Only the most desperate colonists dare to make a new home on Hellhole. Reeling from a recent asteroid impact, tortured with horrific storms, tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, and churning volcanic eruptions, the planet is a dumping ground for undesirables, misfits, and charlatans…but also a haven for dreamers and independent pioneers. Against all odds, an exiled general named Adolphus has turned Hellhole into a place of real opportunity for the desperate colonists who call the planet their home. While the colonists are hard at work developing the planet, General Adolphus secretly builds alliances with the leaders of the other Deep Zone worlds, forming a clandestine coalition against the tyrannical, fossilized government responsible for their exile. What no one knows is this: the planet Hellhole, though damaged and volatile, hides an amazing secret. Deep beneath its surface lies the remnants of an obliterated alien civilization and the buried memories of its unrecorded past that, when unearthed, could tear the galaxy apart.

 Kevin J Anderson
Birth: 27 Mar 1962 Racine, Wisconsin, USA
Kevin J. Anderson's novels have been on national bestseller lists twenty-seven times.  His Star Wars - Jedi Academy trilogy were the three top-selling science fiction novels of 1994. 

Anderson signed the largest science fiction contract in publishing history, to write a prequel trilogy to Frank Herbert's classic SF novel Dune.  Co-written with Frank Herbert's son Brian.  Anderson has also written numerous bestselling comics, including Star Wars and Predator titles for Dark Horse and X-Files for Topps.

He is married to Rebecca Moesta.

 Brian Herbert
Birth: 29 Jun 1947 Seattle, Washington, USA
Brian Herbert is the oldest son of noted science fiction author Frank Herbert who wrote the Dune series of books.  Brian has a younger brother Bruce and an older sister Penny.  Brian was an honor student and he graduated early from high school when he was 16.  He married young as well to his wife Jan.  He went to the University of California at Berkeley and received a BA in Sociology.  He has been married for over 30 years and they have three daughters, Julie, Kimberly and Margaux.

Brian did not begin writing until he was nearly 30 years old.  His first two books were Incredible Insurance Claims and Classic Comebacks.  He kept a journal which he used to write a biography of his father Frank Herbert entitled Dreamer of Dune.  Brian Herbert used the entire Dune series to write the Dune Concordence.  He used this as a reference book when writing the Prelude to Dune series with Kevin J Anderson.

  • I try to maintain page numbers for audiobooks even though obviously there aren't any. I do this to keep track of pages read and I try to use the Kindle version page numbers for this.
  • Synopses marked with an asterisk (*) were generated by an AI. There aren't a lot since this is an iffy way to do it - AI seems to make stuff up.
  • When specific publication dates are unknown (ie prefixed with a "Cir"), I try to get the publication date that is closest to the specific printing that I can.
  • When listing chapters, I only list chapters relevant to the story. I will usually leave off Author Notes, Indices, Acknowledgements, etc unless they are relevant to the story or the book is non-fiction.
  • Page numbers on this site are for the end of the main story. I normally do not include appendices, extra material, and other miscellaneous stuff at the end of the book in the page count.
