KJA is Publishing More Unpublished FH Work

Postby Freakzilla » 23 Sep 2014 18:16

Preparing one more never-before-published Frank Herbert novel, A THORN IN THE BUSH to be released by WordFire Press. It should be out by November. (This is one of the novels he wrote when he took his family to live in Mexico, early in his career.)

I have to force myself not to think about how much of a crime this is.

What the fuck!? One of them is called A Game of Authors? Oh, God.. I thought it was over... The worst bit I've read here in a while, I'm sorry to say. Ah, well...

Yes, that one was mentioned in Dreamer of Dune, written in Mexico.

Sorry. I didn't know that. I guess that, when I saw A Game of Authors, A Game of Thrones came to mind, and it was a little much for me. I thought maybe the KJA had given it that title, and old feelings boiled to the surface. You know what I mean. So... Frank Herbert had completed these stories, right? They were just never published, and that's all KJA is doing, right? Anyway, later.

  1. The cover gives the impression that it's going to be a physical book, not an ebook.
  2. Are they using the Orthodox Herbertarian font? :D
  3. The way they use it is not stellar. Look at the space between 'H' and 'ERBERT' on the four mini-covers on the back.

I googled it thinking it was some weird coincidence.
Found this.

That's probably the game.

The worrying thing is that most people here wouldn't have put it past the hack to think such a title would have been such a smart idea...

More like it was a text they had forever, then the Hack saw it and immediately knew he could cash in on Game of Thrones AND Frank Herbert at the same time.

"A Thorn in the Bush" sounds like an 80s gay porno staring tehkja and Bri Bri.
The name Atreides was also consciously chosen. It is the family name of Agamemnon. Says Herbert, "I wanted a sense of monumental aristocracy, but with tragedy hanging over them--and in our culture, Agamemnon personifies that."
Frank Herbert by Tim O'Reilly

Ghanima said. "We Atreides go back to Agamemnon..."
Distracted, Irulan asked: "Who's Agamemnon?"

A Thorn in the Bush sounds more like the kind of porno where the 'star' is obviously both the producer, director, and 'screenwriter' and is an aging fat man with a thorn sized penis who doesn't even belong in old/young vids and who is trying to show off how many beautiful young women he gets. Yet every female in the porn is some poor crack addicted waif who only makes you lower the bar to which a self-aware entity would degrade itself to survive.

The kind that has pictures on the box that aren't in the actual film and whose title is over taken by a huge banner from "Lucky Bandersnatch Productions: A Lucky Bandersnatch Film. And Kevin J Anderson."

now, you may :puke:
