2.5 stars. Final review, first posted on Fantasy Literature:

“Dune: Red Plague” is a brief episode in an ongoing conflict in the DUNE series universe between an anti-technology group, led by Manford Torondo, and pro-technology people, personified by Josef Venport, the selfish CEO Directeur of Venport Holdings, a huge interstellar commercial empire with a large fleet of spaceships. Manford lost his legs in a bombing that killed his inspiration and mentor, Rayna Butler, and he views himself as responsible for leading humanity away from the temptations of technology. Venport, who cruelly calls Manford a “legless freak” and the “barbarian half-Manford”, considers the Butlerian group a bunch of zealots who want to “reduce humanity to a primitive agrarian culture scattered across the galaxy.” Venport has blockaded the planets that have taken the Butlerian pledge.

However, the anti-tech people on one planet, Walgis, are dying of the terrible Red Plague. Dr. Rohan Zim, an altruistic Suk doctor, convinces Venport ― with a fair amount of difficulty ― to loan one of the Venport spaceships to him to bring a life-saving vaccine to the people of Walgis, arguing that maybe it will change their minds about the benefits of technology and will make Venport look humane.

It’s a rather confusing and opaque world if you’re not already familiar with the DUNE universe and how it’s developed under the authorship of Brian Herbert (Frank Herbert’s son) and Kevin J. Anderson. Words and concepts like Mentat, Suk doctor and Butlerian creed play a significant role but often get little or no explanation. I dimly remember these things from reading Dune years ago, but I think a reader would have to know this universe and the later entries in this series a lot better to make this story work for you, and even then, it’s a thin, rather predictable tale, and isn’t a complete story in itself. “Dune: Red Plague” probably won’t be of much interest to anyone except fans of the ongoing DUNE series.
