Fate of the Jedi. For those still on board with the most tedious series since the nigh-endless New Jedi Order, there’s finally a blurb for the final volume, Troy Denning’s Apocalypse. I haven’t the slightest idea how spoilery it is since I have yet to make it past the first chapter of Ascension, so head on over to the link to check it out.
X-Wing. In happier news, Erich Schoeneweiss confirms EUCantina’s report that Face Loran will be back – and Myri Antilles will be flying with the Wraiths – in Aaron Allston’s Mercy Kill.
Interviews. Roqoo Depot has an interview with Jeff Grubb, who’s writing next year’s Scourge.

Why haven’t you finished Ascension yet? I enjoyed it.
I tried in the airport on the way to D*C but the first chapter was Sith and *snore.*
the first chapter was indeed Sith, and mostly new and minor ones at that, which did feel odd for a start of a novel in this series. but you don’t need to get too involved with them.
The whole series has been a snoozer. Uninspiring villains/antagonists, too much focus on OCs I don’t care about…And it just feels scattered. I’ve been fruitlessly patient for 7 books, and never really been able to get into it… Meh. I’ll be glad to see the end.
I really like this series, its managed to add the Sith back into the Universe in a non oh look its a minor apprentice/stooge of Vader/Palpatine way. While also changing their outlook and characteristics.
Plus Abeloth is a very cool ‘baddy’ and any book that includes Luke Skywalker being a bad ass still gets my vote.
Massive fanboy post i know but still…
This series takes 9 books and several years to do what would have been a really neat 4 or 5 book series written by one author who could have kept everything coherent.
Hell, it could probably have been a trilogy…
I’ve never fallen asleep reading a Star Wars novel but it’s happened to me twice while reading this series. And I haven’t kept up with it, I don’t even know what the latest novel out is–something I’ve never done since HttE way back when.
Abeloth is a good villain, I wish they’d stop dragging Luke’s ex-girlfriends into her path though. And yes, this series needed to be tied up and done within 4-5 books.
I’ll agree that it could have been shorter. Lets say six books because I like to disagree while appearing to agree ;)
