Frank Herbert's Dune was the first science fiction novel I read, and remains one of my favorite sci-fi books. I actually got through the first few books of the Dune series and ended at Children of Dune, which I think was after Dune Messiah.

Anyway, I particularly love this photo because the 1984 version of Dune (the movie) remains by far one of my favorite films. I know David Lynch had a problem directing this Dune movie, and Dino De Laurentiis said producing Dune forever impacted his future decisions as a producer, but I think the music + story = awesome.
