Um, is this that “only one mistake”, Kevin?

SandChigger | January 29, 2011

As you may know, I have begun rereading the Legends of Dune books in preparation [read: sharpening the knives] for the release of The Sisterhood of Dune sometime next year. (And filling out the synopsis page and making notes on why the books suck so bad as I do so.) And I think I may [...]

She must be collage ejikated

SandChigger | January 28, 2011

Whoever it is that posts using the DuneNovels account on Twitter, they’re a complete and ignorant dumbass. Here’s their newest beauty: I guess they figured “[ ]” would make more sense to the equally illiterate fanboys following the account feed. I mean, ellipsis is so … unfamiliar and … unusual these days … people just [...]

No official oversight whatsoever!

SandChigger | January 28, 2011

TheKJA (Kevin J Anderson) while my test group reads SISTERHOOD OF DUNE and I prep for UK HELLHOLE tour, I think I’ll try to sneak in writing a new novel. 22 hours ago Remember that in an interview back in 2006, KJA revealed that his “test group” consisted (then, at least) of wife Rebecca, her [...]

Looks like the zombie has another book coming out with another writing partner. Has anyone heard anything about this? (Did Kevin know Brian was seeing someone else?! Ooh, won’t he have such a bitchy little snit if not!) Sounds positively… boring: After the Greenland ice cap suffers an abrupt and catastrophic collapse, Earth’s climate suddenly [...]

Dune Movie News!

Whoa… how much longer before DuneNovels releases the news on the latest development concerning movie? Do they think they can keep a lid on this one forever?! Tweet

This One’s Personal: Return of the Red Deer Cunt

SandChigger | January 18, 2011

Back in June of last year when I announced the Dune fan fiction contest over on FED2k, Hypatia waited about a week and posted this: Why, thank you for the invitation, SandChigger. What a shame it isn’t really open to everybody.. Her little fuckpet from the Arrakeen days, arnoldo, then chimed in with bullshit about [...]
