Starred Review in Publishers Weekly for Paul of Dune

The unabridged audio for PAUL OF DUNE (Macmillan Audio), read by the great Scott Brick, has just received a starred review in Publisher's Weekly:

"This epic science fiction tale fills in the time gap between Frank Herbert's Dune and Dune Messiah. Told by modern-day sci-fi legends Anderson and Brian Herbert (Frank's son), this story packs all the punch that the originals did and then some. Relating the life of Paul Muad'Dib, leader of Dune at the climax of the original novel, this novel explores the events of the Muad'Dib jihad that subsequently led to Paul's conquering the galaxy. Scott Brick delivers a powerful and entertaining reading reminiscent of a theatrical performance in a brilliant one-man show. Brick's voice is ideally suited to this extraordinary tale; no doubt he studied the prose of each novel to capture the dialect perfectly. This is a superb, solid reading that will appeal to fans and newcomers alike. A Tor Books hardcover. (Sept.)"
