Rho I haven't read Redemption's Blade but I hope you enjoy it Rho! The other one I read from his was The Tiger and the Wolf, but that was some years back. I think he might have now finished writing that series, so I'll have to go back and re-read it, then pick up the others!
I love short stories too. If a whole book is a full meal, then short stories are like... just nice little snacks :] Also someone having the imagination and skill to write a whole book bowls me over, but someone being able to tell a whole story within a matter of a few pages is just?! Some kind of witchcraft?!?!?!
I'm so glad you loved Dune! I have been in the "Duniverse" since I was a child, lol! It really is a unique novel and once you've read it you start picking up little references in all sorts of other sci-fi. I have read it around once a year for some years now, but it's such a deep, complex book I don't think I'll EVER feel able to say "Oh yeah, I totally get Dune" rofl!! So I keep reading it, and keep trying to absorb a little more each time... (Also my memory is rubbish and I have to keep refreshing it!)
Your thoughts about Thufir made me laugh, haha! I'd not considered it that way, but it's so interesting to get a first-time reader's impressions - I can totally see where you're coming from! I am going to have to re-read some sections of the book and hopefully refresh my memory enough to discuss Hawat being the stupidest mentat in the imperium, rofl!!

Thor: Oh no I have 44 profile notifications now-- I found a method to my showing madness but it makes notifications like crazy! I wonder if there's a way to turn off certain ones in settings haha

Arie: Thor, it should be possible to disable notifications per (sub)board! I know I've done it before.

Ratqueen: moonkiddo, please post your Petz questions in the Petz Talk & Help board. Also read the rules to use the Shoutbox (this is not a chatroom, as it's very limited and only shows 20 posts).

Alex@Marvel: So I decided after (I don't even know how many) years of Gotham being my prefix, it's now Marvel. ^^ I felt like it was time for a rebranding.
