Interesting that you mentioned Dune as the book you would most like to rewrite. That is one of the few books that i feel would not need changing all that much if you were given the opporunity to have a crack at redoing it.

I know what you mean about seeing possibilites in books that the author missed though. There are quite a few i would love to get my hands on and be able to rewrite. The WOT series probably being at the top of that list. Even though it has its flaws (and quite a lot of them), it does have a lot of promise that the author never really lived up to. I think you could cut out alot of the crap and run off on different tangents with some parts and still condense the series in half.

Then again, perhaps it wouldnt work. Im not sure i could work with a series that had some much duality in it (creator/darkone, male/female halfs of the source etc) without pulling the foundations of it apart <!-- s:) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_smile.gif" alt=":)" title="Smile" /><!-- s:) --> view post
