Since these books are a Scifi classic, and there are threads for every other book, I feel the Dune Series deserves its own thread

The Original Dunes Series in Order, written by Frank Herbert:
Dune (1965)
Dune Messiah (1969)
Children of Dune (1976)
God Emperor of Dune (1981)
Heretics of Dune (1984)
Chapterhouse Dune (1985

Later some other authors (including his son) wrote other books that take place in the Dune Story.
Here is a list of them:

-Prelude to Dune
Written by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson

Dune: House Atreides (1999)
Dune: House Harkonnen (2000)
Dune: House Corrino (2001)

-Legends of Dune
Written by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson

Dune: The Butlerian Jihad (2002)
Dune: The Machine Crusade (2003)
Dune: The Battle of Corrin (2004)

-Completion of the original series (A.K.A. Dune 7)
The two novels are based on a 30-page outline written by Frank Herbert prior to his death, the working title of which was Dune 7.

Hunters of Dune (2006)
Sandworms of Dune (2007

Heroes of Dune
In the foreword to Hunters of Dune (2006), Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson wrote that they plan to continue writing Dune novels after completing Dune 7
Working titles for the novels are:

Paul of Dune (2008)
The Winds of Dune[40]
The Throne of Dune[40]
Leto of Dune-

There was also a movie made in the 1984 based upon book 1
And Dune remade by the Scifi channel in 2000 and Children of Dune in 2003.

There are also some games made based upon Dune.
1997 Dune
1979 Avalon Hill's Dune, Avalon Hill
1984 Parker Brothers' Dune, Parker Brothers
2000 Dune: Chronicles of the Imperium

Video Games
1992 Dune, Cryo Interactive (Mixture between adventure and strategy game)
1992 Dune 2, Westwood Studios (popularized the real-time strategy genre)
1998 Dune 2000, Westwood Studios (enhanced remake of Dune 2)
2001 Emperor: Battle for Dune, Westwood Studios
2001 Frank Herbert's Dune, Cryo Interactive

Haven't read them, but a friend of mine is REALLY into them.

There was this one time where we were getting lectured on writing essays and stuff and the teacher was telling us to use more spice words and this guy said, "In relation to spice words, would you say that he who controls the spice controls the universe?" Made me lol.

You could have put an abridged version of this in the literature thread.


But this series is too cool for the Literature thread.

just watched the scif remake a few days ago, and I thought it was pretty cool. I've never read the book though, so I wouldn't know.

I have the book (Dune) - bought it a few months ago. I'll read it after I finish The Darkness That Comes Before.

I've heard that the ones written by other people are crap. I'm not really surprised.

I've read part of the first one, up to the part in the desert with the worms IIRC.

What's wrong with that.
With that logic, everything can fit into a general topics thread, Instead of having a marshall thread and a peavey thread, just a general amplifiers thread. Not as good.

If you like Science Fiction, you will.

Not when you consider that this is a guitar based forum so naturally you need separate threads when you're talking about amps or guitars. Unlike literature where it makes sense to have a single thread. "Oh yeah I read this, it was good" do we really need that for every series?

The reason there is a general thread for literature is so that the forum does not become cluttered.

Good thread idea young Wali, Paul Atredies would be proud.

Well I've read the first three novels (Dune, Dune Messiah, Children of Dune) but plan to read the last three when I get the time. Amazing Sci Fi. The 1984 movie was exellent. I saw the remakes from Sci Fi channle but those sucked hard.

Also, have any of you guys played the RTS game that came out in the early 90s? Just thought I'd ask since it should be mentioned..

I guess my favorite character in the series (besides Paul) was probably Duncaan Idaho, he was just such a bad @ss. Apparenty he refuses to die because he lives long after Paul is gone as a Gohla corpse.

My favorite villian was Fayd. Nuff said.

Now, I must return to my stiech where I'll go look at my crys knife.
