Dune Fan Fiction Contest

In 2010, Hairy Ticks of Dune in conjunction with Jacurutu held the first ever Dune Fan Fiction Contest. As an unofficial, unauthorized and completely fan-organized event (further details here), the contest was dedicated to honoring and exploring the legacy of Frank Herbert as represented by his Dune books and stories.
