I work part time as a tech for a local bookstore. So, I spend a couple hours a week there. And yesterday, when I was in poking around trying to figure out why the e-mail orders weren't getting printed, Brian Herbert walks in to sign some books. Met him, talked to him for a little bit. He's a nice guy, writing a book on the merchant marine. Fortunatly for me, he wasn't with his cohort in the dune books, Kevin J. Anderson. So I was actually able to talk to him in an intellegent manner instead of "ok, so you've ruined one of my childhood loves (star wars) with your crappy writing. Now you're working on another. Thanks lots...YOU DIE NOW!!!!!" coming over me.
