Nebiros hasn't never been at war with Eurasia.

Leto II is gone for good, except for OM. The "pearl" was just that; a miniscule portion of what Leto was, and not a compressed version of the whole. The pearl that the worms have do not make them Leto, or in any way similar to him.

I thought Frank Herbert was reincarnated as a talking cake.

And then thirteen years later he got a call from the estate lawyer...

Yeah, I'd take everything from that source as gospel. ;)

You'd think he'd get that right... but fair point.

I wasn't going to pollute a Frank thread with it, but the entire second half of that paragraph is a list of the wines from Frank's cellar that he drank at the wake... :wink:

I asked on the Official Dune facebook site, just got from some unknown source "he was cremated". I was looking for possibly the place they spread the ashes. A plaque or stone marker, something small, discrete, placed there for posterity.

So the parasites started sucking at Frank's estate right after he died, huh?
