More than 100 published novels into his career, science fiction and fantasy author Kevin J. Anderson is still finding new territory to explore. After writing eleven books set in the world of Dune
, he and Brian Herbert, son of Frank Herbert, are taking a new direction. We had lots of crazy ideas we thought were fascinating but didnt necessarily fit into a Dune novel, explains Anderson. And so their new book, Hellhole
, the first of a planned trilogy, is set in an entirely new universe.
Fresh from a twelve-day national tour, Anderson is returning to his home state for a book signing tonight at 7:30 p.m. at the Tattered Cover Highlands Ranch, 9315 Dorchester Street. For Anderson, these public appearances are as valuable a part of the process of being a writer as the actual writing. At least half of my job is going out and meeting the fans, he says. Because its so much work to write the book, I cant just abandon it the minute its published. Its like having a baby and not bothering to raise it.
