I'm deep into Dune, which is pretty good. Every time I see "Stilgar" I think of Shergar, though -- Shergar was the stallion kidnapped by the IRA circa 1980. He never turned up again, and the rumors were considered true -- that during the kidnap he hit his head on something sticking out of the van and poked his eye out. That's not a fatal injury by any means, but the IRA flipped out and killed him.
I'd better add that there might very well be information that I haven't heard. That would not surprise me in the least.
