Praise for Dune“I know nothing comparable to it except The Lord of the Rings.”—Arthur C. Clarke“It is possible that Dune is even more relevant now than when it was first published.”—The New Yorker  “An astonishing science fiction phenomenon.”—The Washington Post “One of the monuments of modern science fiction.”—Chicago Tribune“Powerful, convincing, and most ingenious.”—Robert A. Heinlein   “Herbert’s creation of this universe, with its intricate development and analysis of ecology, religion, politics and philosophy, remains one of the supreme and seminal achievements in science fiction.”—Louisville Times About the Author Frank Herbert is the bestselling author of the Dune saga. He was born in Tacoma, Washington, and educated at the University of Washington, Seattle. He worked a wide variety of jobs—including TV cameraman, radio commentator, oyster diver, jungle survival instructor, lay analyst, creative writing teacher, reporter and editor of several West Coast newspapers—before becoming a full-time writer.In 1952, Herbert began publishing science fiction with “Looking for Something?” in Startling Stories. But his emergence as a writer of major stature did not occur until 1965, with the publication of Dune. Dune Messiah, Children of Dune, God Emperor of Dune, Heretics of Dune, and Chapterhouse: Dune followed, completing the saga that the Chicago Tribune would call “one of the monuments of modern science fiction.” Herbert is also the author of some twenty other books, including The White Plague, The Dosadi Experiment, and Destination: Void. He died in 1986. <div id="

  • If you’re confused by the reviews and are concerned about getting a matching set, this review is for you. I’ll start by specifying that my review is for the regular set of unboxed books, NOT the boxed set, of the NEWEST edition of these books by Ace publishing (with the covers as seen in the image gallery).Despite having separate product listings, both the unboxed AND boxed set have the exact same reviews. This is why some reviews say they got a mismatched set, while newer reviews say they got a matching set. That, coupled with the fact that people may have ordered from different sellers, leads to some chaos in the review pool and uncertainty on the part of prospective buyers.I purchased the unboxed set twice, one from Prime ($62) and one from an independent seller ($52 including S/H). Before that I purchased the first three books separately, and received the first Dune book in a larger size and the others in a narrower size. After that first purchase, I went looking for a matching set of the LARGER size books, since I prefered the feel of it. I learned that apparently the larger size first book is what a lot of people had when they tried to purchase the sequels, which then often came in the narrow size. Here’s what’s going on with that:If you have the larger-size Dune book(s) you have the TRADE PAPERBACK version. If you have the smaller size Dune book(s), you actually have the *NEW* MASS MARKET PAPERBACK edition. For convenience, I will use NMM = New Mass Market and OMM = Old Mass Market for the rest of the review.It seems for the unboxed set, when you select “Paperback” you tend to receive the NMM set despite there being a separate “Mass Market” option. This was my experience—I did indeed receive matching sets both times but they were not the Trade Paperbacks I was seeking.To add to this confusion, even individual listings of the NMM books also pitch the NMM as “Paperback” while the “Mass Market” option seems to mean OMM editions.IF YOU WANT A SET OF THE LARGE TRADE PAPERBACK SIZE… The boxed set on Amazon states it is in the Trade Paperback format, hence its higher price point. At $86 as of writing this, it’s still a steal compared to its normal price of $108 (each individual Trade Paperback book is, at full price, $18 each). Skip a few paragraphs down, though, if you want to save even more money on a complete Trade Paperback set.IF YOU WANT A SET OF THE NEW MASS MARKET SIZE… The unboxed set seems to be just that. My two purchases of this product both were the matching NMM size; as for the negative reviews from people that received entirely mismatching sets, I can’t explain that except that I believe they may have purchased from different sellers and probably before a certain date when the complete NMM set became available (?). If you want to be sure what you’re getting, contact independent sellers beforehand or order it via Prime so you can receive and return it quickly if it turns out to be mismatched.IF YOU ONLY WANT SOME OF THE BOOKS IN THE LARGE TRADE PAPERBACK SIZE… I ended up only wanting the first four books after my two failed purchases of the complete set. I didn’t really want to pay for the boxed set, even though it was in the Trade Paperback size I wanted. You would think so, but it is NOT EASY to find the individual Trade Paperback version of each book on Amazon. Even if you specify “Trade Paperback” in searches, it still tries to give you the NMM edition (the one technically mislabeled as “Paperback”), at least in my experience.I ended up on the Penguin Random House website, found the individual Dune books there, chose “Paperback” on their site, then hit their Amazon button to find it here. This is how I found the first four books in Trade Paperback size, in the end (and you can find the rest of the books this way). Penguin House does correctly differentiate between true “Paperback” and “Mass Market”, unlike Amazon. You will know you have the right product if it says: “Paperback – July 7, 2020” in the title, with the key being the publishing date. The product image looks wider, unlike other listings which sell the narrower new Mass Market edition, and the dimensions are also listed in the product details.IF YOU WANT THE TRADE PAPERBACK COMPLETE 6-BOOK SET BUT WANT TO SAVE SOME MONEY… First, read the paragraph directly above this one. As of writing this, the first three books are the SAME price as the NMM books @ about $10 each; the fourth book fluctuates between $12-$17 (almost full price). I got the fourth book at $12.59 when the price dropped a little bit. Heretics is also @ $10 and Chapterhouse is still @ $17—but I bet, like God Emperor, its price fluctuates. At those prices you could save $16-20 buying them individually versus the boxed set. I didn’t want the full set, but if I change my mind then I’d still be saving a good chunk of money. Note that you could also buy some of these books USED and save a little more, but I would contact the seller beforehand to make sure they’re definitely selling the Trade Paperback size as my gut tells me some of them might incorrectly give you the NMM size.Sorry that this review is so long. Figuring all this out was messy and became a little stressful; I wish I had known all this before all of my failed buying attempts, so I’ve left this review in hopes it helps clarify what’s going on. Four stars because I did get a matching set both times, but overall such an unusually confusing experience with the incorrect delineations of “Paperback” and “Mass Market Paperback” explained above.EPILOGUE: WHY WOULD YOU WANT THE LARGER TRADE PAPERBACK SIZE? It stays open on a flat surface, uses a nicer font that’s slightly heavier weight than the mass market version, offers a nicer leading size with the text (that is, the space between lines looks a little better) and uses less-smushed-together italics—this is all just preference, obviously, but for me it added up to greater readability and a more satisfying experience. Before I got the first book in Trade and the other two in MM, I didn’t care about all that. But after I saw and felt the difference in quality, it was hard to want the MM versions after that. Obviously if you want portability over everything else, then the MM size is better for you.
  • It appears that previous entries of this set were a mix and match of previous releases. This new listing (Ace Publishing August,2020) is a new Boxset of the series. The set measures ~8.5” Height by 5.5” depth (spine to front). As you can see I’m pictures all of the spines match now. If you can get this on sale it would be worth the addition to you collection.
  • This is not what I received. I got all six books but they were not only not in a boxed set, but they were from different editions and they’re not even all the same size. Very disappointed.
  • The Dune Boxed Set should have been the six books in Dune series, same size, same edition and inside a box. Well, the leading name, Dune, was a different edition, different size and the books were not in a box. Apart of this detail, I am happy with my purchase.
  • I got a copy of Dune a while back in the new style (currently listed as the Paperback set, which may change – I’ll get to that in a minute), but could not find the rest of the series in the same style AND size. For some reason all of the other books in that style were about an inch shorter, and honestly I just wanted a matching set. I had previously viewed this item, and as some of the reviews note, the books were not really a “boxed set” by any means. I want to be clear, the current Paperback selection is a genuine boxed set. I don’t understand why Amazon sets this up in a way where a new product just replaces the old one, or why all of the various “sets” of Dune are all listed together. Why would a review for the Hardcover set be exactly the same as the Paperback? People want to know about quality of the material, not just whether the book is good!Anyway, the new boxed set was just released a couple days ago. I bought I liked the art style, along with the size and feel of the copy I had, and I am overall very pleased (though now I have two copies of Dune, so I will be gifting one to a friend). I have two VERY minor qualms with the set. One is it is not exactly the same as the previous copy of Dune, which is disappointing as that is what I have been looking for. It’s hard to describe, but the copy of Dune I had has an almost velvety smooth cover, and while the size and art style are the same, the new books have a rougher texture. Again, it’s totally minor, but something about that tactile feel when holding it was really great. The second minor qualm is the new copy of Dune has the “soon to be a major motion picture” as part of the cover in a black circle. Not a huge deal. Frankly, I’ll probably just put my old copy in the box and gift the new one, but it bugs me when there are permanent additions like that made on a really cool cover (at least the cover isn’t a photo of Timothee Chalamet!).Anyway, overall – totally worth the cost for me. Really good set. Love the style. Love the feel of the books in my hand. I’m very excited to read the rest of the series!
  • This was not a boxed set loose books so disapointed
  • When my granddaughter wanted to read the whole series, we searched long and wide on the internet. Since she just wanted to read all of the books, I made sure that the printing was easy to read and easy to carry. There are many prints of these books. If you want to read the books, this is the best format.
  • These are smaller but thicker versions, all the same size, of the books. They are 7 1/2” x 4” compared to the 2007 version of the first book (same cover and printer), which is 8 1/4” x 5 1/2”. The size of these books are almost laughable in comparison. They’re not abridged versions and print size is the same, so it won’t be hard on your eyes. But the books are awkward because the text is only 3 1/4” across. My 12-year-old says it would be cumbersome to read if your hands are bigger (like that of a 6’ tall person). Excellent price. If you want all your books the same size, this is it. I have not been able to find larger versions of books 2-6.
  • Being a huge lifetime fan of the Dune saga I am giving this box set published by Ace an imprint of PenguinRandomhouse a 1 star because of the really poor quality of the set it looks and feels like a self printed book that has been rushed . Poor quality paper and materials used and definitely not worth the money really shoddy workmanship from penguin who I always regarded highly as a publisher but definitely not this time.
  • Los libros todavía no los termino, pero por ahora puedo decir que físicamente las ediciones son muy hermosas y son de buena calidad. El unico problema es que el lomo de dos esta un poco dañado, nada horrible solo como un doblez leve, de ahi en fuera plenamente recomendado. Ya que los lea escribire sobre el contenido en si.EDIT:Al haber terminado los libros puedo decir que la saga Dune es definitivamente la mejor saga que he leido (de acuerdo a mis gustos y opiniones). el primer libro Dune, se volvio mi libro favorito, y saga completa es extraordinara. solo me gustaria agregar para los que lo van a comprar, que la saga queda inconclusa por la muerte de Frank Herbert, hay dos libros que no estan incluidos aqui escritos por Brian Herbert y Kevin J. Anderson que concluyen la saga.
  • This is a review of the product and not the Dune series.The Paperbacks are of good quality and are certainly better than the individual copies (which have the same cover design but are much smaller in size)However the box itself is not actual cardboard box but only a thick paper which easily wobbles at the touch. Was expecting something better like the boxed set for Mistborn
  • Quality is fine, not the regular size for standard print, these are more taller than wide, also my set didn’t come with the nice Bix some others have come in. . . Mine was just in a bag and then an amazon boxWoukd recommend for the price but a 8/10 quality wise
  • Ordered a boxed set and got books from three different print runs, nothing like what was advertised.Sure as heck won’t be buying this seller again.
