About the Author
Brian Herbert, the author of numerous novels and short stories, has been critically acclaimed by leading reviewers in the United States and around the world. The eldest son of science fiction superstar Frank Herbert, he, with Kevin J. Anderson, is the author of Hellhole and continues his father's beloved Dune series with books including The Winds of Dune and House Atreides, among other bestsellers. He also wrote a biography of his father, Dreamer of Dune. Herbert graduated from high school at age 16, and then attended U.C. Berkeley, where he earned a B.A. in Sociology. Besides an author, Herbert has been an editor, business manager, board game inventor, creative consultant for television and collectible card games, insurance agent, award-winning encyclopedia salesman, waiter, busboy, maid and a printer. He and his wife once owned a double-decker London bus, which they converted into an unusual gift shop. Herbert and his wife, Jan, have three daughters. They live in Washington state.

Hope you buy this one. Its a must for a true Dune fan!
I give this book 2 stars for simply providing an idea of what Frank Herbert's intentions were to finish the series. I wish I had been allowed to read his raw notes rather than having to go through this book, I probably would have found it more enjoyable.
Having said that, I found Sandworms of Dune in particular a bit frustrating, mostly because I could see tiny hints about what the conclusion of the Dune series could have been like if Frank Herbert had survived long enough to write it himself. The story really called for more of the 'philosophical' style of Frank Herbert, rather than the action/space-opera style of Brian Herbert & Kevin Anderson. I'd actually be really interested in reading Frank Herbert's original outline for the story to find out how much of the overall plot was him and how much his son and Anderson made up.
