Dune is a science fiction novel written by Frank Herbert in 1965. It is set on a planet called Arrakis. Arrakis is the most important planet in civilization because it is the only source of a spice called "melange".
The story is noted for its themes of politics, competition for limited resources, and the influence of religion on society. Frank Herbert wrote 6 Dune books:
- Dune Messiah
- Children of Dune
- God Emperor of Dune
- Heretics of Dune
- Chapterhouse Dune
Frank Herbert died before he could write any more Dune novels. Unfortunately, Kevin J. Anderson and Brian Herbert wrote a series of sequels and prequels that some fans pretend never existed.
