Short biography
Né le 8 octobre 1920 au Etats-Unis à Tacoma dans l’état de Washington et mort le 11 février 1986 . Franck Patrick Herbert commence à publier de la science fiction en 1952 dans Starling stories. Le succès arrive en 1955 avec la publication de son premier roman « UNDER PRESSURE » dans Astounding magazine.Homme de science, il a effectué des recherches dans divers domaines tel que la géologie sous-marine, la botanique des régions tropicales , la psychologie , l’ethnologie…

En tant qu’expert , il a participé à l’instruction de pilotes de la NASA. Il a aussi enseigné a l’université de Seattle.Avant son décès , il vivait à Port Townsend ou il menait un projet de culture écologique ( le Projet Biosphère -à vérifier).

Il est l’auteur d’une des œuvres majeurs de la science fiction : Le Cycle de Dune(quasi 20 millions d’exemplaires, des ventes digne de la Bible). Le livre de Dune a été rédigé en 1964/65 et valut a Franck Herbert le prix Hugo et le prix Nebula .
Franklin Patrick Herbert Jr. (October 8, 1920 – February 11, 1986) was an American science-fiction author best known for the 1965 novel Dune and its five sequels. Though he became famous for his novels, he also wrote short stories and worked as a newspaper journalist, photographer, book reviewer, ecological consultant, and lecturer.

The Dune saga, set in the distant future, and taking place over millennia, explores complex themes, such as the long-term survival of the human species, human evolution, planetary science and ecology, and the intersection of religion, politics, economics and power in a future where humanity has long since developed interstellar travel and settled many thousands of worlds. Dune is the best-selling science fiction novel of all time, and the whole series is widely considered to be among the classics of the genre.

Frank Herbert was born on October 8, 1920, in Tacoma, Washington, to Frank Patrick Herbert Sr. and Eileen (McCarthy) Herbert. Because of a poor home environment, he ran away from home in 1938 to live with an aunt and uncle in Salem, Oregon. He enrolled in high school at Salem High School (now North Salem High School), where he graduated the next year. In 1939 he lied about his age to get his first newspaper job at the Glendale Star. Herbert then returned to Salem in 1940 where he worked for the Oregon Statesman newspaper (now Statesman Journal) in a variety of positions, including photographer.

He served in the U.S. Navy's Seabees for six months as a photographer during World War II, then he was given a medical discharge. He married Flora Parkinson in San Pedro, California, in 1940.
