Publishers Description: It began in the Time of Tyrants, when ambitious men and women used high-powered computers to seize control of the heart of the Old Empire including Earth itself. The tyrants translated their brains into mobile mechanical bodies and created a new race, the immortal man-machine hybrids called cymeks. Then the cymeks world-controlling planetary computers - each known as Omnius - seized control from their overlords and a thousand years of brutal rule by the thinking machines began. But their world faces disaster. Impatient with human beings endless disobedience and the cymeks continual plotting to regain their power, Omnius has decided that it no longer needs them. Only victory can save the human race from extermination. Industry Reviews ...a compelling story that will transport readers back to the world that changed science fiction forever - Tattered Times, Denver, ColaradoHouse Harkonnen is compulsive reading. I certainly enjoyed meeting pardot Kynes and Liet, learning more about the Freman, as well as Gurney Halleck, Duncan Idaho and the Lady Jessica. Such vile villains...and such a fascinating description of splendid places. - Anne McCaffrey on House HarkonnenDune: House Atreides is packed with action, great story lines and twists within twists about favorite Dune villains and heroes. The result is a winning combination that keeps the two in stride with Frank Herberts vision. - Beyond the CoverHouse Atreides is a terrific prequel, but its also a first-rate adventure on its own. Frank Herbert would surely be delighted and proud of this continuation of his vision. - Dean KoontzThose who long to return to the world of desert, spice and sandworms will be amply satisfied - The TimesIn a word satisfying: all Dune fans will want to investigate, newcomers will be tempted, and it should promise fresh interest in the magnificent original series - KirkusAll these characters and themes will be familiar to fans of the original Dune novels. But new twists added by Herbert and Anderson will have fans, both old and new, turning pages. Having done their research well, Herbert and Anderson have succeeded in laying out the foundation for a new trilogy that will amplify the original novels and stand firmly as a class act in its own right. - Dorman T Schindler, St Petersburg Times on House AThis book is written in a style so close to the original that it is hard to believe Frank Herbert did not direct it through some mysterious genetic link - maybe he did. Did I like it Hey, Im a Dune addict myself. I cant wait for the sequel to the prequel - Mark Graham, Rocky Mountain News on HA
