Must-have for Dune fans

May 20, 2006

The Road to Dune, By Frank Herbert, Brian Herbert & Kevin J Anderson (Hodder, $24.99):

In a companion piece to the hugely popular Dune series of science fiction books readers are taken back to the creation of the Dune novels.

Brian Herbert, son of the late Frank, and Kevin J Anderson have already told the story of the years before Dune began in the three volumes that made up Prelude to Dune.

This book includes passages dropped from the original Dune and Dune Messiah by the elder Herbert as well as letters about its original publication.

This collection is a must for any fan of the Dune series.
