Herbert and Anderson branch out from the traditional comforts of their well known Dune franchise fiction to offer up (via a different publisher - in this instance Simon & Schuster, rather than Hodder) their own originally derived SF adventure. Hellhole is a trade paperback release.
"The planet Hellhole was devastated by a large asteroid impact centuries ago and most of its native species - including a sophisticated alien civilisation - were utterly wiped out. Now Hellhole has been opened up as part of a colonization initiative by the sprawling and decadent Galactic Monarchy, but only the hardiest, or most desperate, pioneers and misfits would dare to settle there. This is their story of trying to tame a shattered world, and of uncovering secrets left behind by a devastated civilization."
