I’m pleased to write that my next book on Dune has been published by Palgrave, titled Frank Herbert’s Dune: A Critical Companion. It is part of the series Palgrave Science Fiction and Fantasy: A New Canon, which aims to provide introductory guides to classic works in the genre. It was challenging to decide what to include and exclude based on the requirements of the series and limited word count, but this would always have been the case since Dune is so complex! I hope it offers an accessible point of entry into scholarship and thinking on this bestselling novel and encourages new viewpoints in the future.
