9780425097854: The Maker of Dune: Insights of a Master of Science Fiction
From Publishers Weekly:

Herbert, who died a year ago, wrote two collections of short stories and 22 novels, including the immensely popular, six-part Dune series. However, his short nonfiction essaysculled from newspaper features, correspondence, interviews, introductions to science-fiction anthologies and record-liner noteshave remained uncollected until now. Stimulating, cogent and thought-provoking, these pieces cover much of the same ground as Herbert's fictiondemonstrating his interest in ecology, the future, religion and the consequences of scienceand thus provide clues, as O'Reilly notes, to "the myriad threads that make up the cloth on which Frank's stories are so lavishly embroidered." One section is devoted to "The Origins of Dune," and the book includes a complete Herbert bibliography.

From Library Journal:

This collection of Herbert's nonfiction consists mostly of essays and introductions he wrote for a variety of publications; two interviews by the editor help fill in biographical details. The book is divided into seven thematic sections, for which O'Reilly provides brief comments. Among topics covered are the origins of the Dune novels and Herbert's views on ecology, pollution, possible futures, and flying saucers. A bibliogrpahy lists available American editions of each of Herbert's books, with his short stories and nonfiction listed separately. Highly recommended for most general collections. Gary D. Barber, SUNY at Fredonia Lib.
