Last year, millions of fans finally witnessed the stunning conclusion to Frank Herbert’s classic DUNE saga with the New York Times bestseller Sandworms of Dune (Tor 2007.) Written by the dynamic writing duo, Brian Herbert, Frank Herbert’s son, and Kevin J. Anderson, Sandworms of Dune answered a myriad of burning questions and brought to an end a literary tour-de-force that has endured for over 40 years.
But many unanswered questions remain, including what happened during the twelve-year period from Frank Herbert’s Dune to Dune Messiah. Fans have also long been intrigued with the enigmatic Paul Muad’Dib, the heir to the House of Atreides. Now, Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson answer these questions and chronicle Paul’s younger years in PAUL OF DUNE.
It’s been over forty years since Frank Herbert’s classic Dune was published, and over twenty since the publication of the last book in the original Dune cycle, but Dune and its subsequent novels remain perennially popular. In recent years, Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson have collaborated on their own series of incredibly successful Dune novels, in which they filled in the back stories of the franchise’s central characters. They have a talent for blending their unique writing style while still maintaining the integrity of Frank Herbert’s original Dune novels. With PAUL OF DUNE, they continue Frank’s—and their own—legacy. (booksincmv)
