Frank Herbert will forever be known as the “author of Dune,” the science fiction masterpiece that made his career and made his name. But he was an exceptionally diverse author who wrote in numerous genres. Even at the beginning of his writing career, Frank Herbert wrote whatever inspired him, irrespective of genre, market, or audience tastes. After the success of his first novel The Dragon in the Sea (1955), Herbert wrote numerous novels and short stories that failed to find a market. He persevered until finally, seven years later, he wrote the most unpublishable novel of all, Dune-which, once it finally found a home with an obscure publisher, finally made Frank Herbert a household name synonymous with science fiction. This volume collects four of those complete, never-before-published novels written before Dune: High-Opp, a dystopian science fiction novel; Angels’ Fall, a jungle survival adventure; A Game of Authors, a Cold War thriller; and A Thorn in the Bush, a mainstream novel based on some of Herbert’s experiences in Mexico.

Many opportunities surface only once. When meeting challenges, too often you’ll only fire off one round. Make it your best shot. In 3 to Get Ready, Frank Herbert Spittle reviews life’s aspects through “the way I see it,” examining mistakes, and remedies for surviving rough patches. He offers a collection of essays, examinations, revelations, memoirs, and lamentations, all spiced with the humor found throughout his writings. The big puzzler: how to prepare the way for enjoying ones hundredth birthday. It’s a large order, but everyone alive holds the gift of thirty additional years more than generational predecessors. We’re all living longer.

Everything of beauty must have at least one flaw in it. Otherwise people do not realize how beautiful it truly is. Mrs. Ross is an expatriate American who has found a quiet life in the small Mexican village of San Juan, a place where she can be content, a place where no one knows the secrets of her shadowy past life. Until an ambitious American painter takes up residence in San Juan, attempting to depict-and expose-everything about the sleepy Mexican town. But he may have underestimated the lengths a seemingly harmless old woman will go to protect her secrets. A Thorn in the Bush is one of four previously unpublished short novels written by famed Dune author Frank Herbert. Early in his career Herbert moved his family to Mexico where he struggled to survive as a writer. This novel came from those life-changing experiences.

Le roman inédit de l’auteur de Dune. Après des décennies de désordres, un gouvernement mondial s’est imposé sur notre planète. Il tire – du moins officiellement – sa légitimité de l’opinion publique et fonde ses décisions sur des sondages quotidiens. Le Coordinateur assume l’autorité suprême sur les bureaux : Bur-Opp, le Bureau des Opinions, Bur-Cont, Bur-Psy, Bur-Trans et autres administrations , dont les dirigeants se livrent à d’incessantes luttes d’influence. Chargé d’assurer l’entente entre les bureaux, Daniel Movius est le Liaitor. Mais, victime d’un conflit avec un rival, le voilà débarqué, perdant ses privilèges de High-Opp et renvoyé dans les rangs des Low-Opps, qui occupent les emplois subalternes et survivent misérablement dans les Terriers. Ici, le mécontentement gronde, et une crise pourrait bien survenir qui risquerait de mettre en péril la civilisation sur toute la planète. Instruit par sa chute et sa découverte du monde clandestin des Seps, les Séparatistes, qui défendent la valeur de l’individu contre la machine bureaucratique, Movius reprendra-t-il le chemin des sommets ? Demeuré inédit jusqu’à ce jour, refusé à l’époque et sans doute retrouvé dans les archives d’un agent littéraire, High-Opp est le roman des débuts de Frank Herbert. Il annonce les chefs-d’oeuvre ultérieurs, dont Dune et Dosadi, par sa richesse d’idées et sa défense des valeurs humaines contre toute forme de tyrannie. Une postface de Gérard Klein replace ce roman dans son époque et tente d’expliquer pourquoi il a si longtemps été ignoré.

Now centuries have passed. The descendants of humanity, split into Mermen and Islanders, must reunite … because Pandora’s original owner is returning to life! Book 2 in Herbert & Ransom’s Pandora Sequence. The Ascension Factor-Pandora’s humans have been recovering land from its raging seas at an accelerated pace since The Lazarus Effect. The great kelp of the seas, sentient but electronically manipulated by humans, buffers Pandora’s wild currents to restore land and facilitate the booming sea trade. New settlements rise overnight, but children starve in their shadows. An orbiting assembly station is near completion of Project Voidship, which is the hope of many for finding a better world. Pandora is under the fist of an ambitious clone from hibernation called The Director, who rules with a sadistic security force led by the assassin Spider Nevi. Small resistance groups, like the one led by Twisp Queets and Ben Ozette, have had little effect on his absolute power. The Director controls the transportation of foodstuffs; uprisings are punished with starvation. The resistance fighters’ main hope is Crista Galli, a woman believed by some to be the child of God. Crista pools her talents with Dwarf MacIntosh, Beatriz Tatoosh, and Rico LaPush to transcend the barriers between the different species and overthrow The Director and the sinister cabal with which he rules.

THE TRAILER TWO SPACES DOWN a novel by Frank Herbert Spittle Boy, oh boy. Had he guessed that his knock on Mrs. Turley’s kitchen door would result in Grandfather nail-gunning him to the wall by his scrotum, Montgomery St. John would never have mounted those back porch steps the summer morning in ’62. He is discovered upstairs in bed with his high school girlfriend’s mother–by the woman’s husband. The enraged spouse is ultimately assuaged by Montgomery’s mother, who promises a visit to the wood shed, led by the hand of their family’s patriarch. Here’s novelistic story telling, painted across a broad canvass that releases crackling energy. With quick-sketch portraits of characters in conflicted scenes, The Trailer Two Spaces Down serves up one insightful anecdote after another. The novel’s protagonist struggles with extraordinary challenges and temptations on his journey from hormonal adolescence to uneasy middle age. This serious minded boy adores his mentor grandfather, a Franciscan brother living in Malibu’s retreat house. The older man works to sort out the pieces in the boy’s sexual missteps and counsels his weekend guest through sessions the young lothario recognizes as “allowing for no bullshit.” The result is a mutually arrived upon life plan. First, Montgomery will resolve to avoid near occasions of sin, then move to exert control over his future. He’ll map a career search, one that prioritizes self-fulfillment, while acknowledging service useful to the world. Through the ensuing years Montgomery strives to earn God’s approval while he struggles to work the plan. Attempts at holding to the plan’s resolutions involve unconventional tactics while he works through an anguished youth toward a tumultuous manhood. Back home from his session with Grandfather, he’s present when his catechism class hosts a visiting foreign missionary. The man’s stories capture Montgomery’s imagination and he decides to enter the seminary to become a Maryknoll priest. While a missionary in Bolivia, Montgomery’s disturbed that needy children neither read nor write. The zealous Father St. John becomes dispirited by unsuccessful attempts to rally interest in building a one-room cinder block school. He resigns the priesthood to enlist in the U.S. Navy. Serving in Viet Nam, thoughts that motivated his determination to protect native Catholics from Communist adversaries evaporate when he witnesses the carnage. A wounded warrior, tastes the anguish of “the lie of war.” Montgomery reworks the plan–he’ll throttle his intensity by observing more and participating less in life’s serious aspects. He’ll pursue the secular lifestyle. Back home, the civilian scrimps by on low wages scrambling to break into professional golf. He discovers a special lady living two spaces down in his Southern California trailer court. Following a courtship punctuated by disturbing anonymous threats, they marry. A son and daughter complete Montgomery’s secular dreams, until in their teen years the St. John’s marriage-survival needle falls ever closer to zero. A dangerous shooting, initiated by his wife, and her later attempt at suicide, have his children demonstrating insecurity that further unhinges him. Her mental condition deteriorates, and Montgomery can risk no more of his wife’s acting out her psychotic impulses. Finally her bizarre behavior traumatizes both husband and children. He seeks conservator status and she is court-ordered to psychiatric confinement. In two years she dies. Since birth, Montgomery has been denied the particulars surrounding his biological father. When Mother dies, taking with her his long sought-after secret, an accidental discovery provides the puzzle piece that leads to an individual who never knew he’d fathered a son. The man and his wife form a fast relationship with Montgomery and their new-found grandchildren. A substantial trust is arran

But somehow those areas which had been completely cleared were becoming reinfested, despite the impenetrable vibration barriers. And tales came out of the jungles . . . of insects mutated to incredible sizes . . . of creatures who seemed to be men, but whose eyes gleamed with the chitinous sheen of insects. . . .
