I found Book 2 for 50 pesos!

After church last Sunday, my brother had his shoes cleaned, and I found myself lost in Booksale, the second-hand book store that holds, within its walls, a vortex that traps me and removes all sense of time and place. The short of it is: nawili ako. Imagine the thrill I had when I found a copy of Dune Messiah by Frank Herbert! For 50 pesos!

My friend Juanchi Pablo introduced me to Dune, which I wrote about in 2014. It is a book that opened my eyes to the joys of reading science fiction and fantasy.

Dune Messiah

Paul Artreides's sister Alia is now grown up, a sarcastic, powerful, intuitive Reverend Mother, trained in the ways of the Bene Gesserit. Paul is now called the Muad'dib, the Emperor of the known worlds in the galaxy, and he has to confront opposition, intrigue, and mystery that comes with his powers.

  1. Hi Lance. I'm looking for replacement copies of the Dune books that got wet due to my housemate's carelessness. Please buy if you see any copies at the Booksale and I'll go get them from you: Dune, Dune Messiah, Children of Dune, God Emperor of Dune.
    Buti nalang yung hardbound na Heretics of Dune and Chapterhouse: Dune nag-survive naman.

    1. Sayang! Kumpleto ka pala, Ate! I'll be on the lookout for them.

  2. That is, of course, after you already have your own copy of the book/s. I've always wished there was a "Buy for me at the Booksale" group that I could join so that I can look out for books others want when I browse and others could look out for the books I want.

    Also a "There's a sale!" group to alert me of when to make a special visit to stores that I don't normally go to.
