About this book


Dune is set far in humanity's future. Within those years, Earth has been destroyed, a Jihad has taken place to free humanity from the 'thinking machines' that threatened to overwhelm the human race, and mankind has scattered throughout space. This Universe is a feudal empire ruled by the Padishah Emperor Shaddam Corrino IV of House Corrino. The novel focuses on a rivalry between two feudal houses - House Atreides and House Harkonnen.

  • Dune (1965)
  • Dune Messiah (1969)
  • Children of Dune (1976)
  • God Emperor of Dune (1981)
  • Heretics of Dune (1984)
