Dune was 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 the spice 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
  • Dune Messiah
  • Children of Dune
  • God Emperor of Dune
  • Heretics of Dune
  • Dune: Chapterhouse

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.
