    Yeah, some of the other contributors does this. I have no idea why, and I'd be much surprised if anything interesting came of it. Anyway, I hope you'll judge each chapter on its own merits - or I'm in for a shitstorm around these parts :-)

    So far

    1 mention of Erasmus, this is the worst offender, the way it is written makes it sound like Frank created the character.

    2 Mentions of Grunters and Waterworms; mentions they are written by Keith and Bobo and says that the GP is carried on in those tales.

    1 Quote from Paul of Dune; "My Brother is Pragmatic-Alia."

    So all philosophers aren't as smart as Lundse?

    This is not a surprise. ;)

    Well shit, you can't say DUNE on Amazon without shillin for the man, apparently. I thought I'd get a laugh and I actually posted my 'shill' review on amazon, and I landed a lamprey!

    Is E. E. Kegge anyone we know, or a regular on Amazon?

    Amp, did you answer Pestie's question about where you were getting your sales figures? :lol:

    He's pretty damned slow, what? How many times have you mentioned here that you work at a bookstore? :roll:

    And the spelling is as bad as always. Or is it typos... those fat fingers on a wee-leetle keeeeboord? :lol:

    Please, after dealing with 130 middle school kids who think that they: do not need to use punctuation or capitalization of any kind, believe text speech is acceptable for use in an English class, randomly capitalize words in the middle of a sentence, a few typos is not going to have me sleepless at night.

    In other words, Robert E. Lee is descended from a damn dirty ape :evil:

    Sorry if this is obvious. Lundse, do you know the release date for the U.K? I've ordered from amazon.co.uk which says that the title has yet to be released, but gives no other information.

    Actually I just had another look. In the search results, but not on the actual listing, they have it listed as being released on the 22 April, but still available for pre-order. So I guess it's just Amazon screwing up. :)

    It's buyable, but "Usually dispatched within 11 to 13 days" :?

    Ordered, I'll let you know if it works in 60 to 90... I mean, 11 to 13 days... :)

    Yeah, it just changed to that soon after I'd posted. Annoying. I have already ordered it, so we'll see who gets it first! :)

    first off: @Brian Conway
    you sir, are such an amazing mass of Internet Fail, it is difficult to believe that straight Science Fiction Author
    James C. Harwood rejected and repudiated you before his untimely demise; your typos are understandable, as
    tehKJA's ball-sack has got to be blocking your view of the screen .....

    but to business:
