Here are some pictures of my costume from this year's Halloween.

Most people incorrectly guessed that I was a sand-person (aka Tuscan Raider) from Star Wars. They were close in that I was dressed as a dessert dweller, but they were in the wrong fictional series.

The costume was of a Fremen, which is an entire culture of people found in the DUNE books by Frank Herbert.

Here are links to the works chronological order:

The original "trilogy" by Frank Herbert:

The expanded DUNE universe books by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson:

Starting approximately 10,000 years before the events in DUNE.

Leading up to the events in DUNE:

Interspersed within the original DUNE "trilogy"

Between DUNE and DUNE Messiah:

Between DUNE Messiah and Children of DUNE:

Brian and Kevin's work to finish the original "trilogy" based on notes and passages left by Frank.

A book on the process of creating DUNE

Frank Herbert's biography

An unauthorized look into the science of DUNE:

The DUNE Movies

The 1984 version directed by David Lynch:

The SciFi Channel's miniseries:

Note: I have read all of the original "trilogy" by Frank Herbert. God Emperor of Dune is bad and it gets much worse. But the middle of that book is the worst part of the entire series. Heretics of Dune and Chapterhouse: Dune both get MUCH better.

I have also read the Butlerian Jihad books and the three "House" books.

I have not yet read Paul of Dune, Winds of Dune, Hunters of Dune or Sandworms of Dune.

There is also an Encyclopedia of Dune that was published in the 1980s, but it is currently out of print.

I was not provided any copies of anything listed here for review purposes.
