When designing our “Life Lessons from the Desert” 2011 Calendar, Tim compiled the book covers of all my releases and reprints for 2010.  Another busy year!

My upcoming titles in 2011 include:

•  Hellhole (with Brian Herbert)
•  Star Challengers #2: Space Station Crisis (with Rebecca Moesta)
•  Star Challengers #3: Asteroid Crisis (with Rebecca Moesta)
•  Terra Incognita #3: The Key to Creation
•  Blood Lite 3
•  Ill Wind (with Doug Beason, reprint)
•  Captain Nemo (reprint)

And probably a few others. I hope you all have a prosperous and productive 2011, with plenty of time to read!

WINDS OF DUNE in Afghanistan

Published December 31, 2010 in Dune - 0 Comments

Brian and I just received this letter from a Marine stationed in the desert.  Perhaps not as unpleasant a place as fictional Arrakis, but still a tough place to do pleasure reading:

“Hi, I am a U.S. Marine over in Afghanistan right now and since I joined the Marines I haven’t read a book in three years. Since I have been out here for my second deployment I found your book “The Winds of Dune”. Because of your book it has got me back into reading again, every chance I get to read I take it. So I just wanted to say thanks for getting me reading again.”
