    Hello, I am a big Dune fan.
    Look forward to talking about all the Dune books.

    Peace!

    Hey, KJA, whaddaya say? Been a while, ain't it?

    You're a big something or other, all right.

    The Dune books, huh? Have you actually read any?
    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

    I don't think he's even read his own Dune books.

    Seriously, how could he write the books if he hadn't read them?

    In fact, I believe there is a interview floating around that explains how Brian Herbert decided upon Kevin Anderson after he demonstrated how much Dune had influenced his own novels such as Blindfold.

    Oops. :oops:

    Accidentally breaking that damned fourth wall there, buddy?

    I'm not impressed with Brian Herbert's Dune knowledge either.

    Brian is not only his son, and has all his notes, but co-authored books with the man.

    In what way does that have anything to do with his Dune knowledge? I have the Bible but that doesn't make me an expert on the contents does it?

    Of course you're not. Jesus ain't your dad and you didn't co-author any gospels with him, either :wink:

    That's because they're all still little kids over at DN. I'm the real deal. :wink:

    Could you dedicate something in PoD to me? *Love*

    And which Dune book was written by both Frank and Brian again? Brian has proven time and again failing to grasp even the most basic idea's in Dune. Being Frank's son doesn't change one god damned thing about that. Now you are making me angry and all. Happy?

    KJA, if you don't mind me asking, what username did you use at DN. I'd just find it strange complaining about a place where you haven't been. Granted, I haven't really been to DN in a while but I don't seem to remember a KJA there...

    What? Complain about DN? Quote?
    Orald said all the posters at DN were children.

    Which disaster... saying that people at DN are children, that our friends here are children, that I don't know what a confused emoticon looks like, that KJA is a killing word :lol: (obviously not a reflection on this KJA... yet :wink: ), or that I seem to like to shoot myself in the foot...

    Now I'm starting to think you might be KJA, you spelled Tleilaxu wrong.
