"One of the monuments of modern science fiction." --Chicago Tribune on Dune"I know nothing comparable to it except The Lord of the Rings." --Sir Arthur C. Clarke on Dune"A portrayal of an alien society more complete and deeply detailed than any other author in the field has managed . . . a story absorbing equally for its action and philosophical vistas. . . . An astonishing science fiction phenomenon." --The Washington Post on Dune"Powerful, convincing, and most ingenious." --Robert A. Heinlein on Dune"Herbert's creation of this universe, with its intricate development and analysis of ecology, religion, politics, and philosophy, remains one of the supreme and seminal achievements in science fiction." --Louisville Times on Dune"The kind of intricate plotting and philosophical musings that would make the elder Herbert proud." --Publishers Weekly (starred review) on Dune: The Butlerian Jihad"Sit back and enjoy." --Booklist on Dune: The Machine Crusade"Dune addicts will happily devour Herbert and Anderson's spicy conclusion to their second prequel trilogy." --Publishers Weekly on Dune: The Battle of Corrin
