Thanks, Simon. This is not the on-line essay by Kristin Brennan that I have put up before. It is new to me, so I cant wait to take a look.

No worries. Do you have a link to that essay? I wouldn't mind reading that too.

Wow I just looked at the number of pages in the book above. 533 page :shock: Wish I had a nice pdf reader so I could read in on the way to and from work

His synopsis of Dune is, well, interesting to say the least. ;)
"Chancho...sometimes when you are a man...you wear stretchy pants...in your room...alone."

"Politics is never simple, like the sand chigger of Arrakis, one is rarely truly free of its bite."

Its in the Herbert Secondary Sources page. Just go there and search for "Lucas" and it will come up first.
