Sample Autograph Signature: Brian Herbert

American science fiction novelist and short stories writer. While Brian Herbert is the son of science fiction icon Frank Herbert, his work has met with critical acclaimed in its own right. With his father's success still in the future, his younger years were spent in near-poverty conditions. He graduated from high school at the age of 16 with honors, and then from the University of Callifornia at Berkeley where he received a BA in Sociology. Before beginning a writing career at nearly 30, he worked in a wide variety of jobs ranging from busboy to insurance agent. Herbert didn't know that he wanted to be a writer, but he had collected jokes which became the material for his first book, Classic Comebacks (1981). Another book of humor, Incredible Insurance Claims, followed the next year. He successfully sold both over the phone, but hired an agent and began his writing career with his first novel, Sidney's Comet, published in 1983. This was followed by The Garbage Chronicles (1985), Sudanna, Sudanna (1985), Man of Two Worlds (1986) (written with his father), Prisoners of Arionn (1987), The Race for God (1990), Memorymakers (1991) (with Marie Landis), and Timeweb (2006). In 1992, he edited The Songs of Muad'dib, a collection of his fathers poetry. He collaborated with Kevin J. Anderson on writing two trilogies of prequels to his father's landmark science fiction novel, Dune. All were published between 1999 and 2004 and became New York Times best sellers. The Road to Dune (2005) was written with Anderson and his father, and he and Anderson published Hunters of Dune in 2006. Herbert has also written a biography of his father, Dreamer of Dune: The Biography of Frank Herbert (2003), after publishing the Notebooks of Frank Herbert's Dune in 1988. Although he has no immediate plans to publish it, Herbert has created The Dune Concordance based on his father's notes.
