Dear Readers Of This Epic Shakespearean Science-Fiction Adventure:
I am in the process of doing more writing than ever before, and this is causing me to face some painful decisions: one of them is what to do about the William Shakespeare’s Dune Project, which is an unpaid labor of love.
I will admit that I was tempted to move this project to my Patreon site, making it accessible for my patrons only. But honestly, I hate when creators I follow do things like that, so I have decided to keep this project here, and free.
This does, however, come at some cost to me. The writing I am doing for pay is going to have to come first. If you want to encourage this project to continue to update weekly, I ask that you support me by joining me on Patreon. You can get access to my patron feed for as little as $1.00 per month. Honestly, at this point, I would far rather have 10 patrons at the $1.00 level than one patron at the $10.00 level.
So if you have valued this project, as I know some of you have, I ask you to do the following:
1) Support me on Patreon, and let me know you’re supporting me because of this. Trust me, I will take the hint and keep up on this project.
2) Spread the word about this project to other Dune and Shakespeare sites or groups you might be part of. One fan talking about it once is more effective than all the talking about it I can do.
3) Finally, take the time to let me know you’re enjoying it, because that matters, too. Often, this whole blog feels like shouting into the void, so encouragement matters, too, although promotion and donation is even better. As the Reduced Shakespeare Company famously noted: “Give us your cash, if we be friends/And deduct it when the tax year ends.”
Thank you all.
And now, Without Further Ado About Nothing As Much As You Like It, we present Act III, Scene iv, in which Paul Atreides sets forth his plan to dominate the galaxy to both of his loyal followers.
