"Fear is the Mindkiller" is a quote from the Frank Herbert book "Dune".

For David who seems a bit confused,

Frank Herbert's Dune Series.

弗兰克哈巴特(FRANK HERBERT)的《沙丘丛书》(DUNE SERIES)

It is a set of novels or story books :)

Dune fans = people who like/admire/support the Dune Series.

A "fan" is an enthusiastic admirer or supporter.

eg. Britney fans = people who like/admire/support Britney Spears.

But guys, fear is 恐懼, not 憂鬱.

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind killer."

"我絕不能恐懼. 恐懼是意志的殺手."

is anything lost in the translation?

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind killer."

"我絕不能恐懼. 恐懼是意志的殺手."

If try to translate directly, I have something like "恐惧是思考的杀手" for your consideration.

If somebody here can explain the content of the fiction so that I can think something indirectly. :lol:
