I ask, because the Prince of Nothing just reeks of Herbert and Dune.

I don't think he is being derivative, well, maybe a little, but I see a lot of similarities in the way the two authors write.

Nevermind a few devices that seem to be lifted straight out of Dune.

Not complaining, mind you. It works very well for me, and others it would seem. view post

Yes, I believe Scott addresses the influence Herbert had on his writing somewhere on the board. view post

Most definately. Scott gives Frank's infuences their credit. view post

Just on this topic, I think Scott has said somewhere that the Skinspies were an obvious homage to Herbert's Facedancers. As regards Bakker's ability as a writer and storyteller versus Herbert, I think most of us could agree that the pupil has far excelled the teacher. view post
