goto the following URL, it opens in a new window so you can stay here and rant afterwards that they still have no notes.

Letters from Brian and Kevin

It explains that he had NO INTENTION of doing Dune 7 because he had no idea where Frank was going. Instead he would do the Prelude to Dune series, and then maybe the Legends of Dune.

BUT in 1996 he found the notes Frank wrote for Dune 7...
In Brians words these notes were...

"""Inside were papers and old-style floppy computer disks that included comprehensive notes for an unpublished "DUNE 7" -- the long-awaited sequel to CHAPTERHOUSE: DUNE! Now Kevin and I knew for certain where Frank Herbert had been headed, and we could weave the events of our prequels into a future grand finale for the series."""

So once they had the COMPREHENSIVE notes in hand they wrote the prequels first "In Their Own Style" but with Franks notes. weaving those events to Suit the Grand Finale that FRANK WANTED.. but in their writing style.
