About Author
Frank Herbert was educated at the University of Washington, Seattle. He worked a wide variety of jobs - including TV cameraman, radio commentator, oyster diver, jungle survival instructor, lay analyst, creative writing teacher, reporter and editor of several West Coast newspapers - before becoming a full-time writer.

Journalist, ecologist, conservationist, and bestselling novelist FRANK HERBERT captured the imagination of entire generations. Novels like The Dosadi Experiment and The White Plague explored science's effect on society. The Green Brain and The Dragon in the Sea introduced Herbert's main theme: how societies and individuals respond to changing or threatening environments. In Dune, winner of both the Hugo and Nebula awards, Herbert expanded this theme to create a series that has fascinated more readers than any other contemporary work of the imagination. Among Herbert's other works were The Eyes of Heisenberg; Santaroga Barrier; Whipping Star; Project 40; Threshold; five additional novels in the Dune series, and two anthologies of short fiction.

Born October 8, 1920.
He died February 11, 1986.
