We have a free full-color DUNE CHRONOLOGY pamphlet that lists all of the Dune novels, with the back-cover summaries, in chronological order. Eight full pages, including SISTERHOOD OF DUNE, which comes out on January 3, and the next two volumes in the trilogy, MENTATS OF DUNE and NAVIGATORS OF DUNE.

Today they were enduring another funeral for a dead Sister, one more tragic death from poison…another failure to create the second Reverend Mother.
Crisis. Survival. Advancement.
Raquella didn’t know how many more lives she could justify losing in order to reach the elusive goal. Optimistic and determined, her best trainees continued to believe in her.
And they died.
Call it a loss-leader. Or a glitch. Or over-enthusiastic lowest-price-matching bots having a duel between bookstores. Whatever the reason, amazon is having a ridiculous sale on my novel HELLHOLE with Brian Herbert. The novel—new, hardcover, first editions—is selling for only $1.77 (and free shipping if you’re an amazon Prime customer).
Publishers Weekly gives Sisterhood of Dune a thumbs up, calling it a “fun blend of space opera and dynastic soap opera” that “zips along faster than light.”
U.S. cover (Tor Books)
Tor Books is in the process of reissuing their complete set of our new DUNE novels with striking new designs of the covers. All artwork by Stephen Youll except for Winds of Dune and Sisterhood of Dune, by Steve Stone.
My new hard science fiction story TAU CETI, with sequel novelette written by Steven Savile, arrives November 22.
The generation ship Beacon has voyaged for two centuries to reach a new planet at Tau Ceti, but just as the Beacon is about to arrive at their new home away from home, distant Earth develops faster-than-light ships…and a ruthless dictator wants to lay claim to their dream.
Tor Books has just confirmed the cities where Brian Herbert and I will be signing copies of SISTERHOOD OF DUNE this January. In order to make twice as many stops, in twice as many cities, and see twice as many fans, we are going on parallel tours. Don’t worry, we’ll each carry signed book plates from the other, so readers can get both signatures.
