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 languages 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 emergency 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.

A bit of mistaken identity (from a New Scientist book review), but have been an old SF addict and this one was refreshing. Good writing, not facile (aka sexist) like old SF. Addictive scenario, when's the next one due?

(I did read Dune & sequels years ago).

Brilliant man, thinker and writer. Reading his works is like eating a fine meal: complexity and simplicity combine to form an organic whole. What an experience!

The Lazarus Effect:
Copyright: 1983

From the back cover:

A World of Water

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, owner is returning to life.
*****************************************************************************

The Lazarus Effect is the sequel to the Jesus Incident. An exact time frame from the Jesus Incident is not given. However, it’s clear that hundreds of generations have passed.

On the now all sea world of Pandora the Islanders live on floating man-made islands while the Mermen spend their entire lives under the sea in structures they’ve built. The ship has left the system and inexplicably left behind the hibernation tanks in orbit around Pandora.

The Islanders and Mermen have a sort of rivalry, they’re not in open conflict, but they don’t trust each other either.

The Mermen are attempting to change Pandora and bring back the land. They hope to do this by restoring the kelp/avata to its previous state of consciousness. Mermen also hope to bring down the hyp tanks. Although they don’t state how they plan to do this. It takes very advanced rocketry to even put something in orbit, let alone rendezvous and bring it back to land. The idea that the hyp tanks could just float down of parachutes, doesn’t work unless the tanks had heat shields, which somehow I doubt would have been realistic.

Overall, the idea of putting people underneath the sea doesn’t hold water. The pressure would be such that humans couldn’t build stable structures or be able to dive.
