Tidbits from Random House’s fall catalog

Random House’s fall catalog is now available to the pixel-soaked masses, and there’s not a ton of news in it… Mostly the standard publicity stuff: Author podcasts, convention appearances, 501st marketing events.

  • Death Troopers (page 113) will have a fan cover design contest and a special cover with a full-color poster on the reverse. (The winning entry to the contest, perhaps?)

  • Another free e-story will be coming with Fate of the Jedi: Abyss (page 107.)
  • The Complete Vader (page 111) will.. uhh.. be shrink-wrapped? You’re probably better off looking at StarWar.com’s preview pages.
  • Darth Bane: Dynasty of Evil has the same blurb we saw with the cover announcement. It’s hanging out on page 115.

Keep in mind this catalog copy is done fairly early on, so all this is subject to change… And no, there’s nothing Star Wars in the trade paperback catalog – the next Clone Wars book isn’t due out until February.

EUbits: Hyperspace fiction, Bohnhoff, Insider, book club and free Clones

The fiction is coming from inside the house! The latest piece of Hyperspace original fiction, ‘Death in the Slave Pits of Lorrd,’ is by TFN’s Adrick “TalonCard” Tolliver.

EUbits: Bohnhoff, street date, Stover maybe

  • A Padwan’s Journal: Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff writes about dealing with icons in her tenth entry.

  • Street date shuffle: Drew Karpyshyn’s Dynasty of Evil has moved up a week to December 8. Book release schedule is thatta way.
  • The blogside: Matthew Stover has updated his blog with news of some upcoming projects, including two more tie-ins. Now note, there’s nothing about them being Star Wars, but they certainly could be.

EU blogbits: Drew Karpyshyn on Bane #3, TOR; Dan Wallace’s Essential Atlas quotes

Drew Karpyshyn talks just a wee bit about Darth Bane: Dynasty of Evil on his StarWars.com blog… And he’s moving to Austin to help out with that MMO thing Bioware is working on. People seem pretty geeked about that.

In other bloggy news, Dan Wallace has a few quotes from The Essential Atlas, which is still scheduled for a July release.

Official blurbs for Deathtroopers and Darth Bane: Dynasty of Evil

The official site has revealed the blurbs for two upcoming books: Joe Schreiber’s Deathtroopers and Drew Karpyshyn’s Darth Bane: Dynasty of Evil. The Deathtroopers summary resembles the one that Amazon UK was sporting, but note it doesn’t mention any specific characters. Read them both under the cut. Continue reading

Bane #3 title, Fate of the Jedi: Omen blurb

Two big bits of book news on the official site today: The title for Drew Karpyshyn’s third Darth Bane novel, Dynasty of Evil, and the blurb for the second Fate of the Jedi book, Christie Golden’s Omen. It contains what looks like some spoilers for the first book, Outcast, so it’s black-barred beneath the cut. Continue reading

Poll results: Anticipating the new publishing contract

Behold, the next three years of Star Wars publishing, ranked by CJ readers. Most of you seem to be looking forward to Fate of the Jedi: This poll also got more votes than the second, 172 to 143. Of the second poll, which asked you to choose from among the rest of the new contract’s fiction (at least those that we have some detail on) the clear winners were those that have established fanbases: Cunningham’s Blood Oath, featuring charter member of the Jaina Solo harem, Zekk; Irvine’s Knights of the Old Republic novel, set just before the popular games; Traviss’ Imperial Commando; and Drew Karpyshyn’s third Darth Bane novel. The rest are certain to see their stock rise as we get more details.
