The Battle of Corrin (Legends of Dune, Book 3)
The Battle of Corrin (Legends of Dune, Book 3)
"Begins 56 years after the events of The Machine Crusade. The conclusion of the Legends of Dune trilogy and sets the stage for the next trilogy..."
Sisterhood of Dune
Sisterhood of Dune
"Picking up where the Legends of Dune trilogy left off, Sisterhood of Dune is the opening chapter of a new trilogy exploring the formation of the Bene Gesserit, the Mentats, the Suk Doctors, the Spacing Guild and the Navigators, as well as the solidifying of the Corrino imperium."
House Atreides (Dune: House Trilogy, Book 1)
House Atreides (Dune: House Trilogy, Book 1)
"The beginning of the Prelude to Dune or "House" trilogy. Begins approximately 20-30 years before the events of Dune. Follows Leto Atreides, Vladimir Harkonnen, Shaddam Corrino, and Dr. Pardot Kynes."
House Harkonnen (Dune: House Trilogy, Book 2)

Dune, 40th Anniversary Edition (Dune Chronicles, Book 1)
Dune, 40th Anniversary Edition (Dune Chronicles, Book 1)
"The original and also best of the Dune saga in my opinion. Beginning of the Dune Chronicles."
Paul of Dune
Paul of Dune
"The first in a new "Heroes of Dune" tetralogy (4 books). This new series jumps around a bit in the timeline. "Paul of Dune" focuses mostly on the 12 year Fremen Jihad between "Dune" and "Dune Messiah.""
Dune Messiah (Dune Chronicles)
Dune Messiah (Dune Chronicles)
"Set approx. 12 years after the conclusion of Dune. Follows Paul Muad'Dib ad his struggle to control his post-war empire."
The Winds of Dune (Heroes of Dune #2)
The Winds of Dune (Heroes of Dune #2)
"The Winds of Dune occurs immediately after the events of Dune Messiah and is part two of four in the "Heroes of Dune" series."
Children of Dune
Children of Dune
"Set approx. 9 years after "Messiah", the focus shifts from Paul to his twin children Leto and Ghanima."
God Emperor of Dune (Dune Chronicles, Book 4)
God Emperor of Dune (Dune Chronicles, Book 4)
"Set approx. 3500 years after "Children." This book serves as a bridge between trilogies. This chapter of the series focuses more on the religion of Muad'Dib than the characters and plot lines that made it's predecessors and successors great. It sets the stage for the next great trilogy but impatient readers could jump from "Children" to "Heretics" without missing much."
Heretics of Dune
Heretics of Dune
"Set 1500 years after the end of "God Emperor." This book begins the second trilogy of the "classic" Dune novels and shifts the focus to the Bene Gesserit Sisterhood, their newest Duncan Idaho ghola, and their military genius Miles Teg."
Chapterhouse: Dune (Dune Chronicles, Book 6)
Chapterhouse: Dune (Dune Chronicles, Book 6)
"The final Dune novel written by Frank Herbert. This book is part two if the "second trilogy" of classic Dune books and finished with a cliffhanger that lasted 20 years until..."

Sandworms of Dune
Sandworms of Dune
"The second of the 2-part "Book 7" concluding the grand Dune saga. Where "Hunters" began tying up loose ends and story lines that Frank Herbert began 50 years ago, "Sandworms" finishes the job."
The Road to Dune
The Road to Dune
"An inside look at the creation of Frank Herbert's masterpiece, Dune. Features unpublished chapters, correspondence with publishers and editors, and an early "alternate" version of the novel Dune."
Dreamer of Dune: The Biography of Frank Herbert
Dreamer of Dune: The Biography of Frank Herbert
"Included because it offers an insight into Frank's relationship with his son Brian, who took up the burden of finishing (and expanding) his father's work on the Dune series."
