Publisher's 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.

Featured Article: The Best Audiobooks for Fans of Dune


Ever since its publication in 1965, Frank Herbert's Dune has set the bar high for epic science fiction. In fact, Herbert's beloved novel is considered to be one the best sci-fi books of all time. Dune was the recipient of multiple awards, including the inaugural Nebula Award for best novel in 1966. And in October 2021, more than 50 years after the novel's initial release, fans of Dune are being treated to a film adaptation, directed by Denis Villeneuve.

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.

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.

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.
