The lovely folks at Orion have given us two copies of their gorgeous new hardcover edition of Frank Herbert’s Dune, with beautiful end pages and foil print dust jacket.
Dune of course needs no introduction, especially not right now as we countdown to the release of Denis Villeneuve’s big-screen epic, and we’re getting in the mood with a season of special long reads.
We hope you get a kick out of them:
- How We Made the 2000 Sci-Fi Channel Miniseries
- Liet Kynes: The Blackness of the Real Messiah
- Making Modiphius’s Adventures in the Imperium RPG
- How We Made Sci-Fi Channel’s Children of Dune
- The Nightmare Coloring Book That Saved My Childhood
The competition closes 25 October. Good luck! If the submission form is not working on your device, please feel free to email email@example.com and submit your details there.

Fandom needs your help. Nobody else writes the deep dive articles we do. Nobody else creates in-depth interview podcasts or invites you to put questions to showrunners and stars. And nobody else treats your favorite sci-fi shows and movies like they matter – like they can save lives or change them – but we do.
None of that is cheap. Great writing costs money, original analysis costs money, and audio/video production costs money. We keep our costs as low as we can, but we refuse to compromise on quality.
We’re not backed by studios or massive media conglomerates. There are five of us fighting every second to make The Companion all that it can be. We’ll never accept paid advertising on The Companion because if we did we wouldn’t be able to write about whatever you like, the way that you like.
That’s why we need geeks like you to join us.
Sign up now for a free trial. If you don’t like it, simply cancel and you won’t be charged. But if you do stay, your membership goes towards creating more of the content you love on the sci-fi shows and movies that you love.
