You don't want to know them. You think you do, so those few of us who are the Protectors of Spoilers give you tiny insignificant details that although spoilers are meaningless to the general over all reading of the novel. What you are given are hints and clues to more significant events that serve only to whet your appetite and make you more than ever want to read the novel. Spoilers of this sort include what characters might be in a novel and what planets might be included. What you don't want to know and what you should never know before reading a novel is who is going to die, and in some cases who is going to live. You just don't know you don't want to know. And the few of us who know, we only know so we can protect everyone else from knowing too early. Consider it a personal sacrifice. All this talk of Jimmy and Herbert shouldn't be happening. Just read what is given to you from various fansites. Let them psyche you up, and be content with finding out the juiciest parts of novels on your own by reading it.
