4 Bakker, R. Scott THE THOUSANDFOLD THOUGHT
The Overlook Press 2008 1590201205 / 9781590201206 Paperback Very Good 
The Thousandfold Thought (Prince of Nothing Series #3) by R. Scott Bakker The conclusion to the groundbreaking epic Prince of Nothing fantasy trilogy . Editorial Reviews R. Scott Bakker's Prince of Nothing high fantasy trilogy rolls to a rousing conclusion in this full-bodied volume. The Thousandfold Thought brings to fruition what has been prophesied, but this truly epic novel also contains stunning, completely unexpected reversals. Mythos, magic, and action. - In the shattering climax to Canadian author Bakker's magnificent fantasy saga (after 2005's The Warrior-Prophet), the Holy War army has finally reached the gates of the holy city of Shimeh. The warrior-prophet, Anas rimbor Kellhus, learns that the Thousandfold Thought, a great "transition rule" that promises to transform the two warring faiths of Inrithism and Fanimry, offers the only way to bring peace to the world of E rwa and avoid a Second Apocalypse. Amid all the bloodshed and battle, Kellhus continues to respect his friend, the sorcerer Drusas Achamian, despite the conflict that arises when Kellhus takes "the whore Esmenet," hitherto Achamian's woman, as his consort. Esmenet's wavering love between the two men lends poignancy and personal depth to an epic story notable for its lack of melodrama. A large and varied supporting cast of heroes and scoundrels add further emotional realism. The Prince of Nothing trilogy is a work of unforgettable power. (Jan.)

5 Banks, Iain M. CONSIDER PHLEBAS
Gardners Books 1988 1857231384 / 9781857231380 Paperback Very Good 
"Dazzlingly original." - Daily Mail "Gripping, touching and funny." - TLS The war raged across the galaxy. Billions had died, billions more were doom ed. Moons, planets, the very stars themselves, faced destruction, cold-bloo ded, brutal, and worse, random. The Idirans fought for their Faith; the Cul ture for its moral right to exist. Principles were at stake. There could be no surrender. Within the cosmic conflict, an individual crusade. Deep within a fabled labyrinth on a barren world, a Planet of the Dead proscribed to mortals, lay a fugitive Mind. Both the Culture and the Idirans sought it. It was the fate of Horza, the Changer, and his motley crew of unpredictable mercenaries, human and machine, actually to find it, and with it their own destruction.

12 Herbert, Brian DUNE: THE BUTLERIAN JIHAD
Tom Doherty Associates 2003 0765340771 / 9780765340771 Paperback Very Good 
Frank Herbert's Dune series is one of the great creations of imaginative li terature, science fiction's answer to The Lord of the Rings. Decades after Herbert's original novels, the Dune saga was continued by Fra nk Herbert's son, Brian Herbert, in collaboration with Kevin J. Anderson. W orking from Frank Herbert's own notes, the acclaimed authors reveal the cha pter of the Dune saga most eagerly anticipated by readers: the Butlerian Ji had. Throughout the Dune novels, Frank Herbert frequently referred to the war in which humans wrested their freedom from "thinking machines." In Dune: The Butlerian Jihad, Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson bring to life the story of that war, a tale previously seen only in tantalizing hints and clues. Finally, we see how Serena Butler's passionate grief ignites the struggle that will liberate humans from their machine masters; here is the amazing tale of the Zensunni Wanderers, who escape bondage to flee to the desert world where they will declare themselves the Free Men of Dune. And here is the backward, nearly forgotten planet of Arrakis, where traders have discovered the remarkable properties of the spice melange.

13 Herbert, Brian DUNE: THE MACHINE CRUSADE
Tom Doherty Associates 2004 076534078X / 9780765340788 Paperback Very Good 
The breathtaking vision and incomparable storytelling of Brian Herbert and Kevin Anderson's Dune: The Butlerian Jihad, a prequel to Frank Herbert's cl assic Dune, propelled it to the ranks of speculative fiction's classics in its own right. Now, with all the color, scope, and fascination of the prior novel, comes Dune: The Machine Crusade. . More than two decades have passed since the events chronicled in The Butler ian Jihad. The crusade against thinking robots has ground on for years, but the forces led by Serena Butler and Irbis Ginjo have made only slight gain s; the human worlds grow weary of war, of the bloody, inconclusive swing fr om victory to defeat. The fearsome cymeks, led by Agamemnon, hatch new plots to regain their lost power from Omnius-as their numbers dwindle and time begins to run out. The fighters of Ginaz, led by Jool Noret, forge themselves into an elite warri or class, a weapon against the machine-dominated worlds. Aurelius Venport a nd Norma Cenva are on the verge of the most important discovery in human hi story-a way to "fold" space and travel instantaneously to any place in the galaxy. And on the faraway, nearly worthless planet of Arrakis, Selim Wormrider and his band of outlaws take the first steps to making themselves the feared f ighters who will change the course of history: the Fremen. Here is the unrivaled imaginative power that has put Brian Herbert and Kevin Anderson on bestseller lists everywhere and earned them the high regard of readers around the globe. The fantastic saga of Dune continues in Dune: The Machine Crusade.
