This week, Beyonder Jim Lehane joins Mark and Nathan to discuss Kevin Hearne’s first Star Wars story.


Staying SPOILER-FREE for the first 25 minutes, your hosts get into the deeper angles of Hearne’s storytelling.

This episode your hosts discuss things like:

  • why would you have a bathtub in space?
  • is LUKE the Rebellions BEST option to secure a line on arms?
  • How did it go from being Empire and Rebellion #3, to becoming a standalone in the new canon?
  • The first 1st Person point of view novel since I, Jedi
  • some great moments of dialog: “Unidentified hole. Shut it”
  • Luke gets a 2nd lightsaber
  • example of diversity that hides in plain site
  • did the audiobook’s Nakari kill the romance by her dry accent?
  • it had an RPG/ Lord of the Rings series of events journeys to it.
  • the skull borers; raising the horror factor a bit, even if for only a moment
  • Could Darth Vader be Luke’s last hope to learn about the Force?
  • Is Vader a tragic victim of the Rebellion? Always being punished for their victories?
  • Is the Dark Side Hot? Or Cold? Or both? Or something else entirety?
  • Math and Science vs Faith as a theme
  • Star Tours finds the solution to Nate’s nitpick about lightspeed and lines
  • And more!

Once more your hosts cover entirely too much Luke Skywalker action this episode. But don’t worry, give it a go; you’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you might even get a little education on Star Wars while you’re at it. But no matter how you slice it and dice it, you’ll be having another adventure Beyond the Films. So sit back, hang on, enjoy the show, and may the Force be with you!
