A review of some works by Frank Herbert

Review by Bill Johnston

Frank Herbert is the best example I can think of of the one-book author. Again, I haven't read him exhaustively; I don't think I want to. Dune was an excellent book, and Dune Messiah and Children of Dune were good sequels as sequels go, but after that the books weren't really Dune anymore. I also read The Worlds of Frank Herbert, which didn't come off as completely serious, and Destination Void. It's hard to pick out just what was wrong with Destination Void; all I can say is that I didn't like it.
