    Exactly.

    He's just proving his ignorance yet again. And showing that he really does not understand our real complaints.

    Fuck him.

    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

    Besides, we've discussed FH's errors in great detail here (Farok had three arms)


    Kevin is a nice guy, I got to meet him in person not to long ago. It was pretty awesome. I agree, Frank made a lot of mistakes, but Brian and Kevin are going through the old novels now and correcting them, there is alot of stuff Frank didn't get about Dune, and it doesn't track very well with the majority of the books. They'll have to be changed to keep the canon non-contradicting. Out with the old in with the new.

    You really tried to put some thought into this didn't you?
    Leto II is gone for good, except for OM. The "pearl" was just that; a miniscule portion of what Leto was, and not a compressed version of the whole. The pearl that the worms have do not make them Leto, or in any way similar to him.

    Well the crazed nutter running around with a feathered duster up the bum and a tin foil hat always gets attention.
    Is it the kind of attention you'd want ?

    I doubt it but hey what do I know about nutters and trolling ?

    Sounds good to me. I'll be correcting your posts in the same way.

    Well boohoo !
    First of all we’ve been reading Dune carefully for years and you sir, write monkey fanfic at best. That defense “they’re not smart enough to understand” is laughable : we have some of the most knowlegeable people online on the subject and the Cast Out can boast having the only english speaking website still active. (Where’s Byron by the way ? Tumbleweeds don’t make the best users you know.. but they have the intellectual level required for your drivel so there you go)

    Secondly we did not set any double standards, you did… You did by thinking stealing the franchise from the HLP would give you the credit you think you deserve.
    Well I’ve got news for you, it doesn’t work that way The simple fact you seem to really believe your PR BS shows how far away from the truth you are.
    Time will tell, and you will be long forgotten when Frank’s work will still shine high above, far from your stinking paws. You have no immortality.

    And to finish, Talifan huh ? How inventive ? I’m so hurt by your shimmering wit… What ? You did not come up with it ? Really ?
    We are the Iduali, the Jacurutu Cast Out, you have sold Fremen for their water and you wear a collar.

    Publish the notes, I dare you.


    Damn. A-men, Brother Jay.. :clap:

    I loved that last part.

    It was extremely well-written and poignant, though. ;)
