Dune is a very good book, but I have long felt that Frank Herbert deserves more accolades for The White Plague. I haven’t read it in a while, and memory is of course very fallible, but I retain an impression of a book that manages to be both suspenseful and intelligent. And, of course, a true thriller in that the thrill is real—the threat of this sort of thing is increasingly real (though I doubt the technology is within practical reach for decades yet, fortunately!).
