Staff Reviews


"Education is no substitute for intelligence.

What do you despise? By this are you truly known.

Without change something sleeps inside us, and seldom awakens.

Give as few orders as possible... Once you've given orders on that subject, you must always give orders on that subject.

Repression makes a religion flourish.

Humans are almost always lonely.

The least favorable condition controls the growth rate.

An ecosystem maintains a certain fluid stability that can be destroyed by a misstep in just one niche.

You can't buy security."

This is an ecological text, one that can teach you not what to think, but how. Any other words I write about it are nothing compared to it, hastily exampled in the above quotes, which should be absorbed as they come in their own environment, and with much reflection.

Description


Here, in a beautiful new hardcover edition, is the novel that to this day continues to shape modern science fiction. Set on the desert planet Arrakis, a world more awesome than any other in literature, Dune begins the story of the man known as Maud'dib -- and of a great family's plan to bring to fruition humankind's most ancient and unattainable dream.

A stunning blend of adventure, mysticism, environmentalism and politics, Dune won the first Nebula Award, shared the Hugo Award, and formed the basis of what is undoubtedly the grandest epic in science fiction. Frank Herbert's death in 1986 was a tragic loss, yet the astounding legacy of his visionary fiction will live forever.
