Blood Oath in flux. The fan sites and forums are seeing some buzz about the strange vanishing of Elaine Cunningham’s whatever-happened-to-Zekk paperback from the various online catalogs and booksellers. (Last things we heard were a cover and a postponement.) It is rather mysterious, but I’m willing to wait this one out…
Hyperspace/Fate of the Jedi: A Sithly short story by Christie Golden is part of the latest Fan Club Kit, as is a nice Adam Hughes poster from Dark Horse and a lot of Clone Wars stuff.
Meanwhile, we have another sighting: Literary agent Colleen Lindsay, with nothing but praise.
Solicitations: StarWars.com has the May 2009 comics, including Star Wars Adventures: Princess Leia and the Royal Ransom, Legacy #6, Knights of the Old Republic #41, Dark Times #14 and The Clone Wars #6.
Comics: There’s a new update from Editor Randy Stradley on Dark Horse’s Star Wars Zone, and it’s of particular interest to you Dark Times fans. A new story will appear (online, for free) in the January and February issues of Dark Horse Presents on MySpace, with the comic coming back into regular rotation with #13 in April. (Thanks, Zee Zee!)
There’s a new Hyperspace short story – ‘Fists of Iron’ by Ed Erdelac – a fan who has previously contributed a What’s the Story. (Well, don’t get too excited, fanfic writers – he does have a few publishing credits.)
Halloween kinda snuck up on me this year – clearly I haven’t been looking at our referral logs as the numbers rise with people looking for ‘Star Wars pumpkins’ and other tokens of the season. Those are already dying off, but for you last-minute Googlers, check out StarWars.com’s collection of crafts, audio, and costumes. You can also check out our halloween tag, though no guarantees all the links will still work.
