"New" Trilogy ;D

Postby Kloud » 10 Jan 2012 21:22

After the great success with critics and public of the novels in the popular universe of Dune written by Ryan Herbert and Kermit J. Manson, the two authors are releasing "Mattai of Dune" their new book after two years since the pubblication of "Sisterhood of Dune" and the bankruptcy of Thor Press.

The authors declared that "Mattai of Dune" will be the first installment of a trilogy named "Soldiers of Dune" set in the last dune-continuity span of time they had not dealt with their novels: since August 1st 10191 to 29th December 10192, according to the Official Imperial Calendar (downloadable from the authors' site for 5.99 $).

The novel goes into the most dramatic period for the Atreides, after Duke Leto's fall. Mattai, a youngblood Atreides soldier, is dying in the smugglers' cave and his only solace is the Gurney's baliset. However it's not his end. He's miraculously resurrected by Lichna, a Rossak Sayyadina, an ancient order of faith healers that had been using melange's power to assist their alleis, the smugglers.
But everything has a price. Lichna pretends that Mattai will help her in a dangerous and mysterious mission in the deep desert.

Ryan explained that the plot line is founded on a mysterious note written by Frank Herbert himself.
Unlike previous times, Ryan and Kermit accepted to not hold back the note. Here's a sample of the document.

RICE KRISPIES
BEER
CAR WAX


"It could seem very cryptic, but this note is the key to really understand many hidden backgrounds. Thanks to this note we will change many point of views about Dune." Explained Kermit.

The authors keep a great reserve about the plot, however Ryan had let out an indiscrection, before Kermit hushed him.

"You will be upsetted! You couldn't even imagine who's Mattai's father."

There are few days to the release of "Mattai of Dune" and they're already talking about trilogy's next novel.

"We will call it 'Nefud of Dune'." Confirmed Ryan with his nose into a red-stained handkerchief.

:lol: :clap: :clap:
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
