Frank Herbert captured the imagination of generations of readers. His bestselling Dune epic, a sprawling chronicle combining politics, religion, human evolution, and ecology, has become a worldwide phenomenon, winning numerous awards and selling millions of copies. Dune was made into a motion picture directed by David Lynch and has recently been produced as a three-part mini-series on the Sci-Fi Channel. Although best known for Dune, Herbert wrote numerous science fiction novels and stories before his death, including The Green Brain and The Santaroga Barrier. Brian Herbert, Frank Herbert's eldest son, chronicles his father's extraordinary life with a truthful intensity that brings every facet of his father's brilliant, and sometimes troubled, genius to full light. Brian describes how Frank's upbringing in Tacoma, Washing-ton, his early years as a reporter and editor, his time in the Navy, and the first hard years of poverty while struggling to become a published writer, helped lead to the creation of what is considered the finest science fiction novel ever written. Insightful and provocative, containing family photos never before published anywhere, Brian Herbert shares his personal perspective in this absorbing story of one of the most enigmatic and talented authors of our time.
