Here’s a reason to get in on that Hyperspace thing, at least if you’re in the Bay Area: An email invite went out from Lucasfilm’s Mary Franklin to San Francisco-area fans for a special screening of The Clone Wars – followed by a Q&A with Dave Filoni – on Monday.
StarWars.com has a brand-new Alex Winger story from Charlene Newcomb today! But per usual, you need Hyperspace to read it… I’m not sure if you can buy Hyperspace for someone else, but a membership might make a nice last-minute holiday gift for your favorite WEG-reading old-schooler.
Free book, sort of. Paul S. Kemp is giving away three signed, unbound galleys of his January Star WarsCrosscurrent. Enter through Dec. 18.
The blogside Karen Miller finished the rewrite of Clone Wars Gambit: Siege this week – twice. And Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff takes a look at forceful women and… Pets. When’s the last time we saw pets in the EU? I’m not sure I want to know. (Pittens in Children of the Jedi? Oye vey.)
Hyperspace. Discounting the Wookieepedians (with their love of War and Peace-sized character entries,) only Jason Fry could dedicate a week to Xim and the Tion Cluster.
Your moment of zen. The TFN boards have been quite the font of hilarity lately. First there’s the otter thing, and then the LULZ of reading KJA. Of course, then along comes something like this. Oh, TFN.
Still nothing official, though. An extended title for the unconfirmed novel by Sean Williams was spotted on Amazon: The Old Republic: Fatal Alliance. (The release date remains listed as July 2010, but we still don’t have a date for the actual game, so count on nothing at this point.) Wonder if this means we’ll get some kind of official announcement soon?
Authors. Aaron Allston is on Twitter. Sort of.
Hyperspace: Go obscure with The Forgotten War: The Nagai and the Tofs by James McFadden.
