'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
'Herbert and Anderson have met the challenge admirably. Within a web of relationships in which no act has simple of predictable consequences, they lay the foundation of the Dune saga . . . A terrific read in its own right . . . Will inspire readers to turn, or return, to its great predecessor.' Publishers Weekly
Frank Herbert (1920-86) was born in Tacoma, Washington and worked as a reporter and later editor of a number of West Coast newspapers before becoming a full-time writer. His first sf story was published in 1952 but he achieved fame more than ten years later with the publication in Analog of 'Dune World' and 'The Prophet of Dune', amalgamated into the Hugo and Nebula-winning novel Dune in 1965.
