      The Godmakers
      =============
      Author - Frank Herbert.


      A wonderful little read this one following Lewis Orne from his early days as a R&R agent,( rediscovery and re-education service) where he must visit newly re-discovered planets, lost after the galactic Rim Wars and check them out for signs of hostility. The Rim Wars had almost finished off the human race and those left where going to make sure everything stayed nice and peaceful from now on, or else.

      Lewis makes an incredible discovery on his first mission and is then drafted into the IA, investigation adjustment service where he will go on to have many fascinating adventures.
      But unbeknownst to Lewis, Amal priests are quietly working to create a new god, a super deity and Lewis finds himself drawn in deep to their inner circle.

      The reader is introduced to Psi as a actual way of bringing a God into existence, Gods are not Born they are created by you and me, we do it unconsciously but sometimes when a group of believers with the knowledge get together, they can create their own god, or so the story suggests.

      Enough of the story line except to say it's a cracker of a book and worth your time.
      At 174 pages long you won't get bored and will find it a real page turner. The imagination shown by Herbert is simply superb, the dialogue flows well and the concepts and ideas and very enjoyable to read. As a Sci-Fi enthusiast I can honestly say I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

      Give it a go.
      9/10
