    Hey

    Postby guild navigator » 28 Aug 2008 20:29

    Some of you may know me from the old DN BBS. Basically, I used to be a "soft-core supporter" of KJA and BH, thinking that their books may be leagues below Frank's original work, but not something to nessecarily get angry at, or to incessantly trash the works for. However after the ending of Sandworms, I have decided that what they did to FH's legacy is unforgiveable. Trashing the Golden Path and using a deus ex machina 15000 year old "goddess" just is contradicting the entire fucking series!!! I burned House Atreides through Corrino in my backyard last night, and soon I'll do the Legends trilogy ( I'll get pictures...) Anyways, hey yall!

    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

    Looking forward to the pictures as well.

    Hi Guildnavigator.

    You know, I'm just going to have to force myself to read Sandworms, just to see if it truly is as bad as everyone says.

    You must not have seen that Bryon said the authors worked hard to avoid a deus ex machina in the new books, so he's got you there :roll:

    Anyway, hi.

    It was great, thanks. I'm still trying to track down a Lithuanian edition of Dune ( it's out there apparently). If you've ever been to Ireland, think of the countryside except ten times more beautiful, and it covers the whole country. The Hanging Gardens in Kretinga Region are also beautiful.
