I realize that I am in the minority here, but I’ve always thought that getting books signed by their author is rather pointless. So I really don’t understand why anyone would want to bother getting an edition of a Star Wars novel with a personalized dedication page. (At least they’re not offering to do a find-and-replace with [insert character here]?) I suppose it makes sense for gifts, and it’s getting be that season… But still. Oh well: Whatever floats your boat.
EU Cantina has posted their interview with James Luceno. Topics include writing, Millennium Falcon, Brian Daley, and the future of the EU. They’re also taking questions for their next interview, with Lucasfilm Licensing Executive editor Sue Rostoni.
- Upcoming: …Speaking of, Sue made a rare weekend appearance on StarWars.com this afternoon to confirm that there will be some sort of novel tie-in for The Old Republic MMO, though the details are still up in the air. She also touches on the Fate of the Jedi covers.
- Comics: Buy The Clone Wars movie at Target, get a free variant-cover copy of Shipyards of Doom.
