"Unique... in the depth of its characterization and the extraordinary detail of the world it creates.  I know nothing comparable to it except The Lord of the Rings."
Arthur C. Clarke

DUNE

Selected in a readers' poll in 1975 as the greatest novel of imagination of all time, DUNE's creation of a richly detailed world utterly unlike our own is only the beginning of its achievement.  Arrakis, the desert planet called DUNE, is the home of the unforgettable family Atreides, the splendid Fremen people, the awesome sandworms - creatures so huge that one might swallow a hundred men in a gulp.

Dune is the source of brilliant survival techniques devised by the desert dwellers, the focus of political intrigues of exquisite subtlety, and the nexus of a centuries-old plot to create a superbeing.

DUNE

Arrakis, the desert planet called Dune, has been the site of a terrible war and the source of a merciless holy crusade that swept the Galaxy.  All this has been the result of the ascension to absolute power of the man known as Muad'dib.

The unforgettable human drama at the center of the vast natural and political forces coming to bear on this unique planet is among the most moving in all of the literature of imagination.  DUNE MESSIAH is the story of a man of overawing wisdom who finds himself subject to human - and more than human - frailties.  It is a novel of high adventure and of philosophical and emotional depth.

DUNE MESSIAH is the second novel in Frank Herbert's great trilogy that begins in the most honored of all novels of imagination, DUNE.  The ultimate destiny of this unique world is reached in CHILDREN OF DUNE, which will be published in the spring of 1976.
