Wait, what? Mindor and Falcon swap dates

IMAGE: Rogue Leader by Dave SeeleySo sayth the official blog this evening: Stover’s Luke Skywalker and the Shadows of Mindor has been moved back to December, and Luceno’s Millennium Falcon moved up to October. But the main focus of the post is a nice bit from artist Dave Seeley on the how and why of the image, and we get our first look at Mindor’s back cover – Lord Shadowspawn.

This is also the second time we’ve gotten a real news item via the blog… Interesting, no? (I suppose an all-Flash site would be mildly bearable if this method continues. Permalinks good!)

Yes, yes, I’m updating the book schedule.

UPDATE 05/20: On TOS, we have word from Sue Rostoni on the how and why of the switch:

Matt is late with his manuscript, and Jim is early — just made sense to swap them to give us a bit more time.

Poll: Upcoming Star Wars novels

IMAGE: 2008 novels, and no, that is not the real MF cover, just a ROTJ still.

Our latest poll went up yesterday, and asks which upcoming novel you’re straining at the bit for – The Coruscant Nights trilogy by Michael Reaves (The first book, Jedi Twilight, comes out in two weeks,) Karen Traviss’ Order 66 (September 16,) Matthew Stover’s Luke Skywalker and the Shadows of Mindor (December) or James Luceno’s Millennium Falcon (October.) Vote on the sidebar or under the cut. Continue reading “Poll: Upcoming Star Wars novels”

EU newsbits: Millennium Falcon, LOTF, TFU

IMAGE: Millennium Falcon

Yes Virginia, Millennium Falcon is post-LOTF

I almost spoiled myself over at io9 today, (Spoilers for EVERYTHING at that link) but since even they’re reporting about Invincible I’m just going to cave and report that the people who got the book early are saying that Luceno’s Millennium Falcon is a post-LOTF novel. It gets teased in the back of Invincible, complete with a ‘to be continued…’ (or other words to that effect.) And while there’s more, it’s spoileriffic and thus I don’t know.

I first read this on the TFN boards and may have caught a teensy bit of spoiler in the process, but both EUC and TFN have posted the news since then, so what the hell. It’s tough out here when you’re trying to get the spoilers off limits… At least with friends like these.
