Read in March, 2010

Whelp this novel seeks to place the inconsistencies in the 'McDune' universe (novels by KJA and BH) by saying that the original books are written by Irulan as propaganda and are therefore less true than the substandard stories they've written. Ugh why not just write within the original canon?
I did like the storyline involving Count Fenrig and family.

25.0% "So I remember this novel more fondly than I'm experiencing reading it now. I detest that the serious changes in canon made by BH and KJA are being used invalidate the original novel."
50.0% "Caladan 'primatives' are apparently people, 'native' to Caladan. How did they suddenly become 'primitives'? Yuck at the imperialist language used. So much for 'fremen' like respect."
