I know what you mean; but once I finally got into it, only took me one week to read the whole series -- Mom already had all the copies!!!

You read them ALL???

The original seriesPrelude to Dune
The prequel trilogy Prelude to Dune by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson is set in the years leading up to the events in Dune.[edit] Legends of Dune

Brian Herbert and Anderson followed with a second prequel trilogy called the Legends of Dune. This series is set at an earlier time in the history of the Dune universe, when humans and sentient machines waged war with one another.[edit] Completion of the original series (A.K.A. Dune 7)

Hunters of Dune and Sandworms of Dune complete the chronological progression of the series and wrap up storylines that began with Frank Herbert's Chapterhouse: Dune. The two novels are based on a two-and-a-half page outline written by Frank Herbert[6] prior to his death, the working title of which was Dune 7.[edit] Short stories and other works

Frank Herbert wrote an illustrated short work set sometime between the events of Dune and Dune Messiah.Brian Herbert and Anderson have written several Dune short stories, most of them accompanying their Dune novels.

Favorites include: THE THING (original and Carpenter's remake, for different reasons), THEM!, THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL, INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS (original), IT! THE TERROR FROM BEYOND SPACE is a fun very-50s flick (the prototype for ALIEN).

For me, 2001 is the landmark separating 'old' sci-fi films and the new era... but then again I can't think of films from the '80s being "old sci-fi" either.
