if it weren't for Hellstrom's Hive, I'd think Dune made Herbert a one-hit wonder.
Yes, but what a wonder. We should all be so lucky.

I have to disagree about The White Plague. It was the first Herbert I read after Dune and I found it very compelling. I've read it many times and it also helped me decide to read Biochemistry at uni.

Anyone have any opinions on these books sitting on my shelf that haven't been read yet?

The Santaroga Barrier
The Dosadi Experiment
Whipping Star
The Jesus Incident (w/ Bill Ransom)
Destination: Void

and isn't one a prequel to another or something??
I recently read The Santaroga Barrier. I enjoyed the premise and found it engaging, though the characters weren't as well developed as his characters in Dune. Still a good read.
