Sequelae

Poking around on Amazon just now, I noticed two titles, coming Real Soon Now:

Shadows in Flight, by Orson Scott Card, a sequel to Shadow of the Giant (which I read in 2005). Am I still interested in the endless Ender series? And do I really want to buy books written by an asshat? No, and no.

Sisterhood of Dune, by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson, a sequel to…one or another of the nine-and-ninety Dune books Herbert & Anderson have cranked out over the last ten years. There are so many I can’t keep them straight, but I confess I have read only two: Dune: House Atreides (in 1999) and Dune: House Harkonnen (in 2000). They were so vile I refused to read any more.

…so I think neither of these will appear on my wishlist.

    “They were so vile I refused to read any more.”

    I’ve read them all. “Vile” doesn’t even scratch the surface of what they have become…. Give water to Frank Herbert!
