Sull'Autore

Frank Herbert was born Franklin Patrick Herbert, Jr. in Tacoma, Washington on October 8, 1920. He worked originally as a journalist, but then turned to science fiction. His Dune series has had a major impact on that genre. Some critics assert that Herbert is responsible for bringing in a new branch mostra altro of ecological science fiction. He had a personal interest in world ecology, and consulted with the governments of Vietnam and Pakistan about ecological issues. The length of some of Herbert's novels also helped make it acceptable for science fiction authors to write longer books. It is clear that, if the reader is engaged by the story---and Herbert certainly has the ability to engage his readers---length is not important. As is usually the case with popular fiction, it comes down to whether or not the reader is entertained, and Herbert is, above all, an entertaining and often compelling writer. His greatest talent is his ability to create new worlds that are plausible to readers, in spite of their alien nature, such as the planet Arrakis in the Dune series. Frank Herbert died of complications from pancreatic cancer on February, 11, 1986, in Madison, Wisconsin. He was 65. (Bowker Author Biography) mostra meno

Breve biografia
Né le 8 octobre 1920 au Etats-Unis à Tacoma dans l’état de Washington et mort le 11 février 1986 . Franck Patrick Herbert commence à publier de la science fiction en 1952 dans Starling stories. Le succès arrive en 1955 avec la publication de son premier roman « UNDER PRESSURE » dans Astounding magazine.Homme de science, il a effectué des recherches dans divers domaines tel que la géologie sous-marine, la botanique des régions tropicales , la psychologie , l’ethnologie…

En tant qu’expert , il a participé à l’instruction de pilotes de la NASA. Il a aussi enseigné a l’université de Seattle.Avant son décès , il vivait à Port Townsend ou il menait un projet de culture écologique ( le Projet Biosphère -à vérifier).

Il est l’auteur d’une des œuvres majeurs de la science fiction : Le Cycle de Dune(quasi 20 millions d’exemplaires, des ventes digne de la Bible). Le livre de Dune a été rédigé en 1964/65 et valut a Franck Herbert le prix Hugo et le prix Nebula .

Franklin Patrick Herbert Jr. (October 8, 1920 – February 11, 1986) was an American science-fiction author best known for the 1965 novel Dune and its five sequels. Though he became famous for his novels, he also wrote short stories and worked as a newspaper journalist, photographer, book reviewer, ecological consultant, and lecturer.

The Dune saga, set in the distant future, and taking place over millennia, explores complex themes, such as the long-term survival of the human species, human evolution, planetary science and ecology, and the intersection of religion, politics, economics and power in a future where humanity has long since developed interstellar travel and settled many thousands of worlds. Dune is the best-selling science fiction novel of all time, and the whole series is widely considered to be among the classics of the genre.

Frank Herbert was born on October 8, 1920, in Tacoma, Washington, to Frank Patrick Herbert Sr. and Eileen (McCarthy) Herbert. Because of a poor home environment, he ran away from home in 1938 to live with an aunt and uncle in Salem, Oregon. He enrolled in high school at Salem High School (now North Salem High School), where he graduated the next year. In 1939 he lied about his age to get his first newspaper job at the Glendale Star. Herbert then returned to Salem in 1940 where he worked for the Oregon Statesman newspaper (now Statesman Journal) in a variety of positions, including photographer.

He served in the U.S. Navy's Seabees for six months as a photographer during World War II, then he was given a medical discharge. He married Flora Parkinson in San Pedro, California, in 1940.

Venti sommergibili usciti in missione, venti sommergibili scoperti e distrutti dal nemico. Quattro ufficiali del Servizio Sottomarino rinchiusi nello scafo di una potente unità a propulsione atomica. Quattro uomini, uno dei quali è una spia. Quattro uomini costretti a stare insieme, costretti ad affidare la propria vita all'onestà degli altri, e portati dalle circostanze a diffidare, a sospettare, a sorvegliarsi. A bordo, un traditore. Fuori, il nemico in agguato. Nella mente, il ricordo dei venti equipaggi partiti per una missione uguale alla loro e scomparsi per sempre nelle profondità dell'oceano. Per questo allucinante romanzo di Frank Herbert non servono le solite parole, la frasi consuete. Forse il commento più azzeccato all'opera di questo dinamico scrittore è quello fatto da una rivista americana, che parlando del libro ebbe a scrivere: "Affascinante! Non crediamo esista un solo autore che non vorrebbe poter dichiarare di avere scritto lui questo eccellente romanzo". Frank Herbert ha dedicato il suo racconto agli uomini del Servizio Sottomarino degli Stati Uniti scelti come equipaggio del primo sommergibile atomico. E alla luce della recente impresa del Nautilus, "smg. RAM 2000" acquista un interessante sapore di attualità, il che non è poco soprattutto per un romanzo di fantascienza.… (altro)
