Yeah, I finally re-read the Dune series last summer. I wouldnt say that they are my favorite books but he has created an interesting universe, and his son and Kevin J. Anderson have really managed to continue the development of that universe.
Otherwise I'm really into writers that create big and exciting universes, like Asimov (Foundation and eventually the Robot books too) or David Brin (Uplift novels, which I think he should explore more). The more books, the better, I say.

yes. Asimov is categorized along with Herbert in my bookshelf in the God section. I absolutely adored the Dune series of books.So in Battle of Corrin, they finally get Omnius and Erasmus for good? ( haven't read this Brin guy though,tell me more.... you only get classic scifi here in Bangalore)!
