Dune is a landmark novel published in 1965 and the first in a 6-book saga penned by author Frank Herbert. The Dune series is the subject of several adaptations into film, TV, boardgames and video games - including an upcoming major motion picture slated for release in 2020.

Set in the distant future amidst a feudal interstellar society in which various noble houses control planetary fiefs, Dune tells the story of young Paul Atreides, whose family accepts the stewardship of the planet Arrakis. While the planet is an inhospitable and sparsely populated desert wasteland, it is the only source of melange, or "the spice," a drug that extends life and enhances mental abilities. Melange is also necessary for space navigation, which requires a kind of multidimensional awareness and foresight that only the drug provides. As melange can only be produced on Arrakis, control of the planet is thus a coveted and dangerous undertaking. The story explores the multi-layered interactions of politics, religion, ecology, technology, and human emotion, as the factions of the empire confront each other in a struggle for the control of Arrakis and its spice.

Together, we can inspire a new generation to unleash its creative power, as Dune's message is more important now than ever:

—Fear is the mind-killer!
