The following sets of pages are dedicated to a series of books written by Frank Herbert. These books are Dune, Dune Messiah, Children of Dune, God Emperor of Dune, Heretics of Dune, and Chapterhouse: Dune. In 1984, Director David Lynch directed a big budget film adaptation of these novels. Though that film was a box office bomb, it too has a wide cult following. The film information provided here also covers the span of several years spent trying to produce the film. This includes works of Alexandro Jodorowsky and H.R. Giger. Several games have been created in recognition of Dune's popularity, including the popular Dune II by Westwood (recently updated as Dune 2000).
Quote of the Day (Dune Messiah):
I've had a bellyful of the god and priest business! You think I don't see my own mythos? Consult your data once more, Hayt. I've insinuated my rites into the most elementary human acts. The people eat in the name of Muad'dib! They make love in my name, are born in my name--cross the street in my name. A roof beam cannot be raised in the lowliest hovel of far Gangishree without invoking the blessing of Muad'dib!
--Book of Diatribes from The Hayt Chronicle
