Frank Herbert, one of the greatest science fiction authors, died in 1986. His son Brian Herbert is a widely-published science fiction novelist in his own right. Kevin J. Anderson's novels include bestsellers based on the universes of Star Wars and The X Files. Together they created PRELUDE TO DUE, LEGENDS OF DUNE and THE ROAD TO DUNE, all bestsellers set in the universe created by Frank Herbert.
'[Herbert and Anderson] do a great job in investing the plot with heft and complexity and the narrative with pace and momentum, and conveying the sheer ferocity of the betrayals and duplicities ... a rare, rattling page-turner that no Dune adherent will pass up.' -- Kirkus Reviews on SANDWORMS OF DUNE 20070615 'Frank Herbert would surely be delighted and proud of this continuation of his vision.' -- Dean Koontz 20070615 'Those who long to return to the world of desert, spice and sandworms will be amply satisfied' -- The Times 20070615 'A triumphant climax to the history of the Dune universe.' -- Bookseller on THE BATTLE OF CORRIN 20070615 'For those of us who grew up with the world of spice and sand - how gratifying to revisit characters who felt like old friends, now brought to a satisfying conclusion.' -- My Weekly 20070615
