Mentat is coming to town

Postby Kloud » 12 Dec 2011 16:03

Hi guys!

My name is Claudio and I'm a member of Duneitalia. Luca (a.k.a. Rymoah) told me about this site and I wish to join in.

I discovered sci-fi literature thanks to my father: he's got a good collection of books.
My first approach to Dune began when I was 16 with David Lynch's movie, therefore I red the first novel and then the other ones.
I just loved the Emperor God: I can't understand if it is a good novel or a wonderful philosophical essay.

About the books of Kevin and Brian: I think that those waste of dead trees must be converted into thermal energy! :mad:

I hope you need my human computer's skills.

Achlan, Wasachlan!, dear colleague! :) You have just arrived to the best place to discuss Dune with people from all around the world that truly honour and respect Frank Herbert's legacy. ;)

Welcome, twice welcome !

Your English is good, your reasoning sound and you don't like the hack...
You'll fit in just fine I'm sure !

And we also digress a lot, so be prepared for that too :)

Achlan wasachlan bik! :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
