If you haven’t read Dune by Frank Herbert, you are missing an epic story–epic as in brilliant, well-told, and ageless.  Dune is not only a story.  It is the opening to an unforgettable universe.  You may be thinking, “I wonder if the bookstore or local library has that book.”  If you like adventure and intrigue mixed with sci-fi, Dune is the book for you.

And, why is this book on my mind?  A two-part remake of the movie is in the works with part 1 scheduled for release October 1, 2021.  (The release was originally scheduled for December 18, 2020, but the studio changed the date due to low theater attendance during the COVID pandemic.)

  • Frigate like a Book

    There is no frigate like a book

    by Emily Dickinson

    There is no Frigate like a Book To take us Lands away, Nor any Coursers like a Page Of prancing Poetry - This Traverse may the poorest take Without oppress of Toll - How frugal is the Chariot That bears a Human soul.
