Description

One hundred and ten centuries from now, humanity has spread across space. And all-powerful machines rule the humans who were once their masters. It began in the Time of Tyrants, when ambitious men and women used high-powered computers to seize control of the heart of the Old Empire including Earth itself. The tyrants translated their brains into mobile mechanical bodies and created a new race, the immortal man-machine hybrids called cymeks. Then the cymeks' world-controlling planetary computers - each known as Omnius - seized control from their overlords and a thousand years of brutal rule by the thinking machines began.But their world faces disaster. Impatient with human beings' endless disobedience and the cymeks' continual plotting to regain their power, Omnius has decided that it no longer needs them. Only victory can save the human race from extermination. “Such vile villains...and such a fascinating description of splendid places.” Anne McCaffrey on HOUSE HARKONNEN “Frank Herbert would surely be delighted and proud of the continuation of his vision.” DEAN KOONTZ "[Fans] rejoice in this chance to return to one of science fiction's most appealing futures." --The New York Times Book Review on Dune: House Atreides "Extraordinarily well-developed and continually fascinating." --Kirkus Reviews on Dune: House Harkonnen "Anderson and Herbert draw emotional power from every character to fuel the complex political tale they tell." --Booklist on Dune: House Corrino "This is a good, steady, enjoyable tale." --Publishers Weekly on Dune: House Corrino
