Notes

Description
In new, hardcover edition is the novel that shaped modern science fiction. Set on the desert planet Arrakis begins the story of a great family's plan to bring to fruition an unattainable dream. Winner of the first Nebula Award. This is the best-selling science fiction classic. It begins the story of the man known at Muad'dib & of a great family's ambition to bring to fruition humankind's most ancient & unattainable dream. "Unique-I know nothing comparable to it except Lord of the Rings."-Arthur C. Clarke. Here is the novel that will be forever considered a triumph of the imagination. Set on the desert planet Arrakis, Dune is the story of the boy Paul Atreides, who would become the mysterious man known as Maud'dib. He would avenge the traitorous plot against his noble family-and would bring to fruition humankind's most ancient and unattainable dream. A stunning blend of adventure and 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.
