The Collected Stories of Frank Herbert

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Frank Herbert, the New York Times bestselling author of Dune, is one of the most celebrated and commercially successful science fiction writers of all time. But while best known for originating the character of Paul Atreides and the desert world of Arrakis, Herbert was also a prolific writer of short fiction. His stories were published individually in numerous pulps and anthologies spanning decades, but never collected. Until now.

The Collected Stories of Frank Herbert is the most complete collection of Herbert's short fiction ever assembled-thirty-seven stories originally published between 1952 and 1979, plus one story, "The Daddy Box," that has never been appeared before.

At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

From Publishers Weekly

Jun 29, 2015 – Dune author Herbert (1920 1986) injects the tulp attributes of lightning-fast pacing and splashy escapism with liberal doses of humanistic philosophy in 40 future fables (published between 1952 and 1979) that carve speculative byways into both outer and inner space. "This story is about love and adventure," Herbert states in a child's talethat incorporates the discovery and intellectual hunger of genre-bending classics. Technological advancement wars with moral conscience in "Operation Syndrome"; sight and sound spectrums are subverted by alien consciousness in "Eggs and Ashes"; and Faustian curiosity evokes new mythologies from the cold heart of science in "The Heaven Makers." While time admittedly robs many plots of their original shock value, solid craft and universal themes still capture the interest of today's readers. Fascination with communication its purposes and its dangers improves the clich d "Occupation Force," and thehunger for knowledge rescues the overly flippant tone of gender politics in "The Nothing." Furious action and snappy dialogue resonate with mystical underpinnings in this generous survey, dressing the era of bug-eyed beasts and alien invasions in philosophical metaphor. This collection will grip Herbert's fans as well as other SF readers.
