Frank Herbert received the Nebula Award in 1965, and the Hugo Award in 1966, the latter, tied with , for his And Call me Conrad (see more on this page).
Frank Herbert's science fiction masterpiece tells the tale of
a desert planet called Arrakis, where an intricate power struggle unfolds in a feudal interstellar empire.
The planet Arrakis is unique in their known universe, as it is the sole source of Melange, the spice of spices, literally the spice of life: it is not only indispensable for interstellar travel, but it also grants psychic and political powers.
