    JNK, being a SciFi guy like me you must know of Brian Herbert (Frank(Dune)Herbert's son), and probably have read some Brian Herbert/Kevin Anderson Dune books before. Don't know if you like them or not?.. I actually quite enjoyed most of them, but the last one they churned out was pretty bad. I abandoned the book midstream because I just couldn't take the ridiculous, utterly unbelievable plot. I did however pick it back up months later just to get it finished and so I could deleted out of my iTunes catalog.:)

    Well if I have to say then I have gone through with many movies and when it comes to joining of the community it is simply going crazy for those forums.
