Mentats of Dune (2014)

A new tale of Frank Herbert's Dune Universe by son Brain and co-author Kevin J. Anderson. Echos of today's tea party can be detected in the emotion Butlerians and their leader, the legless Manford Torondo whose "sacred" mission is to eliminate the last remnants of the tyranny of "thinking machine...

Hellhole - The Awakening (2013)

I think it's important that you come to the Hellhole trilogy with certain expectations. I'm not used to the style of writing Kevin J. Anderson and Brian Herbert did on this trilogy, so I ended up feeling the first novel was kind of slow, with promise of a lot more to come in the sequels. And even...

Hellhole - The Awakening (2013) by Brian Herbert

Hunters of Dune (2006)

The entire exercise is a bait and switch: Chapterhouse ends famously with Marty & Daniel reflecting:"That would've been funny. They have such a hard time accepting that Face Dancers can be independent of them." "I don't see why. It's a natural consequence. They gave us the power to absorb the me...

Sidney's Comet (2007)

...The novel contains so man impossibilities and absurdities that the only way for it to work is for the satire to grab the reader. For me it didn't. I got the impression that Herbert was aiming at something of a cross between Kafka and the kind of humour his father employed in his short story th...

Sidney's Comet (2007) by Brian Herbert

The Race for God (1990)

The problem that I have with Brian Herbert is that his ideas have such potential that he is either unwilling or unable to explore fully. His concepts are strong and start off going in an interesting direction, but end up falling short. Though fun to read at times, "The Race For God" is full of ...

The Race for God (1990) by Brian Herbert

Memorymakers (1991)

Memorymakers tells the story of an ancient race of beings called the Ch’Var, who live among humans. They look like humans, act like humans, talk like humans. Their appetites, though, are anything but human.First of two collaborations between Brian Herbert and his cousin Marie Landis.

House Corrino (2002)

“A roundtable discussion leading up to the publication of Dune: House Crappito” (April 2001):Publisher: Welcome gentlemen. So we've read the draft for the fifth novel in your Prelude to Dune series, and we'd like—Anderson: Third actually.Publisher: Excuse me?Herbert: It's the third in the seri...

House Corrino (2002) by Brian Herbert

The Battle of Corrin (2005)

This was by far the best of this trilogy, and the first half of the book felt exceptionally good. The epidemic the machines released on the human empire felt like something machines would do, and the chapters seeing the planet infected fall apart were incredibly haunting, perhaps the passages th...

The Battle of Corrin (2005) by Brian Herbert

Timeweb (2006)

The Human race is a mercantile society that has spread throughout the galaxy, but they are totally unaware of another dominion just beneath the surface of the galaxy, one that threatens to break open and hurl everything into chaos. Galactic ecologist Noah Watanabe embarks on an epic journey to re...

Timeweb (2006) by Brian Herbert

House Atreides (2000)

The Brian Herbert-Kevin J. Anderson Dune books are quite polarizing. After having read this book, I find some of the criticism valid. But it's also clear that the authors did try to flesh out the Dune universe in a way that would satisfy Frank Herbert. They're clearly not quite as good with the a...

House Atreides (2000) by Brian Herbert

Dune: La Yihad Butleriana (2006)

Paul of Dune (2008)

Sigh. Where do we start? The cardboard characters? The plot inconsistencies? The contradictions with Frank Herbert's books?Again, another unnecessary addition to the Dune series. If Brian and Kevin had put all their effort into writing Dune 7 than piddling around with two prequel trilogies, then ...

A fog had just cleared over the channel. She swam on the western side of the cordon of sea creatures, watching while a huge container ship turned away from the barricade and headed back out to sea.

Then cold dread filtered down to her marrow. As she recovered from the stunner, Michella couldn’t understand how this had happened. Her body ached and twitched, nerves misfiring, her head pounding.
