Herbert, Frank -- The Dosadi Experiment

Good old stuff from the good old days. I finally know why you should never sue a Gowachin. Really, the Gowachin legal system is the big draw here -- Herbert invents a full-bore alien legal system, something their entire culture is based on, and he has the balls to make it feel real. The actual plot concerns a tempered-by-fire race of ultimate badasses, a theme which Dune did better.
