Contest: Winds of Dune Promotional Swag
Winds of Dune hits stores on Tuesday and I have a few pieces of promotional swag to distribute. Send me an email with the subject “Winds of Dune” and your snail mail address before midnight August 14th. I’ll randomly select some winners. I’ve not read any of the Dune books penned by Keven J. Anderson and Brian Herbert, but this book and Paul of Dune may be the ones that draw me back into the universe I love so much. From the promotional copy:
With their usual skill, Brian Herbert and Kevin Anderson have taken ideas left behind by Frank Herbert and filled them with living characters and a true sense of wonder. Where Paul of Dune picked up the saga directly after the events of Dune, The Winds of Dune begins after the events of Dune Messiah.
Paul has walked off into the sand, blind, and is presumed dead. Jessica and Gurney are on Caladan; Alia is trying to hold the Imperial government together with Duncan; Mohiam dead at the hands of Stilgar; Irulan imprisoned. Paul’s former friend, Bronso of Ix, now seems to be leading opposition to the House of Atreides. Herbert and Anderson’s newest book in this landmark series will concentrate on these characters as well the growing battle between Jessica, and her daughter, Alia.
In totally unrelated news, I started a twitter parody over the weekend called Twitter Plus One.
