The product of generations of controlled breeding, trained in arcane disciplines by the Bene Gesserit sisterhood, he had more than human powers, including the ability to sense the shape of the future. Then the Bene Gesserit, unable to dominate the man they had made a god, set out to overthrow him -- a plot that involved such diverse characters as the Reverend Mother Gaius Helen Mohiam, the Tleilaxu face dancer Scytale, a ghola re-creation of a dead hero, and Paul's consort, the Princess Irulan. But Paul Atreides could foresee their plans and shape them to an unexpected and shocking goal. Dune Messiah, an epic of imperial intrigue that spans the universe -- rich and strange in its evocation of the history, institutions, and people of a far future age -- carries on the monumental story begun in Dune, which won the Nebula and Hugo awards from the two leading science-fiction organizations. Complex, brilliant, dramatic, Frank Herbert's new book is one of the most remarkable novels, in or out of science fiction, to be published this year. Frank Herbert, a West Coast newspaperman, has been writing science fiction for more than twenty years; his first novel, Dragon in the Sea, is still in print here and abroad. His work has drawn on his studies of Oriental religion and undersea geology; he has also been a professional photographer, TV cameraman, radio news commentator, lay analyst, and oyster diver.
