    I really don't care except that the ones left on Arrakeen are old; some of the chapters are mixed up, some were done by other people and it wasn't complete.

    I was thinking of asking that they take down the old ones from Arrakeen and giving them permission to use the complete ones at Jacurutu, but on the condition that they provide a link to the reading group here. Not out of spite or anything, but because I don't want my name associated with the old, incomplete ones and do want people to use the complete one from here. My goal in doing those reviews was a selfish one. It was to further my understanding of the story and possibly change it based on discussion of my summaries with other members. Some of my views may be too radical for others or maybe completely different. If they can argue their point well, I'll modify the summaries to reflect their input. So it is subject to change without notice.


    That's a good solution, Freak. They would be fools to say no.


    Apparently they disagree. Auyila says:
    Hi smile.gif

    You should be able to view all posts, with the exception of the Admin forum and the currently removed Reading Room forum. The first is for Staff discussion only - so although links to staff posts might be visible, you won't be able to see the content. The Reading Room forum won't be reopened for a while, as we'll be rewriting the synopses for the book chapters, one by one. smile.gif

    The only other forum that is PW protected, is the nuDune novels forum. If you'd like the access to that (currently empty), please let me know and I'll PM you the information.

    Any specific post(s) that wouldn't open for you, that got you especially confused?


    I guess they are just going to rewrite it rather than reference the real dune site.

    Yeah, 'cause it would just hurt them THAT MUCH to acknowledge or link to this site. :roll:

    Why the hell is their "nuDune novels forum" password protected? Afraid Byron will see something he doesn't like and make a note in his little black book.

    Fucking loons. :roll:

    SC is telling others not to hold a grudge, hah!

    All I'm saying is that you don't get to lecture me about grudges.

    O LORD OUR MOST HIGH-PHENATED G-D!

    How LONG, O Lord, must Thy most humble servant orald suffer the anguish?!

    The ANGUISH of the grievances wrought upon him by the evil floppy fishman?

    Yea, even he who sucks the melange gas, that SERPENT of Space, Edric of the Guild!

    How long, O Yah, must we Thy People endure the woeful sound
    of his gnashing teeth and loud lamentations?!

    O Lord! Deliver us!

    Ditto on you and Hyppo, Taz, Sloey etc, no? That's my point- Freak could lecture me, not you.

    And to explain my feelings towards this, I shall quote a very wise man:
    Because there is good and there is evil, and evil must be punished.
    Even in the face of armageddon I shall not compromise in this.

    Yes, whatever I wrote...I don't have the privilage to bitch about Edric since...but you can bitch about Hyppo because...

    Can anyone just explain it to me once and for all? You just keep saying it like it's some heavenly rule. :?

    orald, buddy, lemme give you a quick primer on Free Speech.

    You say whatever the fuck you want.
    Others will do the same.


    If you want to bitch about Edric in every post you make, you go right ahead.
    If it bugs the SandChigger, he will say so.
    You have the option of ignoring him.
    He has the option of ignoring you.

    Or you can both fight. That's cool, too.

    From the New Over There, yesterday, today :


    SandRider: what's the rationale for password protecting the Kevin J. Anderson books' forums ?

    Kantele: We didn't want everybody to immediately jump into another bashing party. Been there, done that, bored with it. This forum's major focus will be on REAL Dune - Frank Herbert's novels.

    So what's the point of having it? Just copy and past from Kevin's blog.

    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
