On Wednesday, at 6 p.m. on August 5th, Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson will be at Boston Public Library's Copley Main Library to herald the release of their new book,
The Winds of Dune. If you have any interest in Science Fiction, you know about the Dune Saga which was conceived by Frank Herbert, Brians's father, back in 1965 with the publication of Dune. Dune won awards such as the Hugo Award (1966) and the inaugural Nebula Award (1965) for Best Novel. It was made into a movie in 1984 and you may remember it as a television miniseries in 2000.

When Frank passed on in 1986, fans had to wait until 1999 when the series was continued by his son, Brian, and Kevin J. Anderson (author of Star Wars and X-Files spin-off novels) using Frank's notes. The Winds of Dune is their latest addition to the saga.

In case you have not been enticed to pick up the series but like reading fiction placed in the future and dealing with human survival, ecology, evolution, potitics, power, and even a little religion, add this classic series to your reading list.

So, If you are a fan or even a Science Fiction guru, make tracks to the Copley Branch on August 15 SH
