Sneak Preview: Navigators of Dune & Eternity's Mind by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson


Brian Herbert and I have written fourteen massive DUNE books together as well as our epic SF "Hellhole" trilogy. In between those collaborative projects, I spent a lot of time working on my "Saga of Seven Suns" space opera series, and Brian wrote his own ambitious space opera trilogy, The Timeweb Chronicles. As a very special bonus for the Adventure SF storybundle, we're including a sneak-preview excerpt of our forthcoming NAVIGATORS OF DUNE (the end of the Great Schools of Dune trilogy) as well as ETERNITY'S MIND, the final book in the Saga of Shadows trilogy. Since everyone gets those sneak previews, I decided to include Brian's TIMEWEB in the bundle, as well as our collection, TALES OF DUNE, which gathers the previously uncollected original Dune short fiction we've written over the years. – Kevin J.
