Audiobooks years after the fact? Plus, the original books were published by Scholastic, which isn’t a Random House imprint, though the audio versions are listed under Random House’s Imagination Studios. (Del Rey’s Star Wars audiobooks are Random House Audio.) Lucasbooks is clearly trying something new here, but we’re still awaiting some kind of confirmation…
Subscribers may (or may not) already have their copies, but everyone else can look for Star Wars Insider #99 in stores… I’ve also heard rumblings that Jude Watson’s latest Last of the Jedi novel, Master of Deception has been sighted on store shelves.
After Jedi Apprentice came Jedi Quest. But what’s next for Jude Watson?
Scholastic announced a new kids’ series today. The 39 Clues is a series that will mix books, collectible cards, and online gaming. It’s all supposed to fit together like a giant puzzle.
The New York Times says this is Scholastic’s bid to follow up on their success as the U.S. publishers of Harry Potter. The books will be written by different authors (sound familiar, EU fans?) and Jude Watson is signed to write the fourth book, due out in July 2009.
