Frank Herbert, best-selling author of the Dune Chronicles, has, during a fruitful career, produced many other novels in which he displays his consummate skill as a writer of extraordinary imagination by creating memorable characters who inhabit strange, distant worlds – or other dimensions of our own world. This volume collects four of Herbert's best non-Dune novels, each a finely wrought example of the best fiction being written today.
Franklin Patrick Herbert, Jr. (1920–1986) was a critically acclaimed and commercially successful American science fiction author. Though also a short story author, he is best known for his novels, most notably Dune and its five sequels. The Dune saga, set in the distant future and taking place over millennia, deals with themes such as human survival and evolution, ecology, and the intersection of religion, politics and power. Dune itself is the "best-selling science fiction novel of all time," and the series is widely considered to be among the classics in the genre.
