God Emperor’s Dune Sites (May 2009)

This is an old list and has been ARCHIVED.

View the most recent update >>

There are a huge number 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 as well as ‘old faithfuls” that are still on-line. Dead sites will be removed and new ones added. Use the comments system to recommend missing sites or report inactive ones. Thanks :)

This is the second version of this listing, the updates are relatively minor.

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 as a Jacurutu/DN middle road though. Has an attached Dune Wiki site.

De Dune à Rakis – French Dune Forum.

Dune Novels.com – The ‘official’ forum. Great for fans of the new Dune books by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson, less great for any kind of critical thinking. Posts are routinely EDITED BY THE ALMIGHTY MODERATOR or simply deleted. Without explanation The Fish Speaker appears to have been black-listed by DuneNovels – and I think it’s only fair to return the favour.

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.

KJA Special Forces – A secret invitation only haven for fans of Kevin J. Anderson’s work.

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.

Dune Blogs

Hairy Ticks of Dune – Unrelenting stream of bile focussed on the new Dune books and their author.

Kevin J. Anderson’s Blog – The author of the new Dune books.

Resources

Dune Index – Book covers, collectors and more.

Dune – Behind the Scenes – Heaps of info on David Lynch’s 1984 film as well as Alejandro Jodorowsky’s ill fated attempt.

Collectors of Dune – Complete listings for everything Dune related that you might be able to find on eBay.

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.

OrthodoxHerbertarian.ttf – The Dune Font – My own recreation of the font used on classic US Ace editions of the Dune Chronicles and other FH books.

Usul’s Homepage – Lots of resources including Dune 7 fan-fiction and a very handy pronunciation guide featuring Frank Herbert himself.

The Dune Wiki – Wikia wiki dedicated to Dune.

Cave of Birds – Excellent resource for quotes from most FH novels.

I, Scytale – Fanfiction

  1. Hello,

    regarding De Dune à Rakis – French Dune Forum.
    i see with delight that you are aware of and update the recent move of server. that’s great from you :)
    can you also please mention close to it that the French community is about building up a wiki-dune (in French). the address is given on the first page of the forum.

    we try also to bring a Facebook group alive to drive some flow toward our Forum.
