The paperback of Death Star, by by Steve Perry & Michael Reaves, will be cruising into bookstores tomorrow. Roleplayers or the detail-oriented might also want to look for WOTC’s Scum and Villainy supplement, which came out last week.
As for comic fans, Wednesday will bring the Vector storyline even closer to an end with part 11 (of 12) in Legacy #30.
Over at RandomHouse.com, there’s a new release date for Dan Wallace and Jason Fry’s The Essential Atlas – February 25, 2009. (It was previously in for this September.) On the plus side, we learn that it will total 256 pages, just a tad heftier than Wallace’s New Essential Chronology.
In a less dramatic move, the Death Star paperback jumped forward two weeks to a November 25 release… Our book release schedule has been updated thusly.
Was checking up on our book schedule last night, and noticed that the release date for the third Coruscant Nights novel, Patterns of the Force, has been pushed back to January 27th – more than understandable given Michael Reaves’ health issues, so hold the bitching.
Happier news comes in the form of two paperback reprints – Death Star is set for November 11th, and Darth Bane: Rule of Two for October 28.
Our Star Wars book release schedule has been thus updated.
Sue Rostoni posted the Dramatis Personae for the upcoming Death Star by Steve Perry and Michael Reaves. The book comes out in September, and the DP is quoted beneath the cut.
Sue reveals what potion of the Dark Times era they’re allowed – less than you might think:
The major portion of the Dark Times era, the time between Ep3 & 4, is still off-limits for development. We’re allowed one year after Ep3 and one year before Ep4.
And good news on the Death Star front – as well as the typeface, for you font geeks.
I’m presently reading the page proofs for DEATH STAR. A good read — a nice combo of known and unknown characters — a super story. And for those of you who enjoy page counts, it’s 363 pages long.
Also, the back cover copy for Inferno ought to be showing up on starwars.com soon.
Out of nowhere today comes the news that Steve Perry and Michael Reaves (MedStar Duology) have signed on to write a novel about “the convoluted history of the Death Star and the personalities that led to its creation.” It’s set between ROTS and ANH.
They’re going to need the industrial-strength spackle for this one: Can AOTC and KJA be reconciled? We’ll find out in 2007…
