Help us Zombie Herbert, you're our only hope.

aaaa

Comparing any shitty Dune-related novel by B. Herbert and K. Anderson to anything written by Frank Herbert is already abomination.

To say that their shlock sci-fi for the retarded is in fact better than Dune Messiah means you fail to understand the purpose of Dune Messiah.

Man I so hope that when the rapture happens, Zombie Frank Herbert will appear and eat the brains of his kid and that mundane Anderson, then piss all over their mundane schlock "novels".

Folks:

I must admit I have never read any of the DUNE novels. Do I lose my geek card now?
(I haven't read much besides MACHINERY'S HANDBOOK and the International Building Code lately. Do I get it back now? Or do I have to actually build an ornithopter?)
Still, even with such dribbles of secondhand information I have about the novels, that ad copy seems like it should provoke a John Lennon-style firestorm in the geek world. There will be riots at comic shops.

Cordially yours:

I tried reading Dune for a project in grade 12 and didn't make it through. I then resorted to watching the movie which I also couldn't finish. Even with Captain Picard in it. In the end I had my friend who loved the books and movie pretty much do the project for me.

I often feel that I should probably give it another chance. Maybe I just wasn't in a "Dune Place" in high school?
