DING DING DING DING DING!!!

Hey, looks like the encounter on Twitter wasn't our first after all:
3 of 10 people found the following review helpful:
"Paul of Dune" is Excellent, June 1, 2009
By James C. Harwood "James C. Harwood"
This review is from: Paul of Dune (Hardcover)

I read the first Dune novel in 1968 at age 12. I've been a fan of Frank Herbert and the Dune series of novels ever since then. I consider the new work on the Dune series by Brian Herbert and Kevan J. Anderson to be as good as if not superior to the work of Frank Herbert. The words flow so easily in the Dune prequels they have written, they are all a real pleasure to read. "Paul of Dune" is set between the events in Dune and the events in Dune Messiah, but it includes flashbacks to Paul at age 12 in the time that followed the last prequel on the Dune time line. For me, the flashbacks were like visiting old friends. I look forward to more!

Incredible! I know just what you mean. I've known for a while that there are people like you out there, who think this way, and it's always a distinct pleasure to run across one of you!

:D

how the fucking hell can one claim that he like the work of Frank Herbert (he never bothered to read the appendix) - and then in the next sentence praise KJA as a better writer?

Guess Frank's books was too hard to read.

I wish I had been able to see this. I know it's been talked about positively and negatively on either side. I don't know how I am supposed to contact him to allow me to view it. :-/

Was it paragraphed and formatted, or a wall-of-text?

Yeah, before he went all batshit on us, I was going to encourage him to read the appendices.

Now? Don't care so much. He can stick with his Soo-Soo Sook of DUNE.

Think McDune.

Keith and Bobo will write anything and put "of Dune" after it. Then, everyone at the HLP cashes their annual checks.

Paul of Dune ...

Winds of Dune ...

Sandworms of Dune ...

And, coming in the fall of 2014 ... Soo-Soo Sook of Dune!

I'm not going to read another of those new books until they come out with Dune Suks. That one I might pick up.

I found a copy of what was probably the first version of his post (so it doesn't include all the later, hysterical addenda) still open in a Safari window on my laptop. Since he'd probably shit his esophagus out his rectum and gasp "COPYRIGHT VIOLATION!" with his dying breath, I won't post it here, but PM me if you want a copy.

this is the reason why i accept his critics and advice :)

well done mate!!

EDIT

seeing the titles laid out like this(even without the fakes)reminds me of how many I actually read...
and I feel like crying for that time and money wasted...
I stopped after crapworms in swimsuits ;) (and didn't read battle of cringing), so fuck prreq argument "if you don't like them don't read them" as it is because I read them that I don't like them(that means they suck donkey balls)
