Wow.

Saw it coming, and I feel bad for the guy, but...

Hey, if Frank Herbert doesn't get to live to finish his books, no one else should get to, either.

I've never agreed with anything more than I agree with this.

Apparently he shared the significant plot points of the last book with his family before he died.

Also, apparently his actual name was James Rigney.

From an old article about the man of the hour:

'"I've been warned that if I died before I finished the books, they were going to desecrate my grave," he said with a laugh.'
