So now for another of my little admissions - I hate reading a series where material is still being released - partly because I am impatient and hate waiting for another book and partly because I worry that the material for whatever reason will not get released at all.
Anyway that is really the reason why I have not read as much of the extended Dune universe as I really should especially since I have so many of the book squirrelled away in various corners of my library. Anyway that aside - on my t So now for another of my little admissions - I hate reading a series where material is still being released - partly because I am impatient and hate waiting for another book and partly because I worry that the material for whatever reason will not get released at all.
Anyway that aside - on my travels came across these short stories which illuminate small sections and frames of that universe but help link in and explain a few things I was not so sure about but I am sure would have been answered if I was up to date with the books.
The story is pretty straight forward but for me its more that fact it explains one of those "ahh I see, that explains it Anyway the whole Dune universe is truly an amazing and complex place to explore and I suspect the scope for new material is almost limitless but at least now one little part of it fits together just that little bit more closely.

Oct 03, M. Not the worst story that Brian wrote to "add" to the Duneverse. Would have worked better as an original story set in a world of Brian's own making though. May 25, Cathy Skipworth rated it it was amazing.
This is the second of these short stories I have read and find then quite delightful. A few pages packed with information and action. They are great interlude between the much longer main books of the series. Nov 18, Elwin Kline rated it it was amazing Shelves: sci-fi. Loved it! For a mere 18 page short story, I think it was absolutely fantastic. What more could be reasonably asked for within And Looking forward to starting The Machine Crusade soon! Two new very interesting characters have been introduced, the current state of a previous main character from the The Butlerian Jihad, and a status update of the state of the Jihad war.
Oct 07, Emilio A. Olivieri rated it liked it. Another good short story from Brian Herbert and Kevin Anderson, better than the two books I've read from the Legends of Dune trilogy until now. The story tells about the first serious training of Vergyl Tantor, Xavier Harkonnen's adopted brother. He uses a thinking machine to train. But, does the thinking machine actually have mercy? May 09, Campo rated it it was amazing. Mid Butlerian Jihad we encounter this story that includes mainstays of the Butlerian Jihad trilogy and some that though not of important birth made an impact in the landscape of the Dune Universe.
The whipping Mek itself and it's first opponent were very interesting characters for me in the books, so this extra story feels great. Jan 14, Bruno Silva rated it liked it Shelves: sf.
