The EU minute: Japan, Thrawn, Denning

IMAGE: Allegiance

  • New cover from Japan, Timothy Zahn’s Allegiance, over at the Japanese cover gallery. There’s a new Last of the Jedi one up as well. Death Star expected soon, no word on LOTF… (via)

  • Thrawn (and Ackbar) get a little love over at io9’s list of greatest space strategists.
  • TFN reports that author Troy Denning will be on the Philadelphia-area radio show To Be Continued this Sunday.

Lately on StarWars.com…

The very latest in the constant parade of extremely puzzling merchandise is Stormtrooper and Vader golf gear. From Japan, naturally. Gotta give them credit for not just slapping a silkscreen on a generic bag, at least in the case of the Stormtrooper.

It came from Japan: NJO book covers

StarWars.com gets into the meat of the Japanese books covers with the New Jedi Order. These covers have developed quite a following among EU fans for their depiction of the large cast, many of whom have (or had) few reference images before this. (Above: Force Heretic I: Remnant.)

Hopefully there’s a part III, but you can see the Dark Nest covers here for now.
