The following author has provided me with this fan fiction account written
regarding the Dune Universe. Below is a bio he sent to me.
Read the Book
"I am Marco van Leeuwen
(principal construction of this unit was completed on
January 25th, 1976), an unusual person on the Net and downright odd in
life - but in a decidedly non-threatening way (don't worry, I'm harmless).
One of the oddities I like to indulge in is philosophy (because there is
nothing so strange as a consequenceless heap of protoplasm, cartilage and
mucus attempting to understand himself), another the written word. I also
like Katie Holmes, Transformers (the toys, not the electrical devices) and
chocolate, but that is currently beside the point.
Since I'd love to be an actual, honest-to-gosh writer
one day, I decided to
construct the thing you're about to start reading: one of the texts with
which I intend to express my (almost) boundless admiration of Frank
and his wonderful Dune Chronicles. I sincerely hope there are a few people
out there with strong enough stomachs to endure the madness that I felt
compelled to unleash upon the electronic page, and make it all the way to
the end of the 43th part.
Don't hesitate to contact me at <firstname.lastname@example.org>
to let me know -
naturally in a calm and civil manner - how much you'd like to kick my ass
for abusing Frank's creations the way I did, but I honestly hope what I
up with manages to entertain and/or stimulate you somehow. If, like me,
love Dune, Twin Peaks and The Sandman (comic book series by Neil Gaiman),
you might like my story. Or not."
