Publishers Weekly gives Sisterhood of Dune a thumbs up, calling it a “fun blend of space opera and dynastic soap opera” that “zips along faster than light.”

U.S. cover (Tor Books)

“Humans have defeated cybernetic tyrants and now are torn between rejection of all technology and using machines to improve their lives.  Raquella Berto-Anirul, first Reverend Mother of the Sisterhood that will become the Bene Gesserit, is determined to help women develop their potential, even if that means using forbidden computers to monitor a long-term human breeding program.”

U.K. cover (Simon & Schuster)

“The narrative is broken into short, jazzy chapters studded with familiar names like Atreides, Harkonnen, and Arrakis that will grab the attention of longtime Dune fans. The authors emphasize that any set of ideals can evolve into fanaticism; later installments will presumably enumerate the consequences.”

Sisterhood of Dune arrives in bookstores January 3.  Brian and Kevin will be doing parallel book tours around the US to launch the book.
