And the prequels. Actually, everything Anderson and Herbert jr. wrote never existed!
Dune Messiah, Children, God Emperor, Heretics and Chapterhouse are just as awesome as the first book.

Nah, I thought each book cheapened the universe a little bit more.  By the sixth one I didn't even like Dune anymore.

Yeah, I agree.  It's a great story and well written.. no doubt.  However it just seemed like it was a documentary about Dune.  Even the exciting, action, parts read like a reported account... I didn't feel like I was there; immersed in it.

Idunno, I liked the DOS Dune games, although I played more Warcraft than Dune2.

Ha! I remember buying Dune 2 for a quid or something at the London Virgin Megastore when it was still fullprice over here. These were the days when CD-ROM drives were still new and i remember throngs of people gawking at a Rebel Assault demo in the same place.  Fond memories...
