From the Publisher:

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Pages: 432. Chapters: Arrakis, List of Dune planets, Kaitain, Ix, Salusa Secundus, Caladan, Giedi Prime. Excerpt: Below is a list of fictional planets named in the novels of the Dune universe created by Frank Herbert. In the Appendix of Dune (1965), Herbert notes that there are over 13,300 worlds under Landsraad influence immediately after the Butlerian Jihad. The desert planet Arrakis is the primary planet featured in the Dune series of novels; it is the only known source of the all-important spice melange in the universe. Other notable planets introduced in the originating novel Dune are Caladan (ancestral home of House Atreides) and Giedi Prime (homeworld of House Harkonnen). III Delta Kaising is one of two planets on which shigawire is grown (the other being Salusa Secundus). Al Dhanab is an "artificial world," location of a Bene Gesserit creche and "one of the original Sisterhood safe planets." A "planet of constant testing," it is considered "an equivalent of Salusa Secundus" and in some ways "worse than Dune." The environment is characterized by "high cliffs and dry gorges, hot winds and frigid winds, little moisture and too much." At some point the Sisterhood considers converting the whole planet into a no-chamber, but abandons the plan due to the prohibitive energy requirements. Arrakis, (derived from the Arabic name ar-rqi, "the dancer", originally a star-name for Mu Draconis) later Rakis (known colloquially throughout as Dune), is a desert planet home to the Fremen (Zensunni wanderers) and later, the Imperial Capital under Paul "Muad'Dib" Atreides. Arrakis is the third planet orbiting the star Canopus, and it in turn is orbited by two moons, one of which has the image of the desert kangaroo-rat, Muad'Dib, on it; the other possesses the image of a human fist. The planet is the only known source of the all-important spice...
