Book Description

28 Dec 2012 The Pandora Sequence
All three novels in the Pandora Sequence by Frank Herbert & Bill Ransom, sequels to Frank Herbert's Destination: Void. The Jesus Incident—A sentient Ship with godlike powers (and aspirations) delivers the last survivors of humanity to a horrific, poisonous planet, Pandora—rife with deadly Nerve-Runners, Hooded Dashers, airborne jellyfish, and intelligent kelp. Chaplain/Psychiatrist Raja Lon Flattery is brought back out of hybernation to witness Ship’s machinations as well as the schemes of human scientists manipulating the genetic structure of humanity. Book 1 in Herbert & Ransom’s Pandora Sequence. The Lazarus Effect—In The Jesus Incident Herbert and Ransom introduced Ship, an artificial intelligence that believed it was God, abandoning its unworthy human cargo on the all-sea world of Pandora. Now centuries have passed. The descendants of humanity, split into Mermen and Islanders, must reunite … because Pandora’s original owner is returning to life! Book 2 in Herbert & Ransom’s Pandora Sequence. The Ascension Factor—Pandora’s humans have been recovering land from its raging seas at an accelerated pace since The Lazarus Effect. The great kelp of the seas, sentient but electronically manipulated by humans, buffers Pandora’s wild currents to restore land and facilitate the booming sea trade. New settlements rise overnight, but children starve in their shadows. An orbiting assembly station is near completion of Project Voidship, which is the hope of many for finding a better world. Pandora is under the fist of an ambitious clone from hibernation called The Director, who rules with a sadistic security force led by the assassin Spider Nevi. Small resistance groups, like the one led by Twisp Queets and Ben Ozette, have had little effect on his absolute power. The Director controls the transportation of foodstuffs; uprisings are punished with starvation. The resistance fighters’ main hope is Crista Galli, a woman believed by some to be the child of God. Crista pools her talents with Dwarf MacIntosh, Beatriz Tatoosh, and Rico LaPush to transcend the barriers between the different species and overthrow The Director and the sinister cabal with which he rules. Book 3 in Herbert & Ransom’s Pandora Sequence.

About the Author

FRANK HERBERT (1920–1986) created the most beloved novel in the annals of science fiction, Dune. He was a man of many facets, of countless passageways that ran through an intricate mind. His magnum opus is a reflection of this, a classic work that stands as one of the most complex, multi-layered novels ever written in any genre. Today the novel is more popular than ever, with new readers continually discovering it and telling their friends to pick up a copy. It has been translated into dozens of lan-guages and has sold almost 20 million copies. Herbert wrote more than twenty other novels, including Hellstrom’s Hive, The White Plague, The Green Brain, and The Dosadi Experiment. During his life, he received great acclaim for his sweeping vision and the deep philosophical underpinnings in his writings. His life is detailed in the Hugo-nominated biography Dreamer of Dune, by Brian Herbert. BILL RANSOM has published six novels, six poetry collections, and numerous short stories and articles. Learning the Ropes (Utah State University Press), a collection of poetry, short fiction and essays, was billed as “a creative autobiography.” His poetry received two fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, and his short fiction has appeared in Sunday editions of major newspapers across the country and was chosen three times for the PEN/NEA Syndicated Fiction Project, billed as “The Pulitzer Prize of the Short Story.” Bill has been nominated for both the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award, and his most recent collection is The Woman and the War Baby, from Blue Begonia Press. He pioneered the Poetry-in-the-Schools program for the National Endowment for the Arts in the 1970s. He worked as a firefighter and advanced life-support emer-gency medical technician in Washington state, and in El Salvador, Guatemala and Nicaragua in their civil wars through the 1980s. These experiences informed much of his writing. He recently retired as Academic Dean of Curriculum at The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington and makes his home on the Washington coast.

5.0 out of 5 stars Frank Herbert - The Pandora Sequence 6 Dec 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was afraid that 3 books merged into a single volume might prove to be a disaster - from the "sturdiness" point of view -, and that this volume might not survive a reading and fall apart. I am glad to say that I was wrong. It's a well designed volume, and totally worth the money. Needless to add anything about the author or the plot :)

4.0 out of 5 stars Much like the 60's Chevy Nova.... 22 May 2014
By michael tobin - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed the first two books in the series. However, the third was written after the death of Mr. Herbert. The plot in the first two was easy to follow, and the characters easier to comprehend. With the third book, the plot took a wild left turn and kept going. Newer characters were introduced and were very 2 dimensional. very few of the characters in the second book were carried over and it took a while before the new ones were "fleshed out" enough to understand them. A main character from book 2 showed up briefly early in book 3, then played a minor role until the end of 3. Suddenly, he becomes a major player again. I found the 3rd book tough to follow, and only finished it to get it over with....didn't really enjoy the story line as much as I have with other works of Herbert's. Even though the story is his, the style of writing is not.
As for the Nova started out bright and then fizzled at the end.

What a surprise to find additional material on the same level as Dune. The expansive universe is interesting, and the story thought provoking. Give your mind a gift and read this book.

I find his style to be very readable. Am waiting to be able to re-read the Dune series. Loved re-reading this trilogy!

Read these books a while back because the title of the first book(the Jesus incident) caught my eye. This is now one of my favorite series. I might also recommend reading Destination: Void first or after (I read it after and still thoroughly enjoyed it). This is an excellent series an I hope someday it can be made into a series similar to game of thrones or 3-4 epic movies. Either way I strongly recommend this series to all sci-fi fans.
4.0 out of 5 stars Two authors one series and it all happens 23 Jun 2014
By Peter Eerden - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
What is not to like about the Pandora series. Great plot, readability that keeps the pages turning and disparate characters that light up scenarios ably described by both authors. I have lived life with some of Franks books by my bedside table and with his demise I now feel able to add some of Mr Ransoms books as they appear. The fact that one of my favourite movies has many similarities to Pandora and Avaata makes it doubly pleasing to recommend this series. First read Destination Void though as it will set you up for the Pandora Series. Peter Eerden
