Swimming in Sand 1a: Dune appendix

Strictly speaking this post has no exobiology in it, so has no place here. But I could not resist digging up the only painting I ever did of an existing work of SF, and that was Dune, the subject of the previous post. So here it is. The painting is (shockingly) old, but the lettering is all new.

(Until now New Hades Publishers specialised in nature books -have a look at the Furaha site-, so this must be a new approach for them.)

Why no sandworms? As I said before, for me Dune was about people foremost, and sandworms second.
