nostromo-featured Space Music: Carpenter Brut, 67P & ‘Alien’ Ambient

visionsofdune-feature Space Music: Bernard Szajner’s ‘Visions of Dune’

I hold Frank Herbert’s “Dune” right up there as one of my favorite books of all time. It’s psychedelic, philosophical, ecological and succeeds in crafting a universe of intrigue unparalleled by almost any other single volume of science fiction. So
