About the Author

Frank Herbert (1920-1986) created the most beloved novel in the annals of science fiction, DUNE. He was a man of many facets, of countless passageways that ran through an intricate mind. His magnum opus is a reflection of this, a classic work that stands as one of the most complex, multi-layered novels ever written in any genre. Today the novel is more popular than ever, with new readers continually discovering it and telling their friends to pick up a copy. It has been translated into dozens of languages and has sold almost 20 million copies.

This novel by Frank Herbert is one I have probably read years ago, when I went on a Frank Herbert reading craze, but, if so, I have forgotten the entire thing. Basically Earth is a shell of a planet in the distant future, a collection of all known information about anything¿it is the universe¿s total library. The novel is in two sections, both dealing with direct threats to shut down the library, and how the directors must follow the first law for the library: obey the government¿s instructions. The writing may be dated for some, but I like Herbert a lot, and it was fine by me. Also¿how can you miss too hard when you are trying to save a library?
