Synopsis

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.

Huge in scope, towering in concept, it is a work that will live on in the reader's imagination.
