    Frankly that statement is without foundation.

      Yeah, everyone knows that honor goes to Ender's Game.

        Frankly it is not my opinion, I am merely parroting the majority viewpoint of the science fiction community for the last several decades.

        So I think you will find you are massively outgunned

        And I only need to point to a local bookstore shelf to demonstrate the truth. 17 releases already published, 2 more planned is no small task to outperform.

        Check out wiki
        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dune_(novel)

        "Dune is a science fiction novel written by Frank Herbert, published in 1965. It won the 1966 Hugo Award and the inaugural Nebula Award for Best Novel.[1] Dune is also the first bestselling hardcover science fiction novel and is frequently cited as the world's best-selling science fiction novel".

        I rather think the foundation is immensely solid actually
        Life is change. Built models for decades.
        Not sure anyone here actually knows the real me.
        I didn't for a long time either.

          I'm more excited for the inevitable sequel, "electronic battleship."

                My only negative comment against Herbert's writings would be that his time spans often left me a little confused on where it fit in and what had happened in the intervening millenia. This is mostly directed at his later books in the Dune saga.

                  Anybody remember The Omega Virus?

                  That might make a good sci-fi.

                    Herbert wrote Dune as a stand alone one off.
