How many erogenous zones do Bene Gesserit Imprinters know?

You can go ahead and take the question, I have no idea what to ask, and my books are far, far away.

Who is the closest thing to a male sibling that Muad'dib ever had?


Duncan?

Alia...when the Baron-in-Her was feeling butch.
I have heard of only one mistake that doesn’t have an explanation for a careful reader...with an open mind. (And, no, I’m not going to tell you what it is!) —KJA

I don't like every writer's style; for instance, I have never been able to get through Ursula LeGuin, China Mieville, or Iain Banks, all of whom are critical darlings. —KJA

I...had written a bunch of Star Wars and X-Files books...that proved not just that I'm a hack, but that I could write in somebody else's universe... —KJA

Course, it depends on whether he means physically by blood, or by something else- emotion.

Omph got it. don't have PDFs on work comp for direct quote but Paul muses near the end of Dune how Fenring was the nearest thing to brotherhood he had since Fenring was a failed KH.


Paul, aware of some of this from the way the time nexus boiled, understood
at last why he had never seen Fenring along the webs of prescience. Fenring was
one of the might-have-beens, an almost Kwisatz Haderach, crippled by a flaw in
the genetic pattern -- a eunuch, his talent concentrated into furtiveness and
inner seclusion. A deep compassion for the Count flowed through Paul, the first
sense of brotherhood he'd ever experienced.

I knew it had to be something more complicated than Duncan...or anyone in Paul's "inner circle" :oops:

Dang ... there is a whole pre/se/inter-quel novel in that sentence alone.

I'm going to sneak a question in really quick:

What planet did the Bene Gesserit try to make into a no-planet, and how much energy would it have required?

Chapter House and I think it would have taken all the energy of the systems Sun.

The entire output of a G-3 sun.

But I wouldn't call Chapterhouse a no-planet, it was surrounded by a mote of no-ships, it wasn't surrounded by one giant no-field.

Al Dhanab. 8)

And how does he know this thing?

Because he IS...the one who added the entry to the List of Dune Planets page on WikiPeeeee! :D

Can't put anything past Freak and Chigger, apparently.

Half credit each? This always happens with two-part questions.

A question apiece to ye! (And I think Omph still has one in reserve.)

Sigh. That Wikipedia page includes planets from the Pre/Sequels. And a mention of House Vernius under the Ix entry.

HBJ,
feeling grumpy.
