Very cool

Also, glowing blue eyes would look pretty amazing in SL.

The Dune series was among the first of my forays into serious science fiction, and among my favorites even now. I can't wait to see the sandworms in motion! What reader hasn't wished they could try it?

I loved the first several Dune books, and everyone who likes Dune should also try to find a copy of the spoof "Doon: The Dessert Planet." Read it aloud with friends.

Thanks for mentioning the SL Dune -- I'll go visit it sometime!

Ya Hya Chouhada!

Arruckus, DOON, dessert planet! Schmai Gunug be willing, steak for dinner sometime soon.


I'm thrilled you did an article on this, Jamlet! I am of course a *tremendous* Dune fan; while my range is mostly limited to the earlier Frank Herbert canon, I did want to find out how Sandworms of Dune ended. I enjoyed visiting this Dune sim and the artistry put into it, and as related in my Flickr stream, I found some others, too. (Perhaps they could all combine and form a Dune enthusiast's rather "sandy" dream? ;) )

I do appreciate the "what if" path they've taken. However, I must mention that the spelling is "Muad'Dib".

/me looks forward to see a ride-able sandworm I can get atop of with a maker hook!
