  1. Norma Cenva didn't start the sisterhood. I can't remember the name of the woman or many of the details, but it was that woman that took over the planet of psychic women who were keeping genetic records of breeding patterns wasn't it? I think Norma Cenva started the Guild.
  2. I just finished "The eyes of Hiesenburg". It was a very short book and a decent story. I think it could have been much more than what FH made it though. Moving onto "the Godmakers" next.
  3. I just finished Whipping Star. It is not a prequal to The Dosadi Experiment although it does star the same lead charachter, Jorje McKie. It was a short good read. Very interesting story.
  4. I was wondering about that as well. So did they change the outline left by FH to fit the machine's into the story or maybe FH planned it that way?
  5. Nice interviews with both authors. http://scifitalk.libsyn.com/
  6. Has anyone seen these before? http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=Emperor%3A+Battle+for+DUNE&search=Search
  7. My top 5 Dune Chapterhouse Heretics The Dosadi Experiment Destination Void I just finished Destenation Void a couple of weeks ago. I had never heard of until I picked up a copy for $1 at the used book store. I was really impressed. Probably the best dollar I've ever spent. The Dosadi Experiment was also a very good book. I've heard that there's another book that ties in with Dosadi called "Whipping Star". Has anyone ever read it? Currently I'm reading the final book in Gregory Bradford's Galactic Center series called "Sailing Bright Eternity". It has been a very good series. It is very heavy in the Physics and other science's. Another good series I read this year was the Rama series by Aurthur C. Clarke. Has anyone had the pleasure of reading these books. ALso Arthur C. Clarke's 2001, 2010, 2061, and 3001 were excellent books.
  8. In the Authors note at the beginning of " Prelude to Foundation" Asimov write's, "The books were not written in (perhaps)the order they should be read." Listed chronologically in terms of future history and not publication date: "The Complete Robot" "The Caves Of Steel" "The Naked Sun" "The Robots of Dawn" "Robots and Empire" "The Currents of Space" "The Stars , Like Dust" "Pebble In The Sky" "Prelude to Foundation" "Foundation" "Foundation and Empire" "Second Foundation" "Foundations Edge" "Foundation and Earth" He did not include "Forward the Foundation" in the list as it had not been published yet. I would place it after "Prelude to Foundation". I read the books in the following order: 1,2,and 3. Foundation Trilogy 4. "Foundation's Edge" 5. "Foundation and Earth" 6. "Prelude to Foundation" 7. "Forward the Foundation" Either way they are all great books. After Asimov's death other author's have gone on to write more Foundation novels. Has anyone read any of the new one's?
  9. I thought the prequals were definitly worth the time it took to read them. Also check out the Dune encyclopedia. There are many difference's between what it has to say and the way the prequals went.
  10. It's been awhile since I have read them , but isn't there a part in one of the prequals where ominus sends out a bunch of copies of himself into the universe? Could this be where the final books are heading? Will Ominus make a comeback? Please correct me if I'm wrong.
  11. After reading "House Harkonnen" , I would say thet the Baron does indeed enjoy killing for the fun of it.
  12. I got my copy from Ebay. $66.00 First edition hardcover. I think Amazon.com has some for sale as well.
  13. How about this one. :O http://story.news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&ncid=716&e=9&u=/ap/20041215/ap_on_bi_ge/japan_honda_robot Thou shall not create a machine in the likeness of man. Jihad!
  14. Yeah thats it. "One Small Step" was the episode I saw it in. :)
