this book is almost as bad as anything written by Brian Herbert. William Blake is heavily plagiarized and distorted. Skip Graham McNeil.

I love this book but one thing I don't get is why would the battle last for months when there was a God Machine literally right next to them, crewed the whole time? who cares? BLOOD FOR THE BLOOD GOD! SKULLS FOR THE SKULL THRONE!

In this masterpiece, Solzhenitsyn has orchestrated thousands of incidents and individual histories into one narrative of unflagging power and momentum. Written in a tone that encompasses Olympian wrath, bitter calm, savage irony, and sheer comedy, it combines history, autobiography, documentary, and political analysis as it examines in its totality the Soviet apparatus of repression from its inception following the October Revolution of 1917.

I was glad with how the series ended but I still think too much effort was made to tie in every concept Frank Herbert had in his setting 10,000 years from the events in this book.

however I think the whole bit about nuclear weapons was unnecessary since a simple laser and a shield does the same thing as a nuke. it seems like there were easier ways to destroy the machines.

More than two decades have passed since the events chronicled in The Butlerian 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 gains; the human worlds grow weary of war, of the bloody, inconclusive swing from victory to defeat. Get ready for Dune: The Machine Crusade.

I think the butlerian series tries a little too hard to explain in one generation how everything in the Dune universe came to be. it's a good story but I think it is pretty corny at times.

Frank Herbert's Dune is one of the grandest epics in the annals of imaginative literature. Now Herbert's son, Brian, working with Kevin J. Anderson and using Frank Herbert's own notes, reveals a pivotal epoch in the history of the Dune universe: the Butlerian Jihad, the war that was fought ten thousand years before the events of Dune - the war in which humans wrested their freedom from "thinking machines."

Robert E. Howard, best known as the creator of Conan the Barbarian, also wrote stories in a diverse range of genres. He was particularly masterful with horror stories. This 1938 spell-binding story is one of his best. In 1983, Stephen King, wrote that he considered Pigeons from Hell to be "one of the finest horror stories of our century".
