I swear to you.

Based on this kind of thing, one day in the future some one wanting to make a profit will invent something like a Tleilaxu Axlotl tank.

And then eventually we may end up with Honored Matres thousands of years later.

And that last thing you want is a pissed off Honored Matre on your ass!

Utter total shit.

Is it morally reprehensible act to have spent a long time avoiding so-called sequel books to a book that you consider on par with the the Dhamapadda and or even the parts of the Torah, Mahabharata, and possibly even the New Testament if you only take the book out of the library to see truly how bad it is because what you've accidentally read on the internets made you laugh so hard that you know it can't possibly tarnish in any shape way or form what the author originally intended regardless of the fact that the author's son says he is using notes supposedly left by the author when you know that the author probably would never have written something so laughable or something so childish and basic when compared with everything he wrote before?

If you don't give the hack writers any actual money and you read it just "for a laugh" will you be forced to read more of the hack writers' works if you end up in an afterlife?

Thank you disillusionment.


Long time readers know that I am eternally grateful to Frank Herbert for giving me The God Emperor of Dune. The Dune series, and especially this novel, forever changed me when I was a lad and helped shape who I am today.

I made a vow to never read what has become known as Hunters of Dune or the forthcoming Sandworms of Dune by the schlock writing team of Brian Herbert and Kevin Anderson.

These two novels, if you can call them that, are the supposed fruits of finding Frank Herbert's notes for a 7th Dune novel to come after Chapterhouse: Dune.

I gave in and read the awful direct prequels of House Atreides, House Harkonnen, and, House Corrino because I knew they could never taint the original books.

I even went to far as to suffer through the super mega godawful Butlerian Jihad, Machine Crusade, and Battle for Corrin "books" that sets up the Brian Herbert/Kevin Anderson version of the Dune universe because I knew that these certainly could never taint the original books.

These 6 pieces of drivel popped out once a year like clockwork like so much garbage mass-market sci-fi.

But the thought that they found Frank Herbert's notes locked in a safety deposit box makes for better fiction than this crap ever could.

Today I was looking up something Dune-related and came across some Google results that sounded like awful laughable bad fan fiction.

What I didn't know when I was reading them was that they were basically spoilers for Hunters of Dune.

Whatever Flash 9 bug, god, God, gods, faire folk, Kwizatch Haderachs, Flash 9 demon, magic elves, or what-have-you that made my web browser crash at that moment I thank you.

Thank you.

Now I need to get back to writing that novel about Frank Herbert coming back to life as a zombie and eating the brains of the publisher's of this prequel and sequel shitfest.
