Publisher's Summary

Frank Herbert’s magnificent Dune saga sprawls across countless planets and tens of millennia. Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson have written 13 international best-selling novels set in this epic universe. But the wealth of material leaves many side tales or interesting ideas that can be told - hors d’oeuvres to accompany the exotic main course.

Sometimes, a short story is exactly what’s needed.

Tales of Dune collects eight of Herbert and Anderson’s Dune short stories, ranging from the period of the Butlerian Jihad to the time of young Paul Atreides to a story set during the events of the novel Dune to the very end of Frank Herbert’s future history.

These are the missing pieces in the epic of Dune.

Featured Article: The Most Stellar Sci-Fi Authors of All Time


Science fiction is a genre as diverse as you can imagine. There are stories that take place in deep space, often depicting teams exploring or running away from something; stories that focus on life at the most cellular level, such as a pandemic tale; and stories that take place in times that feel similar to our own. Depicting themes of existentialism, philosophy, hubris, and personal and historical trauma, sci-fi has a cadre of topics and moods.

the boy isnt as good as his father.

i love the Dune series. you have trekkies, starwars nerds and then there's me. Dune Nerd. Frank's son doesnt quite have the writing style of his father but these little bits added flair to the story line. if you havent read or heard any of the Dune novels then this probably isnt for you.

Excellent extras

These short stories are excellent additions to the dune mythos. Especially helpful is the chronology and the notes before each story to help place it in the proper sequence of events. A must for dune fans.
