Dune Series

Deluxe Edition

Frank Herbert

En el desértico planeta Arrakis, el agua es el bien más preciado y llorar a los muertos, el símbolo de máxima prodigalidad. Pero algo hace de Arrakis una pieza estratégica para los intereses del Emperador, las Grandes Casas y la Cofradía, los tres grandes poderes de la galaxia. Arrakis es el único origen conocido de la melange, preciosa especia y uno de los bienes más codiciados del universo. Al duque Leto Atreides se le asigna el gobierno de este mundo inhóspito, habitado por los indómitos Fremen y monstruosos gusanos de arena de centenares de metros de longitud. Sin embargo, cuando la familia es traicionada, su hijo y heredero, Paul, emprenderá un viaje hacia un destino más grande del que jamás hubiese podido soñar. Mezcla fascinante de aventura, misticismo, intrigas políticas y ecologismo, Dune se convirtió, desde el momento de su publicación, en un fenómeno de culto y en la mayor epopeya de ciencia-ficción de todos los tiempos.

Dune series by Herbert also brilliant. He advocates placing limits on machine intelligence.      fuente
As a teenager, I was a total Dune fanatic; my friends and I used to have mock knife fights where the killing blow had to be delivered slowly to get through the other guy's personal shield, which means a lot if you've read the book 2/      fuente
When I got this book out of the library at age 12, my father remarked, It's sinful that so large a book should be devoted to science fiction. Little was he to know that this book, full of wonderful concepts about how to come to grips with a world out of our control, would play so large a role in his son's life. After I graduated from college, a friend who was editing a series of critical monographs about science fiction asked me if I'd like to write a book about Frank Herbert. I agreed, and it was that choice that set me on the path to becoming a writer. In the course of writing the book, I got far deeper into Herbert's ideas than I had reading his books growing up. The core message of all Herbert's work is that we can't control the future, but we can control our response to it, surfing the edge of change and risk.      fuente
Perhaps the most incredibly detailed and oddly believable fictional landscape I’ve ever encountered.      fuente

If you haven't read it, just go read it. It is amazing!      fuente
Nonfiction narrative, let’s see. Hmm. I’m a big science-fiction fan. I love Dune. That’s not a nonfiction narrative, of course, but it would be cool if it was!      fuente
If you read Dune, and you don’t read it for the plot but you read it for understanding geopolitics, suddenly something clicks in your head.      fuente

DUNE by Frank Herbert is highly rated and still underrated. Masterpiece doesn’t even cut it. Read the book a long time ago, listening to the audiobook right now. Can highly recommend it.      fuente

@MikeMerchant2 I'm a huge fan of Dune, since I read the books when I was a 11. I'm going to need to organize a whole panel to discuss Dune 2020.      fuente
