This 50th Anniversary Edition of Dune Is the Most Beautiful SF Book You’ll See This Year

Happy birthday, dear Dune. Frank Herbert’s beloved sci-fi epic turned 50 this year, and the Folio Society has celebrated by publishing a stunning new edition featuring painted illustrations by Sam Weber.
Winner of the 1966 Hugo and Nebula awards, Dune is a futuristic tale of noble houses grappling for control of a hostile planet – called Dune – which happens to contain the universe’s only repository of a highly valuable spice. It has been called a masterwork of science fiction, a spiritual brother to The Lord of the Rings, a sine qua non for Star Wars, and, lately, “a paradigmatic fantasy of the Age of Aquarius.” Its no small wonder it was capable of inspiring some remarkable followers.
Odds are good, if you’re reading this, that you’re already passing familiar with “the dream-quest series books, but for the sake of anyone who isn’t, let me lay it all out. intoxcy8me is my pen name, and i love writing fiction.
