    Maybe eventually. I'm a bit more hesitant about those because those are closer to the ones I didn't like and the ones where I couldn't get interested in any of the characters and had to force myself to get through them to finish. So far, all the BH&KJA ones I've read have been chronologically near or before the beginning of the series, with the interesting characters.

    I refuse to believe that was actually what was intended for the ending of the series. I mean, really? Really? Really.

    Ofcourse not. Too bad we will never know for certain. Im curious to know how much of it was based on his final notes and outline? We know that he made several mentions in the six he wrote about thinking machines and the Buterlain Jihad. Im sure he was going to use Scytales tube himself which I would have loved to seen played out in his own words.

    I have started Winds of Dune now, but I think this will be the last Dune book I read for a while.

    Good so far, though :)

    Part 1 is Jessica (and Alia, but mostly Jessica) after Paul's death. Part 2 is a lengthy flashback to when Paul was 12. That's as far as I've gotten so far (about 40% or so). So far it's quite good. I've been pleasantly surprised by the BH/KJA additions.

    I'll see if I'm in the mood for a long book in a bit. I'm really tired today - one of the three heating elements in my bedroom storage heater self-destructed at 5am complete with light and sound effects so I've been up since then. (Think of an electric oven heating element and you have an idea of what this looks like.) Since I didn't fall asleep til 2am I'm beat. And I have bits of storage heater all over the bedroom now so I can verify what part I need so I can order it. (I've been there and done this before. One element blew in 1995. It's not pretty. However the heater needs to cool down before I can take the rest apart.) So that's tomorrow's project. I might just do some light reading tonight.

    Just noticed that RJ that you said Alia was in Winds after Pauls death. Im curious to know if she is sane in it? Is grand daddy Harkonen emerging at all?

    What 9 yrs pass from Messiah to Children and at the beginning of that she is Abomination.
