Read full description of the books:
Masterful sf by a witty writer of great skill. Thus far, I have found Frank Herbert's 'aliens' to be the most 'alien', his attention to fine detail is to be lauded; not only did I have great interest and empathy in these myriad beings; due to the depth of Herbert's characterization I was also deeply moved by their plight. It is a real shame that this collection seems to be out of print. (if you write speculative fiction, this is a MUST-READ!)
I don't know if Frank Herbert wrote any more short stories, but if he did I'd love to track them down, as he has a sly wit absent in so many other writer's working in the same idiom.
I wasn't hugely taken by the first story 'The tactful Saboteur' but the others were wholly engrossing, and many times his 'alien' dialogue actually made me laugh out loud. Fr what its worth I do hope more people get a chance to read 'The World's of Frank Herbert', as it is a glorious planetoid, and one well worth the trip.
The final story 'Escape Felicity' is an absolute hoot!
