French GEoD

Postby Omphalos » 26 May 2010 18:20

Here is a link to GEoD's publishing history.

http://www.isfdb.org/cgi-bin/pl.cgi?LCCLDDNTML1992

Ive seen it in more than one place where the French volume is noted as book 5 ("tome 5"). I was wondering if one of our French users can tell me if this is a mistake that has just been carried forward, or is maybe one of the earlier books broken into two parts, or something? GEoD in the English set is book 4.

Thanks!

I think it must be because the two parts of Dune(the first)are often printed out as two separate books.
I remember having an old edition with Dune 1 and 2 just before Dune Messiah, I should be able to remember what the publisher was to verify this

Interesting! How were they divided? Books 1 and 2 of Dune in the first volume, Book 3 and the Appendices in the second?

Dune divides almost perfectly right down the middle - The chapter where Gurney meets with Tuek is practically at the half way point and would have made an awesome final chapter for Dune: Book 1. It makes me wonder at what point it became 3 books.

I thought that was done for serialization in magazine form.

IIRC it was serialised in 2 parts? (Dune World and Prophet of Dune?)

Yar. The initial U.S. appearance was in Analog:

"Dune World": 3 parts (1963-64)

"Prophet of Dune": 5 parts (1965)

"Dune World" ends after 22 chapters. The final scene is of Paul and Jessica after their escape, discussing the death of Duke Leto (and what the hell they're going to do next, of course).

I guess FH or the editor did the dividing into three books when it was novelized then?

22 is the end of 'Dune' (as in 'Book 1')
