Fiction I Title PS3558.E63D86 2008 813.54dc22 2007040248INTRODUCTION by Brian HerbertD une Messiah is the most misunderstood of Frank Herberts novels The reasons for this are as fascinating and complex as the renowned author himself.Just before this first sequel to Dune was published in 1969, it ran in installments in the science fiction magazine Galaxy The serialized Dune Messiah was named disappointment of the year by the satirical magazine National Lampoon The story had earlier been rejected by Analog editor John W Campbell, who, like the Lampooners, loved the majestic, heroic aspects of Dune and hated the antithetical elements of the sequel His readers wanted stories about heroes accomplishing great feats, he said, not stories of protagonists with clay feet.The detractors did not understand that Dune Messiah was a bridging work, connecting Dune with an as yet uncompleted third book in the trilogy To get there, the second novel in the series flipped over the carefully crafted hero myth of Paul MuadDib and revealed the dark side of the messiah phenomenon that had appeared to be so glorious in Dune Many readers didnt want that dose of reality they couldnt stand the demotion of their beloved, charismatic champion, especially after the author had already killed off two of their favorite characters in Dune, the loyal Atreides swordmaster Duncan Idaho1 and the idealistic planetologist Liet Kynes.But they overlooked important clues that Frank Herbert had left along the way In Dune, when Liet Kynes lay dying in the desert, he remembered these words of his father, Pardot, spoken years before and relegated to the back reaches of memory No terrible disaster could befall your people than for them to fall into the hands of a Hero Near the end of the novel, in a foreshadowing epigraph, Princess Irulan described the victorious MuadDib in multifaceted and sometimes conflicting terms as warrior and mystic, ogre and saint, the fox and the innocent, chivalrous, ruthless, less than a god, than a man And in an appendix to Dune, Frank Herbert wrote that the desert planet was afflicted by a Hero.These sprinklings in Dune were markers pointing in the direction Frank Herbert had in mind, transforming a utopian civilization into a violent dystopia In fact, the original working title for the second book in the series was Fool Saint, which he would change two times before settling on Dune Messiah But in the published novel, he wrote, concerning MuadDib He is the fool saint, The golden stranger living forever On the edge of reason. Let your guard fall and he is there The author felt that heroic leaders often made mistakes mistakes that were amplified by the number of followers who were held in thrall by charisma As a political speechwriter in the 1950s, Dad had worked in Washington, D.C., and had seen the megalomania of leadership and the pitfalls of following magnetic, charming politicians Planting yet another interesting seed in Dune, he wrote, It is said in the desert that possession of water in great amount can inflict a man with fatal carelessness This was an important reference to Greek hubris Very few readers realized that the story of Paul Atreides was not only a Greek tragedy on an individual and familial scale There was yet another layer, even larger, in which Frank Herbert was warning that entire societies could be led to ruination by heroes In Dune and Dune Messiah, he was cautioning against pride and overconfidence, that form of narcissism described in Greek tragedies that invariably led to the great fall.Among the dangerous leaders of human history, my father sometimes mentioned General George S Patton because of his charismatic qualitiesbut often his example was President John F Kennedy Around Kennedy, a myth of kingship had formed, and of Camelot The handsome young presidents followers did not question him and would have gone virtually anywhere he led them This danger seems obvious to us now in the cases of such men as Adolf Hitler, whose powerful magnetism led his nation into ruination It is less obvious, however, with men who are not deranged or evil in and of themselvessuch as Kennedy, or the fictional Paul MuadDib, whose danger lay in the religious myth structure around him and what people did in his name.Among my fathers most important messages were that governments lie to protect themselves and they make incredibly stupid decisions Years after the publication of Dune, Richard M Nixon provided ample proof Dad said that Nixon did the American people an immense favor in his attempt to cover up the Watergate misdeeds By amplified example, albeit unwittingly, the thirty seventh president of the United States taught people to question their leaders In interviews and impassioned speeches on university campuses all across the country, Frank Herbert warned young people not to trust government, telling them that the American founding fathers had understood this and had attempted to establish safeguards in the Constitution.In the transition from Dune to Dune Messiah, Dad accomplished something of a sleight of hand In the sequel, while emphasizing the actions of the heroic Paul MuadDib, as he had done in Dune, the author was also orchestrating monumental background changes and dangers involving the machinations of the people surrounding that leader Several people would vie for position to become closest to Paul in the process they would secure for themselves as much power as possible, and some would misuse it, with dire consequences.After the Dune series became wildly popular, many fans began to consider Frank Herbert in a light that he had not sought and which he did not appreciate In one description of him, he was referred to as a guru of science fiction Others depicted him in heroic terms To counter this, in remarks that were consistent with his Paul Atreides characterization, Frank Herbert told interviewers that he did not want to be considered a hero, and he sometimes said to them, with disarming humility, Im nobody.Certainly my father was anything but that In Dreamer of Dune, the biography I wrote about him, I described him as a legendary author But in his lifetime, he sought to avoid such a mantle As if whispering in his own ear, Frank Herbert constantly reminded himself that he was mortal If he had been a politician, he would have undoubtedly been an honorable one, perhaps even one of our greatest U.S presidents He might have attained that high office, or reached any number of other lofty goals, had he decided to do so But as a science fiction fan myself, Im glad he took the course that he did Because he was a great writer, his cautionary words will carry on through the ages and hopefully influence people in decision making positions, causing them to set up safeguards that will protect against abuses of power, both by leaders and by their followers.As you read Dune Messiah, enjoy the adventure story, the suspense, the marvelous characterizations and exotic settings Then go back and read it again Youll discover something new on each pass through the pages And youll get to know Frank Herbert better as a human being.Brian Herbert Seattle, Washington October 16, 2007EXCERPTS FROM THE DEATH CELL INTERVIEW WITH BRONSO OF IXQ What led you to take your particular approach to a history of Muaddib A Why should I answer your questions Q Because I will preserve your words.A Ahhh The ultimate appeal to a historian Q Will you cooperate then A Why not But youll never understand what inspired my Analysis of History Never You Priests have too much at stake to .Q Try me.A Try you Well, again why not I was caught by the shallowness of the common view of this planet which arises from its popular name Dune Not Arrakis, notice, but Dune History is obsessed by Dune as desert, as birthplace of the Fremen Such history concentrates on the customs which grew out of water scarcity and the fact that Fremen led semi nomadic lives in stillsuits which recovered most of their bodys moisture.Q Are these things not true, then A They are surface truth As well ignore what lies beneath that surface as as try to understand my birthplanet, Ix, without exploring how we derived our name from the fact that we are the ninth planet of our sun No no It is not enough to see Dune as a place of savage storms It is not enough to talk about the threat posed by the gigantic sandworms.Q But such things are crucial to the Arrakeen character A Crucial Of course But they produce a one view planet in the same way that Dune is a one crop planet because it is the sole and exclusive source of the spice, melange.Q Yes Let us hear you expand on the sacred spice.A Sacred As with all things sacred, it gives with one hand and takes with the other It extends life and allows the adept to foresee his future, but it ties him to a cruel addiction and marks his eyes as yours are marked total blue without any white Your eyes, your organs of sight, become one thing without contrast, a single view Q Such heresy brought you to this cell A I was brought to this cell by your Priests As with all priests, you learned early to call the truth heresy.Q You are here because you dared to say that Paul Atreides lost something essential to his humanity before he could become Muaddib.A Not to speak of his losing his father here in the Harkonnen war.Nor the death of Duncan Idaho, who sacrificed himself that Paul and the Lady Jessica could escape.Q Your cynicism is duly noted.A Cynicism That, no doubt is a greater crime than heresy But, you see, Im not really a cynic Im just an observer and commentator I saw true nobility in Paul as he fled into the desert with his pregnant mother Of course, she was a great asset as well as a burden Q The flaw in you historians is that youll never leave well enough alone You see true nobility in the Holy Muaddib, but you must append a cynical footnote Its no wonder that the Bene Gesserit also denounce you.A You Priests do well to make common cause with the Bene Gesserit Sisterhood They, too, survive by concealing what they do But they cannot conceal the fact that the Lady Jessica was a Bene Gesserit trained adept You know she trained her son in the sisterhoods ways My crime was to discuss this as a phenomenon, to expound upon their mental arts and their genetic program You dont want attention called to the fact that Muaddib was the Sisterhoods hoped for captive messiah, that he was their kwisatz haderach before he was your prophet.Q If I had any doubts about your death sentence, you have dispelled them.A I can only die once.Q There are deaths and there are deaths.A Beware lest you make a martyr of me. I do not think Muaddib Tell me, does Muaddib know what you do in these dungeons Q We do not trouble the Holy Family with trivia.A Laughter And for this Paul Atreides fought his way to a niche among the Fremen For this he learned to control and ride the sandworm It was a mistake to answer your questions.Q But I will keep my promise to preserve your words.A Will you really Then listen to me carefully, you Fremen degenerate, you Priest with no god except yourself You have much to answer for It was a Fremen ritual which gave Paul his first massive dose of melange, thereby opening him to visions of his futures It was a Fremen ritual by which that same melange awakened the unborn Alia in the Lady Jessicas womb Have you considered what it meant for Alia to be born into this universe fully cognitive, possessed of all her mothers memories and knowledge No rape could be terrifying.Q Without the sacred melange Muaddib would not have become leader of all Fremen Without her holy experience Alia would not be Alia.A Without your blind Fremen cruelty you would not be a priest Ahhh, I know you Fremen You think Muaddib is yours because he mated with Chani, because he adopted Fremen customs But he was an Atreides first and he was trained by a Bene Gesserit adept He possessed disciplines totally unknown to you You thought he brought you new organization and a new mission He promised to transform your desert planet into a water rich paradise And while he dazzled you with such visions, he took your virginity Q Such heresy does not change the fact that the Ecological Transformation of Dune proceeds apace.A And I committed the heresy of tracing the roots of that transformation, of exploring the consequences That battle out there on the Plains of Arrakeen may have taught the universe that Fremen could defeat Imperial Sardaukar, but what else did it teach When the stellar empire of the Corrino Family became a Fremen empire under Muaddib, what else did the Empire become Your Jihad only took twelve years, but what a lesson it taught Now, the Empire understands the sham of Muaddibs marriage to the Princess Irulan Q You dare accuse Muaddib of sham A Though you kill me for it, its not heresy The Princess became his consort, not his mate Chani, his little Fremen darlingshes his mate Everyone knows this Irulan was the key to a throne, nothing .Q Its easy to see why those who conspire against Muaddib use your Analysis of History as their rallying argument A Ill not persuade you I know that But the argument of the conspiracy came before my Analysis Twelve years of Muaddibs Jihad created the argument Thats what united the ancient power groups and ignited the conspiracy against Muaddib. Such a rich store of myths enfolds Paul Muaddib, the Mentat Emperor, and his sister, Alia, it is difficult to see the real persons behind these veils But there were, after all, a man born Paul Atreides and a woman born Alia Their flesh was subject to space and time And even though their oracular powers placed them beyond the usual limits of time and space, they came from human stock They experienced real events which left real traces upon a real universe To understand them, it must be seen that their catastrophe was the catastrophe of all mankind This work is dedicated, then, not to Muaddib or his sister, but to their heirsto all of us.DEDICATION IN THE MUADDIB CONCORDANCE AS COPIED FROM THE TABLA MEMORIUM OF THE MAHDI SPIRIT CULTMuaddibs Imperial reign generated historians than any other era in human history Most of them argued a particular viewpoint, jealous and sectarian, but it says something about the peculiar impact of this man that he aroused such passions on so many diverse worlds.Of course, he contained the ingredients of history, ideal and idealized This man, born Paul Atreides in an ancient Great Family, received the deep prana bindu training from the Lady Jessica, his Bene Gesserit mother, and had through this a superb control over muscles and nerves But than that, he was a mentat, an intellect whose capacities surpassed those of the religiously proscribed mechanical computers used by the ancients.Above all else, Muaddib was the kwisatz haderach which the Sisterhoods breeding program had sought across thousands of generations.The kwisatz haderach, then, the one who could be many places at once, this prophet, this man through whom the Bene Gesserit hoped to control human destinythis man became Emperor Muaddib and executed a marriage of convenience with a daughter of the Padishah Emperor he had defeated.Think on the paradox, the failure implicit in this moment, for you surely have read other histories and know the surface facts Muaddibs wild Fremen did, indeed, overwhelm the Padishah Shad dam IV They toppled the Sardaukar legions, the allied forces of the Great Houses, the Harkonnen armies and the mercenaries bought with money voted in the Landsraad He brought the Spacing Guild to its knees and placed his own sister, Alia, on the religious throne the Bene Gesserit had thought their own.He did all these things and .Muaddibs Qizarate missionaries carried their religious war across space in a Jihad whose major impetus endured only twelve standard years, but in that time, religious colonialism brought all but a fraction of the human universe under one rule.He did this because capture of Arrakis, that planet known often as Dune, gave him a monopoly over the ultimate coin of the realmthe geriatric spice, melange, the poison that gave life.Here was another ingredient of ideal history a material whose psychic chemistry unraveled Time Without melange, the Sisterhoods Reverend Mothers could not perform their feats of observation and human control Without melange, the Guilds Steersmen could not navigate across space Without melange, billions upon billions of Imperial citizens would die of addictive withdrawal.Without melange, Paul Muaddib could not prophesy.We know this moment of supreme power contained failure There can be only one answer, that completely accurate and total prediction is lethal.In 1965 Frank Herbert published Dune After it was heralded as a masterpiece of science fiction, he wrote the briefer Dune Messiah in 1969, concentrating eponymously on Paul Atreides, and then, sensing the sales potential, added sequels They were continued by his son, culminating in the just published finale, Sandworms of Dune Now, 38 years after its publication, four narrators capture Dune Messiah on discs, while listeners, with no glossary, try to recall the meaning of its esoteric nomenclature The audio gets off to a lively start as the book opens with nearly all conversation, playing up the camaraderie between the narrators who have partnered on several other readings of classic sci fi novels While the cast works well together, some of the male narrators emphasize a stately dullness Kellgren, the sole feminine voice, supplies real emotion and a true sense of awe Oct Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc All rights reserved.
