The Book of Frank Herbert

By Frank Herbert

Rating: 4 stars

This is a collection of short stories by the author of the Dune books. I really enjoyed the collection, there were a few stories that didn’t work for me, including one about the extinction of all canines due to an over-enthusiastic genetically engineered virus, but there were many more thought-provoking, enjoyable or just darn funny stories. The last one, Occupation Force had a punchline that actually made me laugh out loud. This is a collection that shows that Herbert had a wide range in his SF and wasn’t a one-hit wonder with Dune.
