Simon, seriously, contact Kevin and ask him what passage in Dune or the other five books by FH
they are basing this in-universe reading on. He's obviously not going to answer my second email. (I wish I had been calmer and asked this myself rather than sending what I did.) But ask
And reread the emails I exchanged with him again
I asked Kevin how they are going to retcon having Paul visit Ecaz twice and Grumman once when Dune
, dammit!) has Duke Leto, talking to Paul, refer to their upcoming move to Arrakis as Paul's "first time off planet" (off Caladan).
And in replying he quotes Paul of Dune
The Life of Muad'Dib
One morning [Irulan] went to Paul’s Imperial office to talk with him, holding a first-edition of The Life of Muad’Dib. ... “Exactly how much is missing from this story? I’ve been talking with Bludd. In your accounts of your life, you left out vital details.”
He raised his eyebrows. “Your publication has defined my life’s story.”
“You told me you had never left Caladan before your House moved to Arrakis. Whole parts of your youth have been left out.”
is the biography of Paul written by Irulan. Evidently she based it largely on information obtained from Paul. But she is discovering that he didn't tell her everything. One of the things that he evidently didn't tell her was that he had been off Caladan before the Atreides moved to Arrakis. In fact, it appears that he told her just the opposite. We therefore can conclude that Irulan's book states that Paul never left Caladan before coming to Dune.
Now, what you have to ask yourself, Simon, is this: How is that relevant to the question I asked Kevin?
, unless he is saying that Dune IS
the book that Irulan wrote. Dune
is the only book we have or know that says Paul never left Caladan before the family relocation. Even though the titles are different, Kevin is effectively saying they are the same book.
tell me that you understand this.
