The Dune Saga Podcast #16: Heretics of Dune

It has been 1500 years since the rule of Leto II, and the humanity is well on his Golden Path designed to save the species from destruction.  Following the scattering, where humanity has spread throughout the universe, some are returning and they are bent on conquest.  The Bene Geserit are faced with a choice; to either continue to manipulate in the background as they always have, or to embrace the Golden Path and push humanity on to a future and avoid extinction.  Join David, Scott and Jim as they look at Frank Herbert’s Heretics of Dune.

    Does post-transformation Miles Teg’s dire need for calories after using his miraculous abilities remind anyone else of the Master in the Doctor Who reboot when he was hopping around, shooting energy out of his hands and needing food, food, and more food. (The Master actually ate some homeless people, I’m glad Miles was humane).

    On another note, I can’t believe you didn’t know who Tony Levin is. You know Peter Gabriel’s “Sledgehammer”, right? He’s played bass for Peter Gabriel since the 70s and has been a member of King Krimson. He is also a session player, that’s when he would have played for Alice Cooper, Pink Floyd, and Sarah McLachlan and man others. I figured this would be up Jim’s alley for sure, but I am a bassist not a lutist, so Levin is a regular to me.

    I can forgive you this time (just joking, this is random music knowledge), but make sure you never mention a chairdog again or I’ll have problems!

    I completely disregard the prequels and sequels to Frank Herbert’s original series of six novels. They’re just a money-making exercise trading on the fame and success of the original but having none of the substance and nuance and literary quality of the originals.

      “Arrakis teaches the attitude of the knife. Of chopping off what is incomplete and saying it is complete now because it ended here.”

      Brian definatly could have learned that before trying to cash in on his father’s name.
