Authors Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson are in the midst of writing Hunters of Dune and Sandworms of Dune, the two-volume chronological grand climax to the Dune Saga based on Frank Herbert’s outline for ‘Dune 7′. The cool thing about this is that they are letting readers in on the process of its creation through the Dune 7 Blog. This is the same thing they did when writing Dune: The Machine Crusade and it was apparently well-received. There are some interesting bits on their blog including three cover paintings and the book jacket copy. KJA even offers a little insight into his being commissioned to write a sequel to A.E. van Vogt’s Slan.
