Summary

Frank Herbert’s magnificent Dune saga sprawls across countless planets and tens of millennia. Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson have written 13 international best-selling novels set in this epic universe. But the wealth of material leaves many side tales or interesting ideas that can be told - hors d’oeuvres to accompany the exotic main course.

Sometimes, a short story is exactly what’s needed.

Tales of Dune collects eight of Herbert and Anderson’s Dune short stories, ranging from the period of the Butlerian Jihad to the time of young Paul Atreides to a story set during the events of the novel Dune to the very end of Frank Herbert’s future history.

These are the missing pieces in the epic of Dune.

Great stories, but..

Audible..please could you make it standard practice to NAME each chapter, and not just say 1,2,3 etc., especially when each chapter is a standalone story and is part of chronological order. Such a small amount of extra effort would make the overall experience much better. Thank you.

the boy isnt as good as his father.

i love the Dune series. you have trekkies, starwars nerds and then there's me. Dune Nerd. Frank's son doesnt quite have the writing style of his father but these little bits added flair to the story line. if you havent read or heard any of the Dune novels then this probably isnt for you.

Perfect for the Dune Lover

I put off getting this book because of how short it was but finally getting it I’m happy I did. The stories are really insightful and worth listening to.

Little Gems

This provides bite-sized vignettes of the Dune Universe. Each are character-building when main characters appear. Others are expansions of minor characters or just world building. But because they are short stories, the details are rich and the depth of meaning easier to appreciate. As stated in my title, little gems.

Small snippets of a large universe.

It was nice to hear these little between stories and run offs of the other larger volumes. I will look and hope there are others. As in other sci fi, there are fan based stories.

Excellent extras

These short stories are excellent additions to the dune mythos. Especially helpful is the chronology and the notes before each story to help place it in the proper sequence of events. A must for dune fans.
