DELUXE TRADE PAPERBACK  ACE BOOKS
Beautiful edition with frosted matte cover and some very cool art design.
Movie tie-in blurb on cover would indicate a more recent printing.
Book is in very good condition. Light wear. Reads perfectly.
Set in the far future amidst a sprawling feudal interstellar empire where planetary dynasties are controlled by noble houses that owe an allegiance to the imperial House Corrino, Dune tells the story of young Paul Atreides (the heir apparent to Duke Leto Atreides and heir of House Atreides) as he and his family accept control of the desert planet Arrakis, the only source of the 'spice' melange, the most important and valuable substance in the cosmos. The story explores the complex, multi-layered interactions of politics, religion, ecology, technology, and human emotion as the forces of the empire confront each other for control of Arrakis.
