Which explains why you are such a prequelite

AFAIK, house Ordos, at least in this latest installment, were the "wierd" side, having all the "fun" tech...though sometimes all you want is a bloody simple tank if you ask me.
I never knew it was from the DE(as I haven't bothered to read it), I thought Westwood made them up on their own to have another side besides Harkonnen and Atreides.

I originally wrote it because I thought that since people bothered to use them in a computer game, somebody should have them written into litertature other than a vague reference in the Dune Encyclopedia. I could not find anything so I wrote something myself. Because somebody's got to do it.
It's still available to read on the Dunenovels forum on the fan fiction thread.
Anyway I still wait for more fan fiction on House Ordos to show up on the Internet.
Speaking of fan fiction, remember some great gems like Dune Revenant and of course for fans of parodies and satire: Trannies of Dune. I even considered printing four of them out and putting them on my bookshelf along with Frank Herbert's novels and the new Dune novels that I read.
