Frank Herbert’s Dune

While researching a blog post I intend to write about Arab culture and language in Star Wars, I found this article http://baheyeldin.com/literature/arabic-and-islamic-themes-in-frank-herberts-dune.html about Arabic and Islamic Themes in Frank Herbert’s “Dune.”
I read Dune a long time ago and don’t remember much about it, but for those of you who are interested in Dune and in Arab culture, it ought to be a fascinating article. If you’re not a fan of Dune, you probably won’t find the article very interesting.
