Don’t forget the Shadows of Mindor chat tonight!
Here in the midwest it feels like we’re buried under a good chunk of Hoth, so a nice warm internet chat after dark seems like a good option… At least as long as you’ve finished Luke Skywalker and the Shadows of Minor. As many a former Star Lady may recall, IRC is a decidedly old-school format, but there are modern options, like a browser-based web client (Firefox recommended) you don’t even need to install. Join us at 8pm Eastern, 5pm Pacific.
And while Mindor is on your mind, go ahead and rate it.
Try to finish Shadows of Mindor by Sunday…
The Expanded Universe chat is holding our Luke Skywalker and the Shadows of Mindor discussion Sunday night at 8pm Eastern / 5pm Pacific. It’s old-school IRC chatting for an old-school style book.
And don’t forget the poll, either.

Out this week: Shadows of Mindor, Legacy, TCW

Comic fans won’t go empty-handed this week, either: Arriving in comic stores on Friday (not Wednesday!) will be The Clone Wars: Crash Course and the Vector conclusion, aka Legacy #31.
