one of the dogs was having a chase-dream last night, rolled over and started clawing my face;
after I got him awake and on the floor, I settled back down, and right before I drifted back to sleep,
I thought I really should read McDune007 all the way thru - on the heels of that, I thought I should
first re-read Heretics & Chapterhouse all the way thru, as novels; I don't think I've done that in a
long, long time ....
since I have not read the McDune007 in its' entirety, I've been out-of-the-loop on the thinking about
what elements of the story could've possibly been Frank's, if any part of the "outline" tale is true ...
I've become intrigued with the claim that Frank's primary idea for Dune7 somehow was "tied" to the
Butlerian Jihad ... and I've been on the hate-wagon about Keith turning Marty & Daniel into transvestite
robots, and the Duncan undoing the entire reason for Leto's Sacrifice .... and having been extremely
quick (too quick, possibly) to dismiss anything the Hacks Twain have stated, ever, about anything,
I've never given serious thought to the issue ...
also, as I've stated before, I did not read the prequels and had little interest in them, altho I was aware
of their existence from grocery store check-out lines and trolling for runaways at bus stations; I did not
get involved in any of the internet discussions until both parts of the McDune007 were in paperback, &
I purchased them together (at a grocery-store check-out), based solely on the "from Frank Herbert's
Outline" blurb on the back cover .... so I was late to the speculation, anyway, and have not devoted
any serious brain-energy to it ... mocking tehKJA and cyberbullying Innerwebz BlahgFiction Writers has
occupied most of my time ...
