The following is the text that will appear on the Hodder & Stoughton edition of SANDWORMS:

At last, the awe-inspiring grand climax of Frank Herbert's epic Dune Chronicles!

When Frank Herbert died in 1986, the epic he began with Dune and continued over the course of two decades to Chapterhouse: Dune remained unfinished. For nearly twenty years, millions of fans were left with a cliffhanger -- until now.

Working from Frank Herbert's last outline, his son Brian and Kevin J. Anderson have at last completed the chronological grand finale to the world's most-beloved science fiction saga. Sandworms of Dune is the conclusion to the epic, finishing the story as the original author intended.

The foe that humanity believed to be long defeated has reappeared from the edge of the universe and mankind's last defenders fear that nothing can stop it now.

Slaughtering whole planets with biological plagues, the terrible Enemy accidentally reawakened by the Honored Matres approaches ever closer to Chapterhouse, where Mother Commander Murbella and her combined force of Bene Gesserit and Honored Matres desperately gather their every defense to stop its advance. Meanwhile, Sheanna's no-ship flees from both Murbella and the Enemy, carrying the last surviving sandworms from Arrakis and the reborn heroes of past ages, among them Duncan Idaho, Paul Atreides, the Lady Jessica, the God Emperor Leto II, and even the traitor Dr. Yueh.

One of them is the ultimate Kwisach Haderach the messiah who will change the world in ways that no-one can predict. But far away on a horribly altered Caladan, the Enemy seeks to create a Kwisach Haderach of its own.

"Frank Herbert would surely be delighted and proud of this continuation of his vision." Dean Koontz
