Updates from Sue: Another Reaves/Bohnoff book, Imperial Commando sequel looks like a go

UPDATE: Look, Googlers: There will be no more Imperial or Republic Commando books. Aaron Allston is writing a Wraith Squadron book that took RC #2′s publishing slot. It’s over.

Sue Rostoni has let lose several bits of news on the StarWars.com message boards today:

  • Michael Reaves and Maya Bohnoff will do a fourth Coruscant Nights book with the tentative title of Jedi Dawn. It’s set for November 2012 and is in addition to the 2011 holostar novel.

  • A hardcover has been assigned for March 2012, but the author can’t be revealed yet.
  • Imperial Commando #2 has been scheduled for February 2012. An author has been selected – but the contract hasn’t been signed yet so we’ll have to wait for that reveal. It will likely be the last novel in the series (thus technically making it a duology,… Details, details.)
  • She’s “hoping” that a paperback anthology of John Jackson Miller’s Lost Tribe of the Sith stories will be released in paperback sometime in 2010.

She’s also posted an updated release schedule: I’ll be updating ours later today. Thanks to Eddie for the heads-up!

EUbits: Wallace’s Jedi Path, Kemp and JJM interviews, plus a look back at Tales from Jabba’s Palace

Upcoming. Dan Wallace confirms reports that he’s working on a book called The Jedi Path for Becker+Mayer. (Not that it needed confirmation, being in a catalog, but, uhh… I missed it. Sorry.)

Interviews. DaveBrendon talks to Paul S. Kemp and John Jackson Miller about Crosscurrent, Lost Tribe of the Sith and writing Star Wars. On a related note, JJM has posted his final Knights of the Old Republic production notes.

Blogside. Deborah J. Ross (aka Deborah Wheeler) on how she came to write her story ‘Goatgrass: The Tale of Ree-Yees’ in Tales from Jabba’s Palace.

EUbits: The Gambit marches on

Gambit: Siege. The official site has brewed up the summary for Karen Miller’s final Clone Wars novel. Beware of spoilers: The book is a direct sequel to next month’s Gambit: Stealth.

And in other previews… Teasing the next installment of John Jackson Miller’s Lost Tribe of the Sith, coming February 10th.

Gaming, sort of. Artist Terese Nielsen talks to StarWars.com about her character portraits for WOTC’s latest miniature line.

Interview. Jason Fry talks Atlas with Gelf Magazine.

Namesake corner. Neat Mara Jade drawing.

EUbits: Fun with faux castings, looking for ‘Sith,’ Atlas endnotes, Bohnhoff’s alien homework

Let's see, we need someone who can pull off mall hair...Winceworthy. Geekdad’s Lonnie Morgan gets a bit too into reading Star Wars novels and celebrates by inflicting yet another round of fantasy casting upon the internets. (I dislike this kind of thing: They all tend to come out in fail.) There’s also a poll on which (if any) EU series/era you’d like to see come to the screen.

Lost Tribe of the Sith: Sue Rostoni gave a tentative date of February 9th for the next installment of the Fate of the Jedi tie-in ebooks. That’s about a month before the fourth book, Allston’s Backlash, is due out.

The blogside: Dan Wallace and Jason Fry continue with their Essential Atlas endnotes; Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff on dealing with aliens.

Podcasts: Thursday’s EUCast (7pm EST) will focus on Mara Jade.

Comic previews: Invasion #3, Knights of the Old Republic #45, and The Clone Wars #9.

Gaming: A 20-minute video walkthrough of The Old Republic MMO.

Also for free: Lost Tribe of the Sith eBook

lost-tribe-1UPDATE: And it’s up on StarWars.com.

I really really hate linking directly to PDFs, but since Borders themselves are loath to give it an actual product page, instead just tossing it the sidebar on their Sci-Fi page , here it is: Lost Tribe of the Sith #1: Precipice, for free on Borders.com. (via) And yes, Sue Rostoni did confirm that it is for real yesterday, in case the PDF isn’t proof enough.

If nothing else, there’s a Sith-centric Fate of the Jedi: Omen preview in there, starting on page 31.

eBook tie-in to Fate of the Jedi? Uhh… Maybe?

Rebelscum has discovered… somehow… what they say is a Fate of the Jedi eBook tie-in: Lost Tribe of the Sith 1: Precipice by Knights of the Old Republic’s John Jackson Miller. Looks like a duck, quacks like a duck and I doubt they made it up out of whole cloth. Hopefully this means we’ll get official info very soon.
