Frank Herbert and Bill Ransom described the attempt by humans to colonize a.
hostile planet, Pandora, whose oceans were once inhabited by an immense and.
intelligent being, the Varec Avata. Abandoned by the intelligent machine of the.
Ship that brought them to Pandora, decimated by the effects of a deliberately.
induced genetic mutation, the human colonists had to face a tremendous struggle.
to survive, eventually destroying the planet ... and discover, to at his own expense,.
that the varec regulated the turbulence of the oceans.
the continents to the point of turning Pandora into an immense, unique and.
turbulent sea. Several centuries have passed and the survivors have evolved,.
forming two separate factions, which constitute almost two distinct races: the.
technologically advanced Sirenians, who live in the highly sophisticated depths.
of the sea; and the islanders, almost all mutated to some degree, who live in.
huge organic raft-cities, floating in the oceans of Pandora, and whose way of.
with great difficulties, although at the beginning of the novel peace reigns,.
although threatened by various factors. The sirenians try to recover, by.
orbiting the planet, the hibernation tanks abandoned by the Ship, which contain.
a great variety of non-mutated animal life, as well as humans in suspended.
animation, with which they try to restore life in the drylands of Pandora. . A.
group of Sirenians also wish to dispose of the islanders, whom they consider to.
be less than human. And as a result of another Sirenian project, the varec,.
brilliant ecologist and futurist, as well as the author of a number of.
best-sellers including the Dune saga, one of the best-selling books in all of.
science fiction history. Bill Ransom, for his part, is a Pulitzer.
Prize-nominated poet. Both joined their efforts to create, from the work of.
Herbert Destiny: the void, a trilogy acclaimed throughout the world, which.
brings together the themes of artificial intelligence and the computer turned.
into god, the conquest of a strange and dangerous world , and the evolution of.
Lazarus Effect and The Ascension Factor, which have been described as the most.
exciting adventure after Dune, are three books that cannot be missing in any.

Rather than adopting the "Collectors" method of.
describing a book, I use the publishers terms for them to provide a more.
that said, while many books state "First.
Edition", this term can be confusing. A First Edition can have many.
printings but only the First Printing is the True First Edition.
all use slightly different methods but most use a number line to define which.
with no line number or will state "First.
Edition" and list no line number. With only one exception the line numbers.
will all include a "1" for the True First Printing hence a True First Edition. Random House and.
it's subsidiaries use a line starting in "2" (recently they started using.
a "1" like other publishers) and state plainly "First Edition" if it is a first.
Edition" once they start the second printing.
editions state First Edition, as they are until a reprint is done, but this is.
not the same as what collectors call a "True First Edition". A books.
value is in the printing and the First.
Printing is the most valuable and is referred to as the "True First.
original Book Club issue released at the time the original First.
Edition is released will be described as a First Edition Book Club.
and later issues by book clubs will not include the First Edition.
only stating First Edition it will indicate a later printing or re-issue.
<> <> <> The statement of a dust.

It means that the book was selected to be a Book Club of The Month Main.
Selection as it says, in addition to the First Editions! <> <> <>.
