As I said elsewhere, we can be very thankful we got someone of Christopher's integrity and discipline

When we look at Dune and how Frank Herbert's son Brian has handled the legacy, we can see how differently it could have gone.

In partnership with Kevin J. Anderson, Brian Herbert has written thirteen prequels, sequels, and interquels so far (there are only six original Dune novels by Frank! With a likely seventh planned). All this is allegedly "based on his father's notes", which no one has seen and might never be released - whatever is in them, we can be sure he's added quite a lot of his own ideas.

The contrast with Christopher's very restrained and conservative approach is stark. The 1977 Silmarillion is the most "creative" he ever got.
