Re: Dune newbie questions
You can read it in any order, just read the House trilogy before Paul, and the Legend trilogy before the sequals. And after you finished with the House trilogy, reread Dune. It makes it MORE AWESOME!
Yeah, based on what I've read on wikipedia and the Dune wikia this does sound like a good idea.
