Franklin Patrick Herbert Jr. (October 8, 1920 – February 11, 1986) was an American science fiction writer best known for the 1965 novel Dune and its five sequels. Though he became famous for his long novels of fantasy, he was also a newspaper journalist, photographer, short story writer, book reviewer, ecological consultant, and lecturer. The Dune saga, set in the distant future, and taking place over millennia, deals with complex themes, such as human survival and evolution, ecology, and the intersection of religion, politics, and power. 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.
