Happy birthday, Frank Herbert!

Happy birthday to Frank Herbert (8 October, 1920 – 11 February, 1986)!

dune trilogy by frank herbert 1

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."
- Frank Herbert, Dune (1965)

I think I read the first half dozen or so of the Dune series, but never got any further, for some reason. I did enjoy them, though. I did so like The White Plague, too.

So Happy Birthday, Mr Herbert!

I absolutely love the six Dune novels that Frank Herbert wrote. I can't stomach the ones his son did, though. So I'm with you.

The White Plague is such a powerful story!
