Editorial Reviews


Praise for God Emperor of Dune

“Rich fare...Heady stuff.”—
Los Angeles Times
“A fourth visit to distant Arrakis that is every bit as fascinating as the other three—every bit as timely.”—
Praise for Dune

“I know nothing comparable to it except
Lord of the Rings.”—Arthur C. Clarke 

“A portrayal of an alien society more complete and deeply detailed than any other author in the field has managed...a story absorbing equally for its action and philosophical vistas.”—
The Washington Post Book World

“One of the monuments of modern science fiction.”—
Chicago Tribune

“Powerful, convincing, and most ingenious.”—Robert A. Heinlein 

“Herbert’s creation of this universe, with its intricate development and analysis of ecology, religion, politics and philosophy, remains one of the supreme and seminal achievements in science fiction.”—
Louisville Times 

About the Author

Frank Herbert is the bestselling author of the Dune saga. He was born in Tacoma, Washington, and educated at the University of Washington, Seattle. He worked a wide variety of jobs—including TV cameraman, radio commentator, oyster diver, jungle survival instructor, lay analyst, creative writing teacher, reporter and editor of several West Coast newspapers—before becoming a full-time writer.

In 1952, Herbert began publishing science fiction with “Looking for Something?” in
Startling Stories. But his emergence as a writer of major stature did not occur until 1965, with the publication of Dune. Dune Messiah, Children of Dune, God Emperor of Dune, Heretics of Dune, and Chapterhouse: Dune followed, completing the saga that the Chicago Tribune would call “one of the monuments of modern science fiction.” Herbert is also the author of some twenty other books, including The White Plague, The Dosadi Experiment, and Destination: Void. He died in 1986.
