The untold story of the twelve lost years between DUNE and DUNE MESSIAH based on Frank Herbert's own notes and hints.

Between the end of Frank Herbert s Dune and his next novel Dune Messiah lies a mystery: how a hero adored by a planet became a tyrant hated by a universe.

Paul of Dune begins the story of those twelve fateful years and the wars of the jihad of Paul Muad Dib.

It is an epic of battle and betrayal; of love and idealism; of ambition and intrigue. Above all, it is the story of how Paul Atreides who achieved absolute power when scarcely more than a boy changes from an idealist into a dictator who is the prisoner of the bureaucrats and fanatics who surround him.

Praise for Paul of Dune

  • [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

  • Frank Herbert would surely be delighted and proud of this continuation of his vision. - Dean Koontz

  • Those who long to return to the world of desert, spice and sandworms will be amply satisfied. - The Times

  • A triumphant climax to the history of the Dune universe. - Bookseller on THE BATTLE OF CORRIN

  • 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 on SANDWORMS OF DUNE

Brian Herbert

FRANK HERBERT, who created Dune, was born in 1920 and spent most of his early life in the Pacific Northwest of America. He was a professional photographer, journalist and occasional oyster-diver; he also had stints as a radio news commentator and jungle survival instructor. BRIAN HERBERT, his son, is a widely-published science fiction author in his own right. This is his first novel to call on his father's work: previously, he has created his own worlds, sometimes in collaboration. He has also written Dreamer of Dune, a comprehensive biography of his illustrious father. KEVIN J. ANDERSON is best known for his world-wide best-selling novels based on the universes of Star Wars and the X Files: he has been a Sunday Times number one bestseller. He is also the author of several more critically-acclaimed original novels. An expert on the US space programme, he worked at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory for ten years.
