    Hello, I'm a Brazilian fan of Dune. I'm 21 years-old and I'm graduating in astrophysics in the University of Rio de Janeiro. I'm 'carioca', and I have been living in Rio all my life.

    I knew Dune 3 years ago from a Phd friend, he told me about the story and plot of the book during a 6-hour travel to the National Astrophysic Laboratory (LNA), a telescope in the Southwest of Brazil, were the Brazilian astrophysics normally observe some celestial bodies for studies.
    After that talk, when we arrived in the LNA, I started searching in the internet everything about Dune. And some days after, in Rio, I began to search for the first book in the old-books stores in the Downtown. I made my girlfriend walk a lot!
    I found it, bought it and devoured it and became a huge fan of this magnificent universe wrote by 'Uncle Frank'! Obviously, in the next, I bought the other 5 canons and devoured it too.

    Here in Brazil, we don't have the B&K books translated, and because that, is normal for all the fans start reading the old canon, what, of course, is fantastic =P

    I hope to help very much here! And long live to the Orthodox Herbertians!

    ps: If someone already remember of me, I make part of the Dune Novels forum too.

    Astrophysics, eh? I seem to have missed that detail up till now. Cool! :)
    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

Anybody can say charming things and try to please and to flatter, but a true friend always says unpleasant things, and does not mind giving pain. Indeed, if he is a really true friend he prefers it, for he knows that then he is doing good.” -Oscar Wilde

    Olá!

    Thanks everybody!

    Well, in the present I'm working with Asteroids belt between Mars and Jupiter, and waiting to finish the graduation in about one and half years.

    I would really like to help in the questions of astronomy...(There are some wrong astronomical information in the Dune Encyclopedia and the B&K books that I would like discuss about in the future...)

    ps: Orald, in Portuguese we say "Olá" instead of Hola, hehehe. But, nice tray!
