    How-deeee!

    Postby JabbaMustDie » 05 Jun 2008 17:11

    I saw Freak's link to here, and violin! I am here.

    I was posting as Cyborg-Michael on House Atreides, many double-moons ago. JabbaMustDie on the....official (?) site.

    I first read "Dune" some twenty years ago, and to this day am always reading the Dune books.

    (And for me, the no-ship has just taken off! Cat-men in the hold! Jews in Space! All aboard with The Artist Formally Known as Sheeana!)

    I may have had originally a few....not-harsh words to describe the sequels, but since then I have formed new opinions. To me, they remind me of that scene in "Instinct", where the pitiful mental patient is sitting on the floor banging his head on the wall while wearing a football helmet. Reading the sequels is sort of the same thing, but without the helmet...

    Achlan wasachlan!

    We are cast out here, but not worm cast like the other place.
    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

    For some reason I'm imagining Pvt. Pile(sp?) sitting on the toilet, loading a rifle and saying "I'm in a world of pain"...
