I remember really enjoying Dune - are the sequels worth delving into?
I read the sequels that Frank Herbert wrote years ago when they were published and enjoyed them all, but the history of the various factions, and references to events in the past were not well explained and left a void in the saga.
The new sequels fill in many of the blanks. The Butlerian Jihad, laws against "thinking machines," the histories of all the great families and the various organizations are all filled in with compelling stories. Great villains and heroes have epic conflicts and civilizations rise and fall.
Great stories, in my opinion.
