    Before The Matrix, before Star Wars, before Ender's Game and Neuromancer, there was Dune: winner of the prestigious Hugo and Nebula awards, and widely considered one of the greatest science fiction novels ever written. Melange, or 'spice', is the most valuable - and rarest - element in the universe; a drug that does everything from increasing a person's life-span to making intersteller travel possible. And it can only be found on a single planet: the inhospitable desert world Arrakis.Whoever controls Arrakis controls the spice. And whoever controls the spice controls the universe. When the Emperor transfers stewardship of Arrakis from the noble House Harkonnen to House Atreides, the Harkonnens fight back, murdering Duke Leto Atreides.Paul, his son, and Lady Jessica, his concubine, flee into the desert. On the point of death, they are rescued by a band for Fremen, the native people of Arrakis, who control Arrakis' second great resource: the giant worms that burrow beneath the burning desert sands. In order to avenge his father and retake Arrakis from the Harkonnens, Paul must earn the trust of the Fremen and lead a tiny army against the innumerable forces aligned against them.And his journey will change the universe.

Et stof, der blandt meget andet kan forlænge menneskets levetid og muliggøre interstellare rejser. Og det findes kun på en planet: den ugæstfri ørkenverden Arrakis – også kaldet Dune. Den, der kontrollerer krydderiet, kontrollerer universet.Da Kejseren overdrager forvaltningen af Arrakis fraHuset Harkonnen til Huset Atreides, udbryder et spil på liv og død om det galaktiske herredømme og universets fremtid. I midten af kampen står Paul Atreides, arving til Atreides-tronen, og hans familie, der skal navigere blandt venner og fjender for at overleve.

    Opfølgeren til Frank Herberts massive succesroman Dune. Profeten på Dune fortsætter historien om Paul Atreides, bedre kendt – og frygtet – som manden døbt Muad'Dib. Som kejser over universet besidder han mere magt, end en enkelt mand nogensinde var beregnet til at have. Tilbedt som et religiøst ikon står Paul over for truslen fra de fjender, han fordrev, da han overtog tronen – og en sammensværgelse, der blev til inden for hans egen indflydelsessfære. Og da Huset Atreides begynder at smuldre, trues hans elsker, Chani, og dermed den ufødte arving til hans families dynasti.Frank Herbert (1920-86) blev født i Tacoma, Washington, og arbejdede som journalist og senere som redaktør for en række aviser, inden han blev fuldtidsforfatter. Hans første science fiction-historie blev publiceret i 1952, og i de følgende år udgav han en lang række noveller og romaner. Dune udkom i 1965 og blev det første af seks værker i sagaen om ørkenplaneten Arrakis. Sagaens tematisering af ressourceknaphed, geopolitik og planetarisk økologi har gjort den til en forløber for nutidens cli-fi og det aktuelle fokus på klimaforandringer. Efter Herberts død har hans søn, Brian Herbert og forfatteren Kevin J. Anderson, skrevet en lang række romaner inden for Dune-universet. Herberts omfattende øvrige forfatterskab spænder bredt, men til de mest læseværdige værker hører blandt andre romanerne The Green Brain (1965) og specielt Hellstrom’s Hive (1973), der begge tematiserer menneskets prekære forhold til naturen og den aktuelle planetariske situation.

    Operation Haystack: A science fiction classic from Frank Herbert, author of DUNE! Operation Haystack is a short science fiction space opera first published in 1959, a few years before Dune. The story is classic Frank Herbert and exhibit many of the themes from Dune; matriarchal societies, clandestine overthrow plots, distaste for politics, human colonies expanding through the vastness of space, and genetic manipulation through breeding in humans. In the fictional setting, a galactic feminist conspiracy, weaved by a network of alpha women, threatens to take over the galactic government with the ultimate aim of establishing a cosmic matriarchy where females hold primary power, predominate in roles of political leadership, moral authority, social privilege and control of property. The story was published at the beginning of Second-wave feminism which first began in the early 1960s in the United States. Whereas first-wave feminism focused mainly on suffrage and overturning legal obstacles to gender equality (e.g., voting rights, property rights), second-wave feminism broadened the debate to a wide range of issues: sexuality, family, the workplace, reproductive rights, de facto inequalities, and official legal inequalities. Other Frank Herbert's short stories included in this print edition include Missing Link and Rambling House. Frank Herbert was an American science fiction writer best known for the novel Dune and its five sequels. Though he became famous for science fiction, he was also a newspaper journalist, photographer, short story writer, book reviewer, ecological consultant and lecturer. Frank Herbert used his science fiction novels to explore complex ideas involving philosophy, religion, psychology, politics and ecology. The underlying thrust of his work was a fascination with the question of human survival and evolution.
