Sample Autograph Signature: Frank Herbert

American science fiction writer. Frank Herbert became famous with his ecological science fiction novel Dune, set in a world of giant sandworms. The epic adventure won the first Nebula for Best Novel, shared the Hugo, and gained a cult status among science fiction readers. Herbert's bestseller was followed by five sequels. Often Herbert's stories dealt with great cycles of development, environmental as well as cultural. Frank Patrick Herbert was born in Tacoma, Washington, in 1920, and had wide-ranging interests. He attended the University of Washington for a year in 1946 before becoming a reporter. He worked as a reporter and editor of various west coast newspapers from 1939 to 1969. However, with the success of Dune in 1965, he was able devote his attention to his novel writing, but he did continue to lecture and act as a social and ecological consultant. A strong believer in self-reliance and ecological harmony, Herbert generated his own energy on his small farm with solar heating, methane gas from chicken dung, and wind power (from an improved windmill design for which he was awarded a U.S. patent). Herbert wove many of his ecological ideas into all his novels. Throughout his work Herbert provides his readers with complex adventure plots and probing questions about the cosmos, human nature, and society. This content has been provided by HGBooks.
