SciFi, Horror, and Fantasy news and fun.
They don’t speak French
Wrong. Melange means mix
The closer meaning is “mix”…. The french verb to mix is mélanger
Infinite diversity in infinite combination. Also, the spice agony is synonymous with ancient mysterys. I am writhing in the sand with a agony of my own. My worms were dragons in the heavens, revering our coming, much as shi hulud worshiped to the heavens revering the stars for bringing muadib.
To me it’s one of the two most obvious jokes in sci-fi and fantasy. The other one being the Númenóreans being the legend of Atlantis.

Because nobody reads those books.
Because it’s so obvious
Arghhhhhh are you serious?! That would mean opening a book. You can’t expect people to read a book. What’s wrong with you.
Coincidentally opening a book would also have taught you that melange means mixture. If Frank Herbert had meant variety he would probably have used the french word variété. Which, you guessed it, means variety. Although that would have been freakin obvious then.
“Variety is the spice of life ” has been a saying of mine since I learned this way back when…
I don’t speak French
Because its not accurate???
I don’t speak French.
Touche’! Well done!
I sense a sequel with a world with spice called masala
Well done and welcome to Dune conversations Frank Herbert had pre 1986
The spice melange has a variety of effects depending on how it’s used. The navigators are created using it and when Lady Jessica used it while she was pregnant, it caused Alia to be born with a fully developed adult mind or something.
It seems like it’s more of a parallel to oil and the battles in the Middle East, that’s just my take on it.
Because say la vie. Which is French for such is life
Greatest Sci fi film ever made
Melange means a mixture or melding.
