Frank Herbert - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (3673 words)
Herbert began researching Dune in 1959 and was able to devote himself more wholeheartedly to his writing career because his wife returned to work full time as an advertising writer for department stores, becoming the main breadwinner during the sixties.
Herbert later related in an interview with Willis E. McNeilly that the novel originated when he was supposed to do a magazine article on sand dunes in Florence, Oregon, but he got too involved in it and ended up with far more raw material than needed for a single article.
In recent years, Brian Herbert (Frank's son) and Kevin J. Anderson, have used those notes to write a successful series of novels based on the pre-Dune materials and are preparing to write two post-Chapterhouse novels (Hunters of Dune and Sandworms of Dune) based on the "Dune 7" outline written by Frank Herbert.
