Go Spotting: A Whisper of Caladan Seas

Wednesday September 27, 2017

A Whisper of Caladan Seas is a part of the science fiction universe of Dune taking place some ten thousand years in the future, reports Terry2017.09.26_RoadtoDune Benson. The book includes a go-related quote from when the “good guys” are trapped in a cave. Quoting an excerpt from the book, “Squatting on the stone floor off to his left, two sullen soldiers had used their fingertips to trace a grid in the dust. With light and dark stones they played a make-shift game of go – a carryover from ancient Terra.” Benson notes that “(it’s) nice to imagine that our ancient game will still be played and on other worlds.”
