Overview



In 1965, after being rejected by more than a dozen publishing houses, a book called Dune was brought out by the Chilton Book Company. Its respected author, journalist Frank Herbert, had written Dune with nothing more in mind than to entertain his readers with the telling of a particularly complex story, one which had occupied his thoughts for more than six years. No one - not Herbert, not Chilton, not the science fiction community at the time - had any idea that Dune would be adopted and read by successive generations with a fervor bordering on cult worship. Or that it would prove to be merely the first of what have now become five international bestsellers about a desert world of the future - the planet Arrakis, called Dune.
