I say that I played a doorstop in Dune because I remember standing around a lot.
I was down there for months.
If I could go back in time and tell my younger self that eventually that I'd become very successful writing Dune books after Frank Herbert's death, I would have laughed myself silly, I think, at how strange that prospect would be.
I mean, I wasn't stupid. I knew we'd make money and sell a lot of Dune books.
Dune is the bestselling science fiction book of all time.
It's something you really need to read in your lifetime. If you're going to read The Lord of the Rings, which everyone should, then you have to read Dune, too.
