I just read through this thread for the first time. Nice!

SR: Now that Brian and Anderson's new book "Paul of Dune" is set in between DUNE and DUNE MESSIAH, not just a sequel or a prequel, but an "interquel" if you will, do you think Frank Herbert's Dune Legacy is in danger ? Will these new books "devalue" the DUNE trademark and so taint Frank's literary Legacy ?

NS: Who knows? In the long run, it depends on the critics, readers, and publishers. One thing Brian and Kevin can't ever do is put the byline "by Frank Herbert" on their stuff. That "Dune" is now a trademark I find disgusting, and the more it is devalued, the better. That trademark has little or nothing to do with Frank Herbert's literary legacy.
I bring nothing to the table.

Except here in the Netherlands...; Lower left corner. ("Jagers van Duin" = "Hunters of Dune") :roll:

Ohhhhhhh the horror.
If you fart in the wilderness, and a bear eats you before you can smell it, does it matter if it makes an odor?

It was the high-point of my personal Jihad. I'd never done anything like that before. It WAS pretty cool. :)

I personally feel that this message board, Jacurutu, is full of hateful folks who don't know
how to fully interact with people.
