For the similarities between some of Herbert's terms and ideas and actual words and concepts in the Arabic language, as well as the series' " Islamic undertones" and themes, a Middle Eastern influence in Herbert's works has been widely noted.

A lot of people refer to Dune as science fiction. I never do. I consider it an epic adventure in the classic storytelling tradition, a story of myth and legend not unlike the Morte d'Arthur or any messiah story. It just happens to be set in the future...The story is actually more relevant today than when Herbert wrote it. In the 1960s, there were just these two colossal superpowers duking it out. Today we're living in a more feudal, corporatized world more akin to Herbert's universe of separate families, power centers and business interests, all interrelated and kept together by the one commodity necessary to all.

We had already started work on House Atreides ... After we already had our general outline written and the proposal sent to publishers, then we found the outlines and notes. (This necessitated some changes, of course.)In 1985, Frank Herbert wrote an illustrated short work called " The Road to Dune", set sometime between the events of Dune and Dune Messiah. Published in Herbert's short story collection Eye, it takes the form of a guidebook for pilgrims to Arrakis and features images (with descriptions) of some of the devices and characters presented in the novels. [65] The core of Dune remains the original series started by Frank Herbert in 1965. Herbert wrote six novels before his death in 1986: Dune, Dune Messiah, Children of Dune, God Emperor of Dune, Heretics of Dune, and Chapterhouse: Dune. The first book establishes the competing factions of the intergalactic conflict, set thousands of years in the future, over the priceless spice melange on the planet Arrakis. It is also the story of the rise of Paul Atreides to the imperial throne. Paul struggles with his power in Dune Messiah, ultimately bequeathing it to his twin heirs. The pair of them, particularly Leto II Atreides, come into their own in Children of Dune. Before fan pressure convinced Herbert otherwise, this was the intended end of the series. Read the series which inspired the 2021 Denis Villeneuve epic Oscar nominated film, Dune, starring Oscar Isaac, Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya and Josh Brolin. Dune perhaps epitomises science-fiction.

The blend of science-aversion, exploitation of the naive by systematic manipulation of religion and witchcraft, and the harsh realities of life in a barren and mineral depleted desert is astounding.
