Frank Herbert (spelling of the last name - Herbert; English Frank Patrick Herbert; October 8, 1920 - February 11, 1986) - American science fiction writer, was born in Tacoma (Washington state), graduated from the University of Washington in Seattle. After that, he worked as a reporter and editor for several newspapers on the West Coast of the United States, and taught at the university. For a time he was an environmental consultant for the Lincoln Foundation and also served in Vietnam and Pakistan. $$ 0 $$ The first fiction novel to be published is "Looking for Something?", Which was published in Startling Stories magazine in 1952, at the age of thirty-two. During the 50-ies published in magazines and a half dozen stories and the novel "The Dragon in the Sea" ("The Dragon in the Sea", 1955). This novel was later also published under the title "Under Pressure". However, the writer gained wide popularity after the publication in 1963 in the Analog magazine of the novel "Dune World", which became the first part of the novel "Dune". Later in the same magazine began the publication of the sequel, which was called "The Prophet of Dune" ("The Prophet of Dune"). In 1965, these two parts were merged into one full-length novel, which was released as a separate edition. The work has received worldwide recognition and has been awarded such prestigious awards in the field of science fiction as the Nebula and Hugo awards. The novel quickly became one of the most popular science fiction novels of the 20th century. In the following years, the continuation of the story of the sandy planet comes out from under the pen of Herbert. As a child, Frank Herbert has always loved to read. He loved books by HG Wells, Jules Verne, Edgar Burroughs. On his eighth birthday, Frank Herbert said in front of the holiday table: "I will be a writer." And so it happened. Frank always wanted to study what interested him. For many years he had a difficult time, he changed job after job and moved from city to city. Herbert was so independent that he refused to write for a separate market. He wrote only what he wanted to write. It took Frank Herbert 6 years of research and writing to complete a novel as multi-layered and complex as Dune. When Dune was finished, Frank Herbert began looking for a publisher who would agree to publish the books, but 23 publishers refused the writer. Fortunately, a publisher was found who agreed to publish this novel. The writer received a fee of only $ 7,500 for this. After Frank Herbert divorced his first wife Flora Parkinson, he met his second wife-to-be, Beverly Stewart, whom he met at the University of Washington in a creative writing class in 1946. Frank and Beverly had two sons, Brian, who was born in 1947, and Bruce, who was born in 1951. Frank also has a daughter from his first marriage named Penny, who was born in 1942. In the years to come, Frank and Beverly will have a pretty rough time. To give her husband freedom and support in his writing, Beverly gives up his creative career. Beverly and Frank were a real writing team, as he discussed every aspect of his stories with his wife, and she also edited his work. Brian Herbert would later describe their story in the biography of the writer "Dune Dreamer". After Beverly Herbert died, Frank married a third time, to Theresa Sheckelford. Frank Herbert also collaborated with other writers. For example, with Bill Ransom, Herbert has written novels such as The Jesus Incident, The Lazarus Effect, and The Ascension Factor. The last published work of the writer is the novel "The Man of Two Worlds" ("The Man of Two Worlds"), co-written with his son, Brian. © Ivan Kolesnik Library Awards and prizes: * Nebula - 1965 for the novel "Dune"; * Hugo - 1966 for the novel "Dune"; * Seiun - 1974 for Dune * Apollo - 1978 for Hellstrom`s Hive; Unofficial author page: http://www.arrakis.ru/
