Gods and Dragons (Wake The Dragon #3) by Kevin J. Anderson (book review).

‘Gods And Dragons’ is book three in the ‘Wake The Dragon’ series, so you need to read ‘Spine Of The Dragon’ and ‘Vengewar’ before getting on to this one or it will make no sense. This is the dramatic conclusion that brings all the various plot threads to a head and gives you that cathartic […]

Dune: The Graphic Novel, Book 1 by Frank Herbert. Adapted by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson (graphic novel review).

The original novel ‘Dune’ is now, reputedly, the best-selling Science Fiction book in the world. Despite being partly serialized in ‘Analog’, at least twenty publishers rejected it and then went on to win both the Hugo and Nebula Awards. Just goes to show. Apart from the five sequels written by Frank Herbert, there are also […]

Dune: The Duke Of Caladan (The Caladan Trilogy book 1) by Brian Herbert & Kevin J. Anderson (book review).

To paraphrase Liet-Kynes, ‘Against all better judgement, I liked book.’ Put another way, there’s a fair deal of antipathy directed at Messrs Herbert and Anderson for the way they’ve plundered Herbert Sr’s universe for the material needed to pump out, on a literally industrial scale, one pot-boiler scifi novel after another. Where the original ‘Dune’ […]

Navigators Of Dune: Book Three Of The Schools Of Dune Trilogy by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson (book review).

  ‘Navigators Of Dune’ is the third book in ‘The Schools Of Dune Trilogy’ and the 13th prequel to ‘Dune’ by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson, so if you’re new to the series, don’t start here.

Mentats Of Dune (Dune Schools Of Dune Trilogy 2) by Kevin J. Anderson and Brian Herbert (book review).

‘Dune’ was a great Science Fiction novel by Frank Herbert that won both the Hugo and Nebula Awards. It was followed by some interesting sequels also written by Frank and then by some longer and less interesting ones. A vast interstellar empire with assorted groups competing for power offers plenty of scope for stories so […]

Sisterhood Of Dune by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson (book review).

There are lots of ‘Dune’ books now. I read the originals by Frank Herbert up to ‘God Emperor Of Dune’ but gave up on the next one half-way through, bored with the complicated plot. Brian, son of Frank, has since teamed up with Kevin J. Anderson to write many more, which I’ve avoided on the […]
