	5.2.2 Prequels by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson

Brian Herbert, Frank's son, has agreed to write three prequels to
_Dune_, called _Prelude to Dune_. He will be co-writing them with Kevin
J. Anderson. The first two books, _House Atreides_ and _House Harkonnen_
are already out. The third book in the series goes by the working title
_House Corrino_ (formerly _The Spice War_). If these prequels are
commercially successful, the two plan to pen a seventh book, based on
Frank Herbert's notes. They also have ideas for many more books in the
Dune setting.

5.7 Are there any differences between _Dune_ series editions?

Apart from cover art, typos and layout difference, these are the only
known differences between different editions of the _Dune_ series.
Additional and more specific information is always appreciated.

		---------------
	5.7.1 _Dune_ first edition

Apparently, the first edition of _Dune_ lacked the appendices found in
all later editions of that book, with the exception of the Terminology
of the Imperium glossary (which is located at the beginning of the
book). Final confirmation on this point is still requested.

		---------------
	5.7.2 _The Illustrated Dune_

	_The Illustrated Dune_, Frank Herbert (ill. John Schoenherr), New
		York : Berkley Pub. (1978, c1965).

_The Illustrated Dune_ was the first and is still the most fully
illustrated bound edition of _Dune_. It contains eight full-colour
paintings and 33 ink drawings, in addition to the cover and the standard
map.

The following is a list of all the paintings:
-Dawn at the Palace of Arrakeen
-Baron Vladimir Harkonnen
-The Sardaukar warriors
-The flight through the Shield Wall
-Paul Muad'Dib calling his first sandworm
-Stilgar and his men
-Paul administers the oath of the Fedaykin
-The defeat of the Sardaukar

		---------------
	5.7.3 _Dune_ Easton Memorial Edition

	_Dune_, Frank Herbert (ill. John Schoenherr), Norwalk, Conn. :
		Easton Press Pub. (1987).

Memorial collector's edition that contains illustrations, collector's
notes and "Remembrances" by a number of science fiction writers. The
book reproduces the paintings and some (6) of the drawings from _The
Illustrated Dune_. The printing quality on the drawings is lower than in
_The Illustrated Dune_, but all things considered - leather binding,
gilt edges, paper quality, satin bookmark, silk lining and extra
material - this is definitely the deluxe Dune edition. (Be warned that
recent reprints of this edition have lacked the silk lining, and have
slight differences in binding and embossing font. They are otherwise
similar to the description above.)

The Memorial Edition is given as a bonus for those subscribing to the
"Masterpieces of Science Fiction" series. You can cancel at any time.

Easton Press
47 Richards Avenue
Norwalk, CT 06857

(For paintings, see the list for _The Illustrated Dune_.)

		Victor Gollancz (New Illustrated Edition 1999).
		ISBN: 0-575-068566

		---------------
	5.7.5 _Dune Messiah_

Early editions of _Dune Messiah_, as well as all New English Library
editions of that book, do not contain the first chapter "Excerpt from
the Death Cell interview with Bronso of IX," but rather a prologue
titled "The Weird of Dune."

		---------------
	5.7.6 _Heretics of Dune_

Many editions of _Heretics of Dune_, including New English Library
editions and at least one G. Putnam's sons edition, lack the "When I was
writing Dune..." introduction.

------------------------------

5.8 Are there any comics and illustrated books about Dune?

		---------------
	5.8.1 Illustrated books

See subjects 5.3.4, 5.7.2, 5.7.3 and 5.7.4.

		---------------
	5.8.2 Comic books

	_Dune: The official Marvel Comics adaptation_, Ralph Macchio (after
		the film by David Lynch, based on the novel by Frank Herbert,
		art by Bill Sienkiewicz), New York : Marvel Comics
		Group, distributed by Berkley (1984).
		ISBN: 0-425-07623-7

Three versions of this comic exist. Marvel Super Special #36, one serial
published in three volumes, and the "book" above. The two albums have
different covers. Apart from cover art and printing quality, no
difference between these three publications is known.

		---------------
	5.8.3 Foreign editions

Several foreign editions of the Dune Chronicles have been illustrated.
See subject 5.6.

------------------------------

5.9 Can I get a signed copy of _The Dune Encyclopedia_?

Rumours of signed hardcover copies of the Dune Encyclopedia (DE) have
lately (98/12/19) been circulating on alt.fan.dune. Dr. Willis E.
McNelly, who compiled and edited the DE, denies ever having signed
anything but paperback copies.

ANY SIGNED HARDCOVER COPIES OF THE DUNE ENCYCLOPEDIA ARE FAKE!

However, Dr. McNelly has offered to provide Dune fans with an
opportunity to have their copies of the DE inscribed with a personalized
note (meaning that signed copies WITH a personalized note from now on
need not be fake). This is the information straight from Dr. McNelly:

"A local used book store manager (big SF fan) about half a mile way has
made the following suggestion based on what I did for him a few weeks
ago when he got a copy of the DE in and I signed it for him as his
personal copy.

If DE owners anywhere in the country want their copies signed by me,
they can be mailed to his bookstore:

	The Book Baron,
	1310 E. Chapman,
	Fullerton, CA 92831.
	Attention: Dr. Willis McNelly

The cost will be
	1) $3.20 for the priority mail return postage, and
	2) $7.00 for handling which includes the return envelope,
	for a total of $10.20 US.

(Please note: ALL copies MUST be mailed registered, or via UPS, or some
other mail mechanism which can be tracked, or at least prove that a copy
*was* mailed to the bookstore.  This is at Hitch's insistence; he is
concerned that some of the trolls that have dropped in from time to time
might claim that they mailed one, via regular mail, and try to get
"compensation" from me or the bookstore owner).

A return paste-on or stick-on address label MUST be included. He will
call me as they arrive and I will sign the books, with a personal
inscription, NOT a mere signature, and take them to the PO (100 yards
away) for mailing.  I will use the free Priority Mail envelopes from the
PO, but the address label is a MUST."

Any further questions should be addressed to John Kenny
<jkenny5@bellsouth.net>, NOT to Dr. McNelly or the FAQ maintainer.
