I've been a fan of Frank Herbert since I was ten years old. I became addicted to Dune II: Battle for Arrakis and tortured my family members with the relentless drone of the soundtrack for many years. They have never gotten over the trauma.
My sister bought me a copy of Dune for my twelfth birthday. Years later, I still find myself re-reading the novels annually.
I look forward to interesting discussions about the novels with fans who also love and cherish the novels.
