Publisher's Summary

America is a police state, and it is about to be threatened by the most hellish enemy in the world: insects. When the Agency discovered that Dr. Hellstrom's Project 40 was a cover for a secret laboratory, a special team of agents was immediately dispatched to discover its true purpose and its weaknesses - it could not be allowed to continue. What they discovered was a nightmare more horrific and hideous than even their paranoid government minds could devise.
First published in Galaxy magazine in 1973 as "Project 40", Frank Herbert's vivid imagination and brilliant view of nature and ecology have never been more evident than in this classic of science fiction.

Aged well

I was a little wary that this book would be dated, but there was suprisingly little to give away the fact it is set in the early seventies (on earth), you could pretty much forget that side of it. Has everything you would expect if you liked Dune series, breeding programmes, sign languages etc etc. A much more fast paced story than anything I heard from Herberts stuff which I liked. Recommend it.

Frank Herbert's best book - brilliantly read

Hellstrom's Hive is a brilliant story. I think it is Frank Herbert's best book. Scott Brick reads it very well and manages to convey all the nuances of the text. Highly recommended.
