Missing Dune Stories


Recommended Posts

So I have started reading Dune books on my kindle. I have finished the original series and moved on to the prequel novels.

Most of the dune books I can get through kindle but not all.


On this website it mentions two short stories that I can’t find: 

“Blood and Water” (stand-alone excerpt from House Harkonnen)




“Freuen Justice” (Also published as “Nighttime Shadows of Open Sand” standalone excerpt from House Corrino)

I have bought the Kindle versions of House Harkonnen and House Corrino from Amazon. There are two different versions of these books so I bought both of them but neither of them includes those short stories.

I have read that both of these stories are included in an older edition of “Tales of dune” but on Amazon there is only the newer edition available that doesn’t include those short stories anymore.


My favorite option would be to buy these stories as an ebook. But assuming they are not available in that format is there a PDF of them online.

Alternatively I would also be willing to purchase physical copies of either “Tales of dune” or “House Harkonnen” and “House Corrino” that include them.

However I don’t want to those books that I already own digital copies from just to find out that they don’t include those short stories either.

so my question is can anyone on this forum point me in the direction of how to read those stories?

I did a bit of digging and it seems that these "standalone excerpts" were signed, limited-edition prints available from some book publishers. You can see an ad for "Fremen Justice" here in a Wayback Machine snapshot of dunenovels.com:

At least one such story was available as a free PDF download, found at the top of the same page.
