Poll: Your thoughts on Fate of the Jedi: Omen

omen-horizSo Christie Golden’s first foray into the GFFA and the second book of the latest series has been out for nearly a week now… Time to put up the book poll.

But first, here are a few reviews from out and around the web: TheForce.Net staff, EU Cantina, Big Shiny Robot, Starlog, Graeme’s Fantasy Book Review, and NJOE. Or get down with the unwashed masses at the TFN Lit’s official review thread. I haven’t read any of them yet: I won’t until after I do my own review in a few days, so forgive me the simple listing.

Given the book’s blurb, her red eyes, red lightsaber, knife, leather and tattoos, we can feel somewhat confidant in thinking she’s a Sith, but what other role can she possibly play? I’ve given you a few options beneath the cut. Continue reading “Poll: It’s wacky Fate of the Jedi theory time!”

Poll: Ready for Dark Horse’s NJO Invasion?

Last weekend at NYCC, Dark Horse announced Invasion, a new ongoing series set during the massive New Jedi Order series. Fandom, at least the TFN version, went wild with fanboy squee at the news. But for many of us, the NJO and the five years of books detailing it is something we’d rather put behind us. Do you have faith in Dark Horse’s ability to revitalize (or recapture) the era?
