Summary

Summary

Immortal aliens have observed Earth for centuries, making full sensory movies of wars, natural disasters, and horrific human activities—all to relieve their endless boredom. When they finally become jaded by ordinary, run-of-the-mill tragedies, they find ways to create their own disasters, just to amuse themselves.

But interfering with human activities is forbidden, and the authorities have been known to check on these matters from time to time. However, by the time Investigator Kelexel arrives to investigate, the trouble has been going on for a long, long time—and things are really getting out of hand.

Author Bio: Frank Herbert

Frank Herbert (1920–1986), winner of the Hugo and Nebula awards and a #1 New York Times bestselling author, was born in Tacoma, Washington, and worked as a reporter and later as an editor for a number of West Coast newspapers before becoming a full-time writer. His first science fiction story was published in 1952, but he achieved fame more than ten years later with the publication of “Dune World” and “The Prophet of Dune” in Analog. The stories were amalgamated in the bestselling novel Dune in 1965.
