Author: Frank Herbert
Date: 1970-00-00
Type: NOVEL
Series: Jorj McKie
Webpages: Wikipedia-EN
Language: English
Note: Berkley released two publications that state "Sixth printing." The first is an undated edition which is 176 pages and the second is the 1977 edition at 188 pages. The differences are:
  • It was typeset with one less line of text per page.
  • The story is now sectioned into chapters, starting at the top of a page and leaving space at the end to start the next chapter atop the next page.
  • Fictional quotes and epigrams were added at the beginning of each chapter.
  • Story text is not the same either which, along with the previously noted materials, explains the additional 1977©
