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 (God Emperor of Dune):
Do you know what guerrillas often say? They claim that their rebellions are invulnerable to economic warfare because they have no economy, that they are parasitic on those they would overthrow. The fools merely fail to assess the coin in which they must inevitably pay. The pattern is inexorable in its degenerative failures. You see it repeated in the systems of slavery, of welfare states, of caste-ridden religions, of socializing bureaucracies in any system which creates and maintains dependencies. Too long a parasite and you cannot exist without a host.
