The Road To Dune - Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson

The introduction and excerpts from Dune and Dune Messiah were fascinating, as was the process of the first book actually being published, but only serially to start with! Again, the younger generation's works I can take or leave. However, they do explain how
they were working from a ton of material that Frank left, and how they went through it, scanned it so they could search it, etc. If you don't like any of the other 'new' sequels, this one is certainly worth checking out.

It also includes a 'proto' Dune novel, much shorter, that Herbert shelved and turned into his masterpiece.

Certainly worth a look.
