Winds of Dune


Here is the novel that will forever be considered a triumph of the imagination. Set on the desert planet Arrakis, Dune is the story of the boy Paul Atreides, who would become the mysterious man known as Muad'Dib. He would avenge the traitorous plot against his noble family—and would bring to fruition hmankind's most ancient and unattainable dream.

A stunning blend of adventure and mysticism, environmentalism and politics, Dune won the first Nebula Award, shared the Hugo Award, and formed the basis of what is undoubtedly the grandest epic in science fiction.




God Emperor of Dune

The fourth book of the Dune series takes place 3500 years after the events of the original trilogy and tells the story of Leto, the son of Paul Atreides, savior of the planet Dune.  Leto still lives but is no longer human.  He has traded his humanity for virtual immortality by undergoing what will soon be a total transformation into the magnificent and enormous sandworm of Dune.  He must live, for without his guidance the human race will go horribly astray.

Will he succeed or will his awesome sacrifice have been in vain?
