Going far beyond D&D, this heavily illustrated tome covers more than three hundred different RPGs that have been published in the last five decades.

A Masterpiece in Disarray: David Lynch’s Dune. An Oral History

A Masterpiece in Disarray: David Lynch’s Dune. An Oral History
On September 19, 2023, 1984 Publishing will release A Masterpiece In Disarray: David Lynch’s Dune – An Oral History, a defining 560-page hardcover book weaving together the behind-the-scenes events from all production phases of David Lynch’s Dune, including the film’s immediate aftermath and its controversial legacy almost 40 years later.

Following his underground hit Eraserhead and critically acclaimed The Elephant Man, visionary filmmaker David Lynch set his sights on bringing Frank Herbert’s beloved sci-fi novel Dune to the screen. The project had already vexed directors such as Alejandro Jodorowsky (El Topo) and Ridley Scott (Alien). But by the early ‘80s Lynch was given the keys to the kingdom – and one of the highest film budgets at the time – so that he could lend his surrealistic chops to this sprawling story of feuding space dynasties. They would also hopefully be creating a “Star Wars for adults” franchise-starter.
