Frank Herbert's Dune ended with Paul MuadDib in control of the planet Dune. Herberts next Dune book, Dune Messiah, picked up the story several years later after Pauls armies had conquered the galaxy. But what happened between Dune and Dune Messiah? How did Paul create his empire and become the Messiah? Following in the footsteps of Frank Herbert, New York Times bestselling authors Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson are answering these questions in Paul of Dune.
The MuadDibs jihad is in full swing. His warrior legions march from victory to victory. But beneath the joy of victory there are dangerous undercurrents. Paul, like nearly every great conqueror, has enemies--those who would betray him to steal the awesome power he commands. . . .
And Paul himself begins to have doubts: Is the jihad getting out of his control? Has he created anarchy? Has he been betrayed by those he loves and trusts the most? And most of all, he wonders: Am I going mad?

times before graduating from high school. Finances were tight in those days, as
his father (with success still years away) worked on and off as a newspaperman
and sometimes solely as a writer, neither of which brought in enough money to
support a family of three children, including Brian, his younger brother, Bruce,
and their older sister, Penny.
Funds were in such short supply that Brian's mother, Beverly, would sometimes pick only a few bills out of a hat to be paid and disregard the rest. In one of the places they lived, a small shack on the ...
