FIRST APPEARANCE OF DUNE, preceding the first book edition. Much of Herberts opus originally appeared in Analog , edited by the legendary John W. Despite Campbells seal of approval, Dune longer and far more ambitious than most science fiction of the timewas turned down by some twenty publishers. It is just possible that we may be making the mistake of the decade in declining Dune by Frank Herbert,' wrote Julian P. Muller, of Harcourt, Brace & World, in a typical response.
In the end, an editor at Chilton, known for its line of car-repair manuals, offered to publish it after reading the serialized chapters (The New Yorker). Published to almost immediate critical acclaim, Dune won the two most prestigious science fiction awards, the Nebula Award from the Science Fiction Writers of America in 1965 and the Hugo Award from the World Science Fiction Convention in 1966 (American National Biography). "Dune World" and "The Prophet of Dune" were combined to form the first book edition, published in August of 1965.
