Sue Rostoni was out on the boards today, and though she didn’t say much, she did say that Zekk, left adrift after the cancellation of the standalone Blood Oath, will make an appearance in Fate of the Jedi. She also clarified that the lack of an epic series post-FOTJ will not mean any less books.
Meanwhile, in the fan realm, TFN has a source that claims we’ll find out the fate of a familiar face in book five, Golden’s Allies. I don’t find this particularly worrying, mainly because Backlash is an Allston book. Sorry, I misread this originally, and honestly now I’m a lot more doubtful of this ‘spoiler.’ Not because of Golden, but because it seems too early for Allies ARCs, the most likely source for something like this.
In any case, this news is going to be blown totally out of proportion by the fandom. Thanks, Paul. :P
More disturbing-clad slave-world action in tomorrow’s only Star Wars release, The Clone Wars #4. And on the subject of future releases, there are Fate of the Jedi: Outcast spoilers out and about already. (The book is out March 24, and it seems early even for regular reader copies: It appears ARCs are the culprit.) If you’re into spoilers, you know where to go to find them; If you’re not, it’s time to avoid a few key sites.
Two big bits of book news on the official site today: The title for Drew Karpyshyn’s third Darth Bane novel, Dynasty of Evil, and the blurb for the second Fate of the Jedi book, Christie Golden’s Omen. It contains what looks like some spoilers for the first book, Outcast, so it’s black-barred beneath the cut. Continue reading →
Tonight’s episode is ‘Lair of Grievous,’ which sounds kinda like a Scooby Doo episode. I’m not sure what that makes Kit Fisto, but considering who was present at Grievous’ debut it’s probably at least a little appropriate.
Last week: I’m doing this earlier than usual, so ‘Cloak of Darkness’ isn’t up yet, but you’ll find it here when it does. In the meantime, watch the Takeuchi video!
When a group of women are abducted in the wintry hills of rural Virginia, the only clues to their disappearance are the grotesque human remains that begin to turn up in snow banks along the highway. With officials desperate for any lead, a disgraced priest’s questionable “visions” send local police on a wild goose chase and straight to a bizarre secret medical experiment that may or may not be connected to the women’s disappearance. It’s a case right out of The X-Files. But the FBI closed down its investigations into the paranormal years ago. And the best team for the job is ex-agents Fox Mulder and Dr. Dana Scully, who have no desire to revisit their dark past.
A summary has reportedly appeared on the Science Fiction Book Club website and is available only to members, but someone at the Wookieepedia cut and pasted it.
VERIFIED: Paula logged into the SFBC and this is indeed the one they have posted.
The club writes their own summaries (check out the different Betrayal blurbs at SFBC and Random House) so it’s not too surprising that this is different from the last. (Which still hasn’t been confirmed – they’re keeping a tight lid on this one.)
It’s a long one, so spoilers are under the cut. Click and highlight at your own risk. Continue reading →
WARNING: Possible spoilers for Revelation, which comes out at the end of the month.
Convinced that Darth Caedus, the Sith Lord who began life as Jacen Solo, must be destroyed, Luke Skywalker worries his vision is tainted by his own desire for revenge. It now falls to Jaina Solo to fulfill her destiny and confront the horrific tyrant who was once her twin brother, in the stunning conclusion to the Legacy of the Force series.
Some photos of some of the 2008 LEGO sets have surfaced, and the Indiana Jones sets have our adventuring archaeologist alongside his allies and enemies, and a bunch of LEGO critters in the Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull sets. Check it out here. Meanwhile, the LEGO Indiana Jones site is not quite ready, though it’s January!
