That it should still be read by so many people—more than fifty years after its publication—is a testament to its greatness. I would suggest that a major factor underlying this success is how skillfully Herbert plundered history. He did not, as so many writers do, merely break European Medieval history into a handful of pieces and reassemble them to make his story—instead he took hold of a far greater spread of history, both in time and space, and, smashing this into fragments, put together a mosaic that forms a wholly original and distinctive creation.
His noble Houses with their Landsraad evoke the Germanic princely states of the Holy Roman Empire; standing in stark contrast to the rise of Paul Atreides, from the desert, that in language and sentiment resembles that of Mohammed in Arabia.

@PhamieGow has released a piece of music that I co @PhamieGow has released a piece of music that I commissioned from her a while back—it is available now on all digital platforms. 
The conceit of #TheStoneDanceOfTheChameleon was that it was a piece of music, from my book #TheChosen, that was played, on a single instrument, by the four hands of a pair of syblings, conjoined twins. Phamie composed the piece, on the basis of what I told her about the books, and plays it on the Celtic harp, the clarsach. It is an exquiste composition having its roots not only in European classical music, but also in African kora music from Mali.
