ya agreed. he kinda peaked and that was it. i don't read scifi any more but he had some excellent ones...

i loved the dinner scene in dune when they're all having a copnversation with the water guy and the atreides family, and young atreides becomes a man during the convo...
also i should note, i think all the dune movies and tv series have been good, but the dune movie with sting is the bestest version.

PS - Dune is great, the first book (though as you said, the later ones started getting too out there)...
Though, corny as it is, I really enjoyed the recent "children of dune" movies (James McAvoy), and of course the 80's movie version of Dune...
lol yeah. treason is the only orson scott card book i read more than once. it roxored.
the dunes after the first were so horrible...and yet i read them...lol.
