As the New Rebellion continues its struggle for survival, a scattered but powerful remnant of the shattered Empire seeks to destroy three precious children - among them Han and Leia's Jedi twins - who represent the next generation of Jedi Knights, in this third and final novel of the Jedi Academy Trilogy...

CHAMPIONS OF THE FORCE

Suspended helplessly between life and death, Luke Skywalker lies in state at the Jedi academy.  But on the spirit plane, Luke fights desperately for survival, reaching out psychically to the Jedi twins.  At the same time, Leia is on a life-and-death mission of her own, a race against Imperial agents hoping to destroy a third Jedi child - Leia and Han's baby Anakin - hidden on the planet Anoth.  Meanwhile, Luke's former protegé Kyp Durron has pirated the deadly Sun Crusher on an apocalyptic mission of mass destruction, convinced he is fighting for a just cause.  Hunting down the rogue warrior, Han must persuade Kyp to renounce his dark crusade and regain his lost honor.  To do it, Kyp must take the Sun Crusher on a suicide mission against the awesome Death Star prototype - a battle Han knows they may be unable to win... even with Luke Skywalker at their side!

Dune: Houses #1Cover Blurb
"[FANS] REJOICE IN THIS CHANCE TO RETURN TO ONE OF SCIENCE FICTION'S MOST APPEALING FUTURES."
- The New York Times Book Review

Frank Herbert's award-winning Dune chronicles captured the imagination of millions of readers worldwide.  By his death in 1986, Herbert had completed six novels in the series, but much of his vision remained unwritten.  Now, working from his father's recently discovered files, Brian Herbert and bestselling novelist Kevin J. Anderson collaborate on a new novel, the prelude to Dune - where we step onto the planet Arrakis... decades before Dune's hero, Paul Muad'Did Atreides, walks its sands.

Here is the rich and complex world that Frank Herbert created, in the time leading up to the momentous events of Dune.  As Emperor Elrood's son plots a subtle regicide, young Leto Atreides leaves for a years education on the mechanized world of Ix; a planetologist named Pardot Kynes seeks the secrets of Arrakis; and the eight year old slave Duncan Idaho is hunted by his cruel masters in a terrifying game from which he vows escape and vengeance.  But none can envision the fate in store for them: one that will make them renegades - and shapers of history.

HOUSE CORRINO


In subterranean labs on the planet Ix, cruel Tleilaxu overlords are busy manufacturing a synthetic form of melange known as amal.  If amal can supplant the spice from Dune, Emperor Shaddam IV will gain absolute power.  But if the plot of the Imperial House Corrino succeeds, this madness may result in the end of space travel, the Imperium, and civilization itself.  It is only Duke Leto Atreides, badly overmatched yet desperate to free the Ixians from their oppressors, who stands a chance of averting this cataclysmic tragedy...

Legends of Dune #1Cover Blurb
"This compelling saga of men and women struggling for freedom is required reading for Dune fans." - Library Journal

Frank Herbert's Dune is one of the great creations of imaginative literature, science fiction's answer to The Lord of the Rings.

Decades after Herbert's original novels, the Dune saga was continued by Frank Herbert's son, Brian Herbert, in collaboration with Kevin J. Anderson.  Working from Frank Herbert's own notes, the acclaimed authors reveal the chapter of the Dune saga most eagerly anticipated by readers: the Butlerian Jihad.

Throughout the Dune novels, Frank Herbert frequently referred to war in which humans wrested their freedom from "thinking machines."  In Dune: The Butlerian Jihad, Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson bring to life the story of that war, a tale previously seen only in tantalizing hints and clues.  Finally, we see how Serena Butler's passionate grief ignites the struggle that will liberate humans from their machine masters; here is the amazing tale of the Zensunni Wanderers, who escape bondage to flee to the desert world where they will declare themselves the Free Men of Dune.  And here is the backward, nearly forgotten planet Arrakis, where traders have discovered the remarkable properties of the spice melange...

THE FANTASTIC SAGA OF
FRANK HERBERT'S DUNE CONTINUES
IN DUNE: THE MACHINE CRUSADE...


More than two decades have passed since the events chronicled in Dune: The Butlerian Jihad.  The crusade against thinking robots has ground on for years; the human worlds have grown weary of war, of the bloody, inconclusive swing from victory to defeat.

The feersome cymeks, led by Agamemnon, hatch new plots to regain their lost power from Omnius.  Aurelius Venport and Norma Cenva are on the verge of the most important discovery in human history - a way to "fold" space and travel instantaneously to anyplace in the galaxy.

And on the faraway, nearly worthless planet of Arrakis, Selim Wormrider and his band ot outlaws take the first steps toward making themselves the feared fighters who will change the course of mankind: the Fremen.
