Dune series.

While you may have noticed that the Dune books come in only fourth, I must admit that they're the ones which facilitate the most discussion, and thus these forums were an absolute joy for me to come across.

I'm a fan of gaming and astronomy. I play decent basketball and also enjoy table tennis as a quick way to loosen up.
When Paul was three I found him wearing lingerie I was planning to wear for my Duke. I asked him: "How can this be?" and he answered: "For I am the Kwisatz Haderach!" I was proud since these were the first words Paul ever spoke, but now I knew for certain that my Paul was a special boy. I brought him to Duncan's room while he was busy "training" a young maidservant in the Art of Sword-Handling. My Paul shall be the best! - Tleszer

Paul of Dune was so bad it gave me a seizure that dislocated both of my shoulders and prolapsed my anus.

Thanks all! And no I don't have any videos. Also I'm not good enough to be video-worthy :S.

Well Met and Welcome, grab a spice beer and join in!

favoring Dune is great, first, last, second, who cares:)

I finished the hyperion cantos earlier this summer, its a wonderful story, and I liked it a great deal. I thought Dan was a little long winded on the world description stuff, but understand why he was doing it. Otherwise, top notch. Enders is on my top five also.

When did ping pong become table tennis?? jk

Great to have ya, and dont forget YOUR WATER IS OURS NOW!

In 1901 (looked it up). :D Thanks! Also, the world description was tedious, except for the water world. That was breathtaking.

@merkin muffley: thanks!
