Dune: In what order to read all the books in the series?

We are about to happen one of the most anticipated cinematic moments of 2021. Dune, Denis Villeneuve’s new film (Blade Runner 2042, The Arrival) has been one of the most repeated names of the last year for three reasons. The first, its high expectation since it was announced with a luxury cast; the second, a delay of a whole year as a result of COVID-19; the third, that at film festivals it is classified as an essential event for science fiction lovers. Before its premiere in Spain on September 17 in Spain (October 22 in the United States), we tell you in what order to read all the books in the series.

Dune: order to read all Frank Herbert and Brian Herbert books

Everything has an origin and a reason. In this case, we are talking about the figure of Frank Herbert, an American author who in 1965 would publish the first novel by Dune with enormous success immediately; with more than 12 million copies sold just for this first book, from which the film is based. Then they would come Messiah of Dune (1969) e Sons of Dune (1976), thus ending the first trilogy … but it would not be the only one. Then they would come God Emperor of Dune (1981), Heretics of Dune (1984) and Dune Chapter House (1985), his last three novels.

After his passing in 1986, Herbert’s son, Brian Herbert, was in charge of writing and counting with Kevin J. Anderson the background of the main saga in two more trilogies: Prelude to Dune(1999-2001) and Legends of Dune (2002-2004). On the other hand, we find two more novels: Dune hunters(2006) and Dune Sandworms (2007) and a trilogy called Great Schools of Dune, also by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson. The latest book, published in 2020 as part of a possible new thyrlogy, is Dune: The Duke of Caladan (2020).

We leave you below the order to read all the novels of this successful literary saga, whose new cinematographic recreation (it is not the only one) is about to reach the cinemas sheltered by critics.
