LOOK WHAT YOU HAVE DONE
I fancy reading Chapterhouse just to see how weird it is.
It really doesn't get any sadder than that.
Joss Whedon's Firefly comes close, that was a bloody good series, and can't wait till Serienty the Movie comes out
I'm reading Children of Dune now...to be honest, I'm really rather confused.

Don't get me wrong, I really enjoyed them (The Machine Crusade is the weakest I've read so far. I hope the final one is better) but if fans of Franks work are expecting more of the same, they'll se sorely disappointed. The Dune sequels are damn hard going. When Paul starts turning into the sandworm was when I thought "uh ohh". Chapterhouse I still don't have much of a clue with what was going on......

Yup. Fully agree.

Heh. Guess who loved 'em? Your right; they were rather slapdash. But still a hell of a lot more penetrable than the Dune sequels.
Oh, and having seen the SF channels Dune, I can safely say that it was the most passionless, soulless sci-fi I've ever seen. No accounting for taste I suppose...
> Sci-Fi channel is utter gack.
it's been downhill since mystery science theatre 3000 stopped :(
