In 1957 Frank Herbert fell in love with the majesty of the Dunes in Florence, Oregon. He was mesmerized by the Coast that had developed these Dunes from years of wind and rain erosion. It was at that moment that Herbert’s love for ecology began along with the five-year phase of research and development the produced his widely acclaimed Dune series.

Herbert’s Dune developed in a multimedia franchise, including 5 sequel novels, television adaptations in both 2000 and 2003, a feature film in 1984, as well as several comics, traditional, role-playing, and video games. After his death, partially inspired by a series of Herbert’s notes found by his son, Brian Herbert and Kevin J Anderson published several prequel novels.
Dune won the Hugo Award in 1966 (tied with Roger Zelazny’s This Immortal) as well as being honored with the inaugural Nebula Award for Best Novel in the same year.
