The Santaroga Barrier - Frank Herbert

Macmillan Publishers / —
Santaroga seemed to be nothing more than a prosperous farm community. But there was something different about Santaroga.
Santaroga had no juvenile delinquency, or any crime at all. Outsiders found no house for sale or rent in this valley, and no one ever moved out. No one bought cigarettes in Santaroga. No cheese, wine, beer or produce from outside the valley could be sold there. The list went on and on and grew stranger and stranger.
Maybe Santaroga was the last outpost of American individualism. Maybe they were just a bunch of religious kooks…
Or maybe there was something extraordinary at work in Santaroga. Something far more disturbing than anyone could imagine.

The Green Brain - Frank Herbert

Macmillan Publishers / —
In an overpopulated world seeking living room in the jungles, the International Ecological Organization was systematically exterminating the voracious insects which made these areas uninhabitable. Using deadly foamal bombs and newly developed vibration weapons, men like Joao Martinho and his co-workers fought to clear the green hell of the Mato Grosso.
But somehow those areas which had been completely cleared were becoming reinfested, despite the impenetrable vibration barriers. And tales came out of the jungles… of insects mutated to incredible sizes… of creatures who seemed to be men, but whose eyes gleamed with the chitinous sheen of insects…
A fascinating examination of the fragile balance between consciousness, man and insect from one of the best-loved science fiction creators of all time.
