Books and Mags

Um. Did anyone miss me, last week? Atlanta had an ice storm and I wasn’t about to go out with the crazy people to see if Labyrinth of Evil had officially hit the bookshelves. So, let’s get on with it…

Next week is usually the big release week for magazines (and I suspect there’ll be a lot as we get closer to May 19th), but we did have one this week.
Sci Fi Magazine – April 2005 – This cover claims (in rather large letters) that it has major spoilers inside; mostly for Episode 3. Since I’ve been bitten one too many times for my level of spoilerdom, lately, I have declined to look to see if they’re just full of it. If someone else did so, please advise in the comments.

Labyrinth of Evil – James Luceno – This story will take us up to the events of Clone Wars Cartoon, Volume 2. Then Clone Wars takes us right up to the opening crawl. In this one, Obi-Wan and Anakin go on yet another mission to rid the galaxy of all things Trade Federation when they get a lead on the infamous Darth Sidious. Will they figure it out? Will this just make it all the more annoying to wait for Episode 3 to be released?

Secrets of the Jedi – Jude Watson – Ah, yes. This is the one, Wantons. We always knew something was up between Obi-Wan and Siri. Now we be gettin’ us some confirmation! This is a hardcover in the Jedi Apprentice series featuring two generations of masters and apprentice (Qui-Gon/Obi-Wan and Obi-Wan/Anakin). Wackiness ensues when Anakin’s wife comes along on the mission. Much angst to ensue, as well, I’m sure.
