3 for Fans of Dune

Love the epic world and drama of the classic sci-fi Dune? Try these!

Hyperion by Dan Simmons
Set in the future, pilgrims make their way to a new planet and each tells a tale of how they were chosen.  Like Dune, a portrait of the universe is filled with new religions, wars, family strife, and much political unrest. 


Leviathan Wakes by James S.A. Corey
Humans have colonized a solar system, but warring countries become warring planets.  Like Dune, it just takes one young person and many mysteries to put everything on a collision course to a better world.


Dawn by Octavia Butler
In Dawn, Lilith wakes up 250 years after the earth is destroyed and sees how ruinous and ridiculous humans are as a species.  Like Dune, Dawn is a world-building epic with strange aliens and home truths that make one see our planet in a whole new way.
