some goods links

This is not really the DE but there are some interesting links there
http://www.pdf-search-engine.com

Dune Genesis by Frank Herbert

Semantics, General Semantics, and Ecology in Frank Herbert's Dune

Meanings and authorships in Dune Tony Todd(about the Lynch movie)

Politics and power: communicative action in FH's Dune
http://www.gebser.org/publications/Inte ... s.Dune.pdf

I just hope that my not using the search here won't lead to someone going "hey man I posted that years ago"

I jus hope I could do print out for free, I don't really like reading from the pc...

Check this out, lotek. It's Dune only:

That is a work in progress, and I have a ton of stuff to add. Some other people will be adding an enormous Frank Herbert bibliography/archive on my website over the next year or so. You should check back, even though its not done yet:

Those are actually considered a fairly classic set of rules. Believe it or not, the game does a great job of making the players feel like they are a part of the early parts of the Dune saga (the setting, for those who might care, is in the time directly following the Atreides family's relocation to Arrakis).

Here's another perspective: the BoardgameGeek database contains well over 10,000 games. Dune is currently ranked 59th by the users of the site.

Yeah, the French edition is highly sought-after by North American collectors. It included the basic game, plus both expansion sets (which can be hard to find separately). The graphics are generally considered to be very attractive, too.

A good friend of my brother's, Ryan Macklin, who is a big gaming blogger, recommends a game called Jihad. Ive read throug the game book. It's based loosely on Dune.
