Summary
  • "Though he is best remembered for Dune, Frank Herbert was the author of more than twenty books at the time of his tragic death in 1986, including such classic novels as The Green Brain, The Santaroga Barrier, The White Plague, and The Dosadi Experiment." "Brian Herbert, Frank Herbert's eldest son, tells the provocative story of his father's extraordinary life in this honest and loving chronicle. He has also brought to light all the events in Herbert's life that would find their way into speculative fiction's greatest epic."
  • "From his early years in Tacoma, Washington, and his education in the navy and at the University of Washington, Seattle, through the years of trying his hand as a TV cameraman, radio commentator, reporter, and editor of several West Coast newspapers, to the difficult years of poverty while struggling to become a published writer, Herbert worked long and hard before finding success after the publication of Dune in 1965. Brian Herbert writes about these years with a truthful intensity that brings every facet of his father's brilliant, and sometimes troubled, genius to full light."--BOOK JACKET
