My article on the need to use science fiction to prepare for better futures, published in the Clingendael Spectator.
Religions and Dune
I initially wrote this article for an academic journal, Journal for Religion, Film and Media, who decided not to publish it as I was not making references to its editors. As I have no interest in publishing peer-reviewed articles, I prefer to publish Religions and Dune on my own website. You're very welcome to use it, just mention my name if you do.
Published in 2007, this is my first book on propaganda! the first edition got sold out in 3 months.

I contributed a chapter in this book about super heroes (2017). My part deals with the origins of the super heroes and their possible futures.
I wrote for the French Slate between 2009 and 2015 and have published many articles, mostly about mass communication, cinema, but also Science Fiction, the Middle East, and of course The Netherlands.
