Dick Entry for “Dune”
Rather good sci-fi novel by Frank Herbert that works like an onion, plans within plans, plots within plots...full of intrigue and scary stuff like that.
So far been made into two excellent movies, both different in style, both covering the book incompletely. The second version was then followed, this year, by “Children of Dune” which was amazingly good and gorgeously produced, even though it was only done by the Sci-Fi Channel

Anything with Alec Newman in a loincloth gets my vote for purely shallow reasons.
But the Sci-Fi Channel adaptations are extremely good even if you don’t consider that.

Usually found before the word Buggy.....apart from when in context of young mothers

A novel that would be on university reading lists if it wasn’t sci-fi and ergo sidelined by the Literature Police
