and drawing ornithopters and sandworms…

dune’s been on my to read list for awhile now

i expected it to be a slog, but it’s not. it really moves

the first chapter throws a lot at you, but after that it goes non-stop

star wars owes so much to dune, but elements of the novel seem to pop up a lot in other, unexpected areas of pop culture as well

(i’m thinking of metal gear solid’s sneak suit and skull suit owe a lot to the stillsuit of dune)

but maybe even more interesting than the influence of dune, are the influences on dune

i can’t wait to dig in there

i know so little about frank herbert, but he must have been off – the – charts brilliant
