The non-yearly release schedule must be killing the Hack's ego since he could probably shit out enough "novel's in 2yrs time to fill the Library of Congress.
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?"

I saw that too.. I was at the used Book store the other day... I grabbed a mini hardcover DUNE copy made by covercraft. Anyway.. I was looking at the other hard covers... KJA's books are are fairly plentiful in the half price hardback and 2 dollar and under hardback section.. hellhole ... the sage of a bunch of suns... and this Map of all things series all are already there in boat loads, so is the McDune shit.

Mentats of Dune will suck... hopefully enough they wont be allowed to pen anymore nonsense.
