Synopsis

Children of Dune is a science fiction novel by Frank Herbert, third in a series of six novels set in the Dune universe. The novel was nominated for the Hugo Award for Best Novel in 1977. It was originally serialized in Analog Science Fiction and Fact in 1976, and was the last Dune novel to be serialized before book publication. The novels Dune Messiah and Children of Dune were adapted into a well-received mini-series entitled Frank Herbert's Children of Dune by the Sci-Fi Channel in 2003.
