WINDS OF DUNE is 14th Consecutive Bestselling Novel in Sci-Fi Series

A Winning Streak for THE WINDS OF DUNE
14th Consecutive Bestselling Novel in Sci-Fi Series

In 1976, Frank Herbert’s CHILDREN OF DUNE became the very first genre science fiction novel to hit the New York Times bestseller list. The new novel, THE WINDS OF DUNE (Tor, August), by Herbert’s son Brian and coauthor Kevin J. Anderson, debuts this week on the list, marking the 14th consecutive DUNE novel to be a New York Times bestseller — a winning streak unmatched by any other original science fiction series.

THE WINDS OF DUNE is Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson’s direct sequel to the elder Herbert’s classic DUNE MESSIAH, telling the story of how Lady Jessica, Duncan Idaho, and other familiar characters struggle to hold a turbulent empire together after the disappearance of Paul Muad-Dib.

Frank Herbert published the original novel DUNE in 1965, which won both the Hugo and Nebula Awards, the highest accolades in the genre. It is believed to be the best-selling original SF novel of all time and is widely considered to be science fiction’s equivalent to The Lord of the Rings in its importance. Publishers Weekly said of THE WINDS OF DUNE “Fans of the original Dune series will love seeing familiar characters, and the narrative voice smoothly evokes the elder Herbert’s style.” WINDS is the pair’s 10th novel in the series.
