Hoary Tales of Dune: Fanfic with a Bite

Contest Winners

The seven judges have reached their decision and here are the results for the first Dune Fan Fiction Contest.

1st Place: Entry #5, by Tleszer

2nd Place: A tie between Entry #7, by Dante, and Entry #11, by Semuta

3rd Place: Entry #4, by Eyes High

The judges also wanted to give special mention to Entry #6, by Mahnmut.

Congratulations to the winners and our thanks to everyone who submitted an entry to the contest.

One judge also included this special message:

My heartfelt thanks to all these authors — especially those who delved back into Frank’s Dune to speculate on the thoughts and feelings of the lesser characters …. a “third person” take on the events and personalities must be considered ‘legitimate’ — Frank created a large universe of diverse human beings, each with their own motives and perspectives … fertile ground for ‘fan fiction’, to agree or disagree, to support or oppose …. kudos & cookies for all.

    Congratulations to the winners and to the others who participated!

    I would like to say I liked the first place winner, i think it really captures the spirit of Frank’s Dune, and I liked that its written in his stile.

    In regards to the winner of the 3rd place I think it was nice idea to show a character that was just mentioned in the book, and tell his story the way it needed to be told!
