    Frank Herbert by Timothy O'Reilly

    I'm surprised (especially in myself) this hasn't been mentioned already, but Timothy O'Reilly (yes that Tim O'Reilly) wrote a biography of Frank Herbert that was published in 1981 by Frederick Ungar Publishing Co., Inc. as part of their Ungar's Recognitions series. This is no critical biography...

    Dune series: worth reading?

    I really love Frank Herbert's Dune, but for some reason I've never really felt tempted to read the rest of the series. Dune felt like a complete novel in its own way, so I guess I have a stubborn resistance to continuing, in case it upsets my view of the first book. Now I wonder if I'm just...

    Dune, book editions

    I need some help identifying the pub date of my "Book Club Edition". There is a gutter code "T16" and the only sources for gutter codes I have been able to find online are for mostly doubleday publising... which if I follow that table, T16 translates to April 1978. Is this correct??? Some pics...

    What is the Golden Path?

    Hoping this isn’t a redundant thread, but just what is the Golden Path? Children of Dune seemed so pregnant with mystery and hidden secrets to me, with this ominous (not Omnious, hehe), great, nebulous Golden Path that only Leto can see. But when I finished GodEmp, I was confused as to what...

    The White Plague

    Anyone read this book? It's not really sci-fi/fan in the sense that it takes place on earth and everything that occurs is entirely possible but its got to be my favourite FH book by far/ The basic premise is that a microbiologist who's wife and children were killed in a terrorist bombing in...

    New Dune Movie?

    Can it be true? Dune (2010) Peter Berg did Hancock and The Kingdom and they were both good. Lots of thrills and spills and decent character development IMHO.

    Dune by Frank Herbert

    As the cover humbly notes, it is "Science Fiction's Supreme Masterpiece", and on the back that it is "undoubtedly the grandest epic in science fiction". As the back cover blurb further informs me, it won the first Nebula Award and shared the Hugo Award. Wow. So as someone interested in...

    Dune review

    Dune was first published in 1965 to immediate acclaim, and it remains one of the most popular SF novels ever written. I read it several times in the late 1960s and early 1970s but not since, so when it was chosen as "book of the month" for the Classic SF discussion group, I returned to it with...
