Even the author of DUNE--the best-selling science fiction novel of all time--had trouble getting published. At first.

Frank Herbert wanted to be a writer, and though today his name is practically synonymous with world-building and epic science fiction, Herbert didn't start out with a particular genre in mind. He wrote mainstream stories, mysteries, thrillers, mens' adventure pieces, humorous slice-of-life tales. And, yes, some science fiction.

For the first time, this collection presents 13 completed short stories that Frank Herbert never published in his lifetime. These tales show a great breadth of talent and imagination. Readers can now appreciate the writing of one of the field's masters in a kaleidoscope of new stories.

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.

His major novels included THE DRAGON IN THE SEA, SOUL CATCHER (his only non-science fiction novel), DESTINATION: VOID, THE SANTAROGA BARRIER, THE GREEN BRAIN, HELLSTROM'S HIVE, WHIPPING STAR, THE EYES OF HEISENBERG, THE GODMAKERS, DIRECT DESCENT, and THE HEAVEN MAKERS. He also collaborated with Bill Ransom to write THE JESUS INCIDENT, THE LAZARUS EFFECT, and THE ASCENSION FACTOR. Frank Herbert's last published novel, MAN OF TWO WORLDS, was a collaboration with his son, Brian.
