    Well, looky here:

    Hmm. Might be worth picking up. I don't see any evidence of "edited by KJA", either, so it might be safe to actually spend money on.

    I'm still very proud of The Quarry but … let's face it; in the end the real best way to sign off would have been with a great big rollicking Culture novel.

    Stumbled across good review of this. This looks like it warrants a purchase.

    The name Atreides was also consciously chosen. It is the family name of Agamemnon. Says Herbert, "I wanted a sense of monumental aristocracy, but with tragedy hanging over them--and in our culture, Agamemnon personifies that."

    Ghanima said. "We Atreides go back to Agamemnon..."
    Distracted, Irulan asked: "Who's Agamemnon?"
