So in effect, the chunky egomaniac is saying that any bad bits in the Dune 7 novels are because of Frank.
anybody believe Frank intended to make Duncan the super-duper-Jesus ?
I'm sure something grand was in store for Duncan, but not that.
Even if he was a new KH, wouldn't he be severely handicapped by the Siona-gene? (I suppose being a "super" KH gets around that...)
That's kind of the point, and the point to The Scattering. Besides, his OM is fail, compared to Paul or Leto.
It seems rather obvious to me that a KH could be useful, even after the God-Emperor, but his chief purpose of prescience would be severely limited... It would be helpful if I knew how Duncan was defined as a "super" KH in the sequels, since I don't think anyone said his abilities were prescience-related.
