Book of the Week: “Dune.”

I suppose that most of my readers who are also science fiction buffs have already read Dune: for the rest of you, it’s… it’s just one of the Books. This one volume alone justifies the title ‘epic:’ a combination of religion, political intrigue, war, and ecology that pretty much blew the minds of every science fiction author that read it.  Even the people who hate it now can’t really avoid it: Dune helps define the entire genre.

Plus, it has giant sandworms and people fighting with swords. That always brings in an audience. (more…)


With apologies to Herbert and Bonewitz.

The one wrote the original creed for Dune and the other adapted it while writing Authentic Thaumaturgy*. I just altered the adaptation back in a couple of places.

It is by will alone I set my mind in motion.
It is by the brew of Java that thoughts acquire speed.
The thoughts acquire speed.
The hands acquire shaking.
The shaking becomes a warning.
It is by will alone I set my mind in motion.
