Frank Herbert: The Unpublished Stories

Postby Hunchback Jack » 27 Jul 2016 01:58

The Hacks Twain have released a collection of never-published stories written at the beginning of Frank Herbert's career. Available in paperback and Kindle from Amazon; probably other formats from other vendors.

https://www.amazon.com/Frank-Herbert-Un ... 61475408X/

Under other circumstances, these stories might be fascinating, but sadly, this collection is published by Wordfire Press, so it is forever tainted and not for sale.

Oh, and it looks like after publishing four early novels of Franks' without their name on it, the Hacks' egos couldn't tolerate being uncredited any longer, and put their names on the cover of this one as "editors". I prefer the term "corpse-rapers", because fuck them.

I'm still very proud of The Quarry but … let's face it; in the end the real best way to sign off would have been with a great big rollicking Culture novel.

No money to the Hacks, so I will not buy it. Besides, if they have edited the stories they are for ever tainted and I will never be able to wonder how much they have edited.

Fair point.
