I love the original and the two books that immediately follow it, but I don't care for the rest. I don't think the new writers killed it; it was already on its way down when old Frank Herbert finished off God Emperor of Dune. It feels as if they're lacking in substance. Still, Dune holds a special place on my bookshelf and I wouldn't have it any other way. Bad continuations or no.

No, you can't kill the originals, they stand in their own right as classics. The newer books are a little different, and some like them some don't. I'm glad they were written.
