Hotspur Publishing is proud to announce the release of Frank Herbert: The Works, a comprehensive critical biography of Frank Herbert by new Hotspur author, Bob Bogle.
This bountiful biography documents the literary achievements – and sometimes disheartening disappointments – which comprise the legacy of this colossal figure who has for so long dominated the science fiction stage. Herbert’s most famous and compelling works, including Dune, Dune Messiah, Children of Dune, God Emperor of Dune, Whipping Star, Destination: Void and The Santaroga Barrier, are examined from a fresh perspective that establishes hidden relationships and ideological connectivity woven throughout Herbert’s oeuvre. A new understanding of his most well-known works emerges from the context of his lesser known fiction and non-fiction alike, as well as from consideration of the times and places in which he lived and worked. Answers to innumerable questions which Herbert’s legions of fans have been pondering for decades are offered here, along with extensive supporting arguments and documentation. What emerges is a new synthesis and appreciation for the expansive mind of a truly original American writer and artist.
