God Emperor’s Dune Sites (March 2009)

This is an old list and has been ARCHIVED.

View the most recent update >>

There are a bewildering plethora of Dune sites and forums out there – many of them very inactive and more exist only in links that point to expired domains. The purpose of this list, and the updated lists that follow it is to establish a long term, updated record of good Dune sites that are active now. Dead sites will be removed and new ones added. Use the comments system to recommend missing sites or report inactive ones.

Discussion

Dedicated Dune forums and discussion boards.

Jacurutu: The Cast Out – Large active membership, free discussion. Prequel fans are welcome, but will have to fight their ground.

Fed2k – Game centric Dune discussion and related resources such as FAQs, patches and more.

Sietch Tabr – A brand new site – still with only limited membership/activity. Some promise though.

Dune Novels.com – The ‘official’ forum. Great for fans of the new Dune books by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson.

De Dune à Rakis – French Dune Forum

Boards with Dune content

Worm’s SciFi Haven – General scifi with a good few Dune fans.

The (Almost) Undeleted – General scifi with a dedicated Dune section and an excellent bibliography of Frank Herbert secondary sources.

Other (less active) Dune boards

Alt.Fan.Dune – Ancient but quiet.

The Landsraad – Used to be an major site before it was migrated to Multiply.

The Dune Encyclopedia at thedune.ru – Download Dr. Willis E. McNelly’s legendary Dune Encyclopedia (*in English) in a fully searchable PDF format. Well worth a look.
