Frank Herbert: The Works is a comprehensive critical biography documenting the literary achievements – and sometimes stupendous disappointments – which comprise the legacy of this colossal figure who has for so long dominated the science fiction stage. Herbert’s most famous and compelling works, including Dune, Dune Messiah, Children of Dune, God Emperor of Dune, Whipping Star, Destination: Void and The Santaroga Barrier, are recast in an original compositional and intellectual perspective that establishes the hidden interrelationships and ideological connectivity woven throughout his entire oeuvre. A new understanding of the deeper significance which riddles his most well-known works emerges from the context of his less renowned fiction and non-fiction alike, as well as from consideration of the times and places in which he worked.
