EUbits: Fate of the Jedi tidbits, Zahn’s Insider short

Fate of the Jedi. in lieu of of a Heir to the Empire annotation yesterday, The Del Rey folks presented us with a mini-excerpt from Golden’s Ascension. It is indeed very mini. (Also, apparently we’ll be getting a look at the Apocalypse cover today.)

Short stories. Tim Zahn’s story ‘Buyer’s Market’ will appear in the next issue of the Insider. It’s about Lando “on the hunt for some rather exotic hardware” and is set between Return of the Jedi and Heir. The artwork is by Brian Rood. Also coming up in the Insider is a story by Michael Reaves and Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff.

Interviews. Del Rey’s Erich Schoeneweiss appears on the latest Fictional Frontiers.

Previews. has five pages from The Old Republic: The Lost Suns.

Lists. There are several facepalm moments for me in Geeks of Doom’s ten Star Wars novels worth checking out (Splinter of the Minds’ Eye? The New Rebellion?? Vector Prime???) but to each their own, I suppose.

  1. Whooa! Are you saying you didn’t like Vector Prime? I loved that book, it introduced a whole new era of the EU.

  2. Nope, not a fan of Vector Prime. I have issues with the NJO as a whole, but overall thought VP was just a horribly written book, a lackluster start that did the series/era no favors at all. (It’s not the Chewie thing. I was facepalming from Mara’s first scene on — at least.)

  3. I think we’re like polar opposites on the EU. If you were Superman I’d be Lex Luthor.
