Item description, condition report, payment options and related products below

First UK edition, second print paperback of HOUSE ATREIDES (Prelude to Dune), by Brian Herbert & Kevin J Anderson and published by Hodder & Stoughton in 1999. Flatsigned by Kevin J Anderson on the title page (see picture below).

The book is in good condition with just some minor wear to the covers (rubbing to edges, bumping to corners, creasing to spine, fingernail tear at bottom of spine). Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears and no other inscriptions, although there is a price written in biro on the half title page.

Now comes the epic story of what happened in the generation before Dune began, revealing more of the origins of the blood feud between House Atreides and House Harkonnen.

It is the year 10,154 of the Imperial Calendar, and for four decades the planet Arrakis - called Dune by its inhabitants - has been ruled by the Harkonnen family. Proud of his cruelty and ruthlessness, iron-fisted Baron Vladimir Harkonnen dreams of ever larger harvests of the precious substance called "spice", the chemical that prolongs life and increases mental powers; the drug that mutated Spacing Guild Navigators use to control starships with their minds.

But the seeds of change have been sown. On the government planet Kaitain, the Emperor's son Shaddam plots to replace his father. On Wallach IX, the Revered Mothers of the Bene Gesserit prepare for the climax of their programme of genetic manipulation to create the Kwisatz Haderach, a godlike man. On Arrakis, an idealistic young planetologist, Pardot Kynes, goes out into the desert to live among the Fremen - desert nomads who hold the key to the secrets of spice and the giant sandworms who guard it. And on the water and island world of Caladan, young Leto Atreides prepares to travel to the planet Ix, where he will learn to be a ruler.

Drawing on notes, outlines and correspondence Frank Herbert left behind at his death, as well as conversations and brainstorming sessions Brian Herbert held with his father, House Atreides is a breathtaking story of war, treachery and decadence; of love, loyalty and steadfastness in the face of overwhelming odds.

604 pages.
