Epic World-Building: Names and Cultures in Dune
There are two choices of access for my article:
- Accepted Manuscript pre-print version of “Epic World-Building: Names and Cultures in Dune“ (open access PDF download)
- Published article in Names: A Journal of Onomastics 46.2 (2016)
Please share with other science fiction and Frank Herbert Dune fans!
Also, I’m looking forward to discussing the altmetrics “donut” (see above) in a future post for those new to altmetrics like me, so if you share the official “Published article” link (which is what the donut tracks), we can see where it travels.
P.S. Be sure to check out Mark J. P. Wolf’s Building Imaginary Worlds (2012) book for a very interesting and in-depth study of world-building across a variety of media.
