Launching the Blog Again

Last year's blog leading up to the release of HUNTERS OF DUNE was so well-received, Brian and I decided we just had to do it again. Our schedules have been very busy, and we'll take a few entries here just to catch you all up on our various activities.

I have also been posting a blog on MySpace, primarily about writing tips and some of my other projects. You can read past entries here (

In the meantime, here is the final text that appears on the dust jacket of the US edition of SANDWORMS:

Hunters of Dune and the concluding volume, Sandworms of Dune, bring together the great story lines and beloved characters in Frank Herbert's classic Dune universe, ranging from the time of the Butlerian Jihad to the original Dune series and beyond. Based directly on Frank Herbert's final outline, which lay hidden in a safe-deposit box for a decade, these two volumes will finally answer the urgent questions Dune fans have been debating for two decades.

At the end of Frank Herbert's final novel Chapterhouse: Dune, a ship carrying a crew of refugees escapes into the uncharted galaxy, fleeing from a terrifying, mysterious Enemy. The fugitives used genetic technology to revive key figures from Dune's past -- including Paul Muad'Dib and Lady Jessica -- to strengthen their chances of survival by using their special special talents to meet the incredible challenges of the journey.

Sandworms of Dune will reveal the origin of the Honored Matres, the tantalizing future of the planet Arrakis, the final revelation of the Kwisatz Haderach, and the resolution to the war between man and machine. This breathtaking new novel in Frank Herbert's Dune series has surprises and plot twists galore -- enough to please even the most demanding reader.
