Glossary[edit]

'Stephenson said in an interview that this material is an extension of what many science fiction and fantasy novels already offer.
“I can remember reading Dune for the first time, and I started by reading the glossary,” he said. “Any book that had that kind of extra stuff in it was always hugely fascinating to me.”'

Wilfred (U.S. TV series); http://www.metro.co.uk/tv/reviews/872529-elijah-woods-comedy-wilfred-is-no-dog :

A comedy that kicks off with a failed suicide attempt and follows it up with a beardy bloke in a dog suit lifting quotes from Frank Herbert’s Dune is practically cocking its leg and spraying its self-conscious wackiness all over you....Luckily for him, salvation came in the shape of his next-door neighbour’s dog, the eponymous Wilfred, who Ryan is alone in seeing as a strapping geezer with an Aussie accent.

In the MMORPG Wizard101, sections of the latest world of Mirage borrow from Dune, with many names slightly altered to fit the feline profile of some of that world's inhabitants. JenniferRSong (talk) 00:26, 16 January 2017 (UTC)
