We talk to Bryan about how much he likes the Prequels, Return of the Jedi, and the Legacy of the Force novels. Also how his kids got such cool names.
Chewbacca Lives! We discuss the unconfirmed news that Chewbacca will be in Episode VII and how Expanded Universe fans feel about that.
Book review. Finally we discuss and review the novel Maul: Lockdown
Star Wars Reads Day was this past Saturday and I attended the event in Lancaster, PA. The event was a ton of fun and I would recommend it to all Star Wars fans, especially if you have kids. One of the highlights was the attendance of Star Wars author Joe Schreiber. He is the author of the novels Death Troopers and Red Harvest, but the novel I was excited to hear about was his upcoming Maul: Lockdown.
As Schreiber began to do a reading from the book I decided to turn on my phone’s voice recorder to see if I could catch some good audio for the show. I’m glad I did. The reading from Lockdown ended up being a battle between Darth Maul and a Yuuzhan Vong! Schreiber also had some very interesting things to say about the story and development of the book.
One topic covered in this episode was the Twitter Star Wars Fansite Seminar, an ongoing Twitter discussion with many different fansites and their representatives on how to best manage a Star Wars fansite. Yours truly also had great fun participating in this!
Though it was hectic, it was great fun to record live, while following the news and interacting with everyone!
Death troopers is one of my favorite EU works over the past few years. I’m super excited about this one.
From the mind of Joe Schreiber, New York Times bestselling author of Star Wars: Death Troopers, comes the delirious follow-up to last year’s Darth Plagueis. In a tale of retribution and survival set before the events of The Phantom Menace, Darth Plagueis and Darth Sidious dispatch Sith apprentice Darth Maul on a secret mission to infiltrate a criminal empire operating from inside Cog Hive Seven-a hidden prison teeming with the galaxy’s most savage criminals. There, he must contend against the scummiest and most villainous in gladiatorial death matches while carrying out his masters’ clandestine commands. Failure is not an option; success will ignite the revenge of the Sith against the Jedi Order.
