Sisterhood Of Dune
Returning to narrate is Scott Brick, who has read eleven of their previous Dune books as well as Herbert and Anderson’s most recent series, Hellhole. He’s worked with both Herbert and Anderson on developing the correct pronunciations for the thousands of characters featured in the Dune series, many of which, as the three discuss in a bonus interview included on the program, date back to Frank Herbert’s original notes and recordings.
The last Dune story was published in 2009, and in the writing of Sisterhood of Dune, Anderson and Herbert actually re-listened to the audiobook edition of The Butlerian Jihad which chronologically precedes Sisterhood of Dune to confirm several story points, characters and details that may have differed as the story went through different drafts. Fans of the series will be particularly interested by the many familiar names that populate the audiobook, including Vorian Atreides, Anari Idaho, Erasmus and the Bene Gesserit Sisterhood. “It’s very exciting for us,” said Herbert, “and we think it will be exciting for the fans, too.”
BRIAN HERBERT has been nominated for both the Hugo and the Nebula Awards. In 2003, he published Dreamer of Dune, a Hugo Award-nominated biography of his father.
KEVIN J. ANDERSON has been nominated for the Nebula Award, the Bram Stoker Award, and the SFX Reader’s Choice Award. He set the Guinness-certified world record for the largest single-author book signing.
