I guess someone threw the Scoundrels switch yesterday, because there’s been a minor flood of coverage for Timothy Zahn’s book.
MTV Geek has a book trailer which I can’t bring myself to watch. (Sorry, I Have Issues with the entire concept. Blame Vector Prime.)
Perhaps paying homage to one of our fandom’s oldest traditions, Suvudu has a “holiday card insert” so you can gift the book ahead of the official release date. And it looks like they’re ‘introducing’ the individual scoundrels one-by-one, starting with Lando.
Tricia at Fangirl has an interview with Zahn – with more coming in the Insider.
And finally, I believe this may be our first official review: Tor’s Emily Asher-Perrin says it’s “just like a normal heist only much, much better.”
The book is, once again, not out until January 1st.

I never understood how it got pushed past the holiday buying season. Hopefully it will get a boost from gift card purchases.
I’m with Paula. I put it on my wish list anyway and noted the release date. Over the years I’ve given my sister an IOU for a book that wasn’t conveniently available for either Christmas or her birthday. I’m hoping she’ll do the same. :)
it seems that there’s been a SW book released in the post-Dec 25 pocket for the past few years. aggravating as all heck. but maybe they know what they are doing?
hmm: it seems they do it frequently:
2007: Dec 26: Darth Bane: Rule of Two
2008: Dec 30: Luke Skywalker and the Shadows of Mindor
2010: Dec 28: Red Harvest
2011-2012: Jan 10: Darth Plagueis
2012-2013: Jan 1: Scoundrels
Actually, Scoundrels has been reviewed already on Amazon.com by several people, including me. While I don’t know if it qualifies as an “official” review, if anybody is interested in seeing my take on it click on my name above for the link.
