    Achlan wasachlan! Welcome! :)
    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

    Welcome, Crizius! I see that the Dune demotivators on this board have a great success :D
    Soon you will be stormed by other users' welcome messages (many of them live on the other side of the planet with respect to the ours, I still have to get used to this asynchrony). ;)

    May Shai-Hulud Clear the Path Before You.

    Welcome. Twice welcome.

    I'd like to ask, are you reading the Dune series in English, or a Lithuanian translation?
    I don't think the author should make the reader do that much work - Kevin J. Anderson
    We think we've updated 'Dune' for a modern readership without dumbing it down.- Brian Herbert
    There’s an unwritten compact between you and the reader. If someone enters a bookstore and sets down hard earned money(energy) for your book, you owe that person some entertainment and as much more as you can give. - Frank Herbert
