The original author, Frank Herbert, died after finishing the first few books. His son Brian Herbert and co author Kevin J. Anderson have since finished the series based on his scribblings, notes, and voice memos. A gargantuan task. The result can be a bit "weird" at times, but they have done an amazing job finishing the books. See More

There is an incredible amount of references to books/films/music/pop culture/historical events and figures/whatever else you can think of. Some of them are quite obvious, some you might get only a few years after reading the book - when you learn some small random tidbit of history or watch a particular scene in the movie. It's not only extremely enjoyable but also makes you feel proud when you suddenly connect the dots and figure out some obscure reference. See More
Terry Pratchett has been my favorite author overall (in tandem with Neil Gaiman) for many years and I doubt anyone will ever take his place. Though the first couple books in the series might just be a clever and humorous mockery of fantasy tropes and stereotypes, later ones delve much deeper. They might seem just funny books on the surface, but if you're willing to really _read_, they stab right at the essence of humanity with all its problems, anxieties, conflicts of conscience, everything. There is no easy black or white in Discworld, it's all grey, yellow, red, blue, pink, and even octarine. See More
