Book News: Official Deathtroopers synopsis:
Posted: 19th February
Hot on the heels of Amazon.co.uk's
[External site - opens in a new window/tab] synopsis for Joe Schreiber's horror novel Deathtroopers, StarWars.com have posted the official summary: When the Imperial prison barge Purge breaks down in a distant, uninhabited part of space, its only hope seems to lie with a Star Destroyer found drifting, derelict and seemingly abandoned. But when a boarding party is sent to scavenge for parts, only half of them come back -- bringing with them a horrific disease so lethal that within hours, nearly all aboard the Purge will die. And death is only the beginning. This is not dissimilar to Amazon.co.uk's[External site - opens in a new window/tab] synopsis, a change in the name of the prison barge, from Virtue to Purge, but no mention of "a certain rogue smuggler and his Wookiee sidekick". So whether Han and Chewie will appear is unknown.

Book News: Darth Bane #3 summary revealed:
Posted: 19th February
As well as the official summary for Deathtroopers, StarWars.com have also released the official summary for Drew Karpyshyn's third Darth Bane novel, Dynasty of Evil: The Sith are gone -- all except Darth Bane, creator of the "Rule of Two," which states that the new Sith Order will consist of only two: a Master and an apprentice. But how does one train an apprentice whose ultimate goal -- and proof of success -- must be to kill the Master?
Darth Bane is beginning to suffer the effects of drawing heavily on the dark side of the Force for so many years. At the same time, he's beginning to doubt his apprentice, Zannah, because she hasn't yet tried to kill him and take his power. Is she weak? Unworthy of being his apprentice? When he learns of an ancient Sith artifact that might hold the secret to immortal life, he heads out in search of it alone. But Zannah is anything but weak, and now that she has glimpsed his worries, she knows that the time is ripe to take him on. The Forces of evil will clash in spectacular battle, with the future of the Sith hanging in the balance!

Darth Bane: Dynasty of Evil's US release has also been brought forward one week from 15th December to the 8th December.

Comic News: Stradley discusses Invasion:
Posted: 19th February
Dark Horse Comics' Senior Editor, Randy Stradley, addressing concerns on Dark Horse Comics' Message Boards of the possible story arc that Star Wars: Invasion could take, wrote: "it was never [Tom Taylor's] -- or my -- intention that this series should exist to "fill in the gaps" of the [New Jedi Order]. The galaxy is a huge place, and even 19 novels can't hope to cover all that transpired during the Yuuzhan Vong invasion. I'm not saying that the series absolutely won't touch on any of the characters or aspects that folks here are speculating about, but neither do I want readers to get their hopes set on a series that patches up the cracks or answers all of the questions from the Del Rey novels". He finished by saying "just like Dark Times is not about Vader hunting down Jedi, Invasion is not about the 'Big Three' fighting the Vong."

Book News: Amazon reveal Imperial Commando: 501st synopsis:
Posted: 18th February
THIS NEWS ITEM CONTAINS SPOILERS
Amazon.co.uk have published a synopsis for Karen Traviss's first Imperial Commando novel, 501st, her sequel to the Republic Commando series: The Clone Wars are over, but the clone deserters' personal battle against the Empire has only just begun. With death warrants on their heads, and a hated Imperial garrison on Mandalore, Kal Skirata's clan of clone veterans, Mando mercenaries, misfit refugees, and a renegade Jedi find all their worst nightmares have followed them home. The search for a cure for the clones' premature aging grows more desperate, and Etain's son must be protected at all costs. Darman and Niner are still stranded in the Imperial legion, and fight to survive in a very different army. But as Mandalore prepares to resist Palpatine's new order, Skirata is forced to give safe haven to those he hates most, and some he thought were dead. Clan Skirata thinks things can't possibly get any worse - until their ragtag private army faces the reality of fighting the Empire. Their most lethal enemies are now their own brothers.
Imperial Commando: 501st is due for release in paperback in the US on 29th September and in the UK on 8th October.


Book News: Amazon reveal Deathtroopers synopsis:
Posted: 16th February
THIS NEWS ITEM CONTAINS SPOILERS
Amazon.co.uk have published a synopsis for Joe Schreiber's horror novel Deathtroopers and it looks like it features Han and Chewbacca: In the time immediately following the destruction of the Death Star and the years between the Battle of Yavin and the foundation of the Rebel Base on Hoth, the Empire's grip on the galaxy has become an unyielding fist of retribution. Pressed into action by Emperor Palpatine, Imperial forces have stepped up efforts to hunt down and imprison Rebel sympathizers, shipping them off to newly formed detainment moons via huge prison barges. By necessity these barges are floating chambers of degradation and vice, notoriously unreliable spacecraft staffed by Imperial corrections officers whose cruelty rivals that of the inmates. The Imperial Prison Barge Virtue is hauling its load of prisoners, criminals and murderers, human and non-human, across the galaxy, when it breaks down in deep space. Soon after, the ship's warden discovers a derelict Star Destroyer, seemingly abandoned, and sends a boarding party to scavenge parts to repair the Virtue. Half of them don't come back. The ones that do are infected with a virus so deadly that within hours, it has wiped out ninety-nine percent of the barge's population. But for the handful of survivors - two brothers, the Virtue's female chief medical officer, and a sadistic captain of the guards, along with a certain rogue smuggler and his Wookiee sidekick - the true horror is just begun. Because those inmates and guards who died of the virus don't stay dead...and when they come back, they're extremely hungry. Against their better judgment, the survivors take refuge aboard the massive creaking emptiness of the Destroyer, only to discover that its original population has not disappeared at all - and that they've been waiting for them. However LucasBooks' Executive Editor Sue Rostoni has stated that Deathtroopers will be set 2 years before the Battle of Yavin, not between A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back, so perhaps this synopsis is from an early draft but if the setting is readjusted to 2 years prior to A New Hope then the setting would be closer to The Force Unleashed's story of the formation of the Rebel Alliance ("Rebel sympathizers").
Deathtroopers is expected later this year in hardback.


Book News: ...and for Abyss:
Posted: 16th February
THIS NEWS ITEM CONTAINS SPOILERS
Amazon.co.uk have published a short synopsis for the third Fate of the Jedi book, Abyss: Luke and Ben Skywalker arrive in the mysterious part of space called
The Maw in search of more clues as to what caused Jacen Solo's downfall into the dark side. But they are not the only ones exploring The Maw: a Sith Master and her apprentice arrive there, too, having followed the delinquent ancient Sith ship found by Ben in The Legacy of the Force - and they're thrilled to find Luke there, because they are determined to kill him. But there's another powerful being hiding in The Maw. It's enormously strong, purely evil, and it has its own plans for Luke Skywalker...
Abyss will be written by Troy Denning and available from August in hardback.

Comic News: The future of Legacy and KotOR comics:
Posted: 8th February
THIS NEWS ITEM CONTAINS SPOILERS
News from New York Comic-Con: Newsarama.com are reporting that Dark Horse Comics' panel concsisting of Randy Stradley (Star Wars Editor) and Jan Duursema (artist Legacy) discussed the future for Legacy and Knights of the Old Republic comic series.

Later this year, Cade will travel to Tatooine for a "story involving his pirate activities". While on Tatooine, "heíll meet some family heís never met before". Stradley told "fleet junkies" to look forward to a "battle between three different star fleets". Ron Felís Imperial fleet and the Galactic Alliance fleet run into a Sith fleet. The arc will have "lots of back and forth" and will see "alliances stretched to breaking point".
As for Knights of the Old Republic: Next in the series, [Zayne Carrick] set out with a group of pirate allies who believe that they have free run of the galaxy, but "Zane (sic.) has plans of his own... Brian Ching is coming back to the interior art," Stradley confirmed.

Book News: Omen's plot revealed & Darth Bane #3 named:
Posted: 8th February
THIS NEWS ITEM CONTAINS SPOILERS
StarWars.com have published the synopsis for the second Fate of the Jedi book, Omen: The Jedi Order is in crisis. The late Jacen Solo's shocking transformation into murderous Sith Lord Darth Caedus has cast a damning pall over those who wield the Force for good. Two Jedi Knights have succumbed to an inexplicable and dangerous psychosis. Criminal charges have driven Luke Skywalker into self-imposed exile. And power-hungry Chief of State Natasi Daala is exploiting anti-Jedi sentiment to undermine the Order's influence within the Galactic Alliance.
Forbidden to intervene in Jedi affairs, Luke is on a desperate mission to uncover the truth behind Jacen's fall to the dark side -- and to learn what's turning peaceful Jedi into raving lunatics. But finding answers will mean venturing into the mind-bending space of the Kathol Rift, and bargaining with an alien species as likely to destroy outsiders as deal with them. Still, there is no other choice and no time to lose, as the catastrophic events on Coruscant continue to escalate. Stricken by the same violent dementia that infected her brother, Valin, Jedi Knight Jysella Horn faces an equally grim fate after her capture by Daala's police. And when Han and Leia Solo narrowly foil another deranged Jedi bent on deadly destruction, even acting Grand Master Kenth Hamner appears willing to bow to Daala's iron will -- at the expense of the Jedi Order.
But an even greater threat is looming. Millennia in the past, a Sith starship crashed on an unknown, low-tech planet, leaving the survivors stranded. Over the generations, their numbers have grown anew, the ways of the dark side have been nurtured, and the time is fast approaching when this lost tribe of Sith will once more take to the stars to reclaim their legendary destiny as rulers of the galaxy. Only one thing stands in their way to dominance, a name whispered to them through the Force: Skywalker.

UPDATE: Writing on TheForce.net's Jedi Council[External site - opens in a new window/tab] forum, Dark Horse Comics' editor Randy Stradley denied their involvement in this comic story: "I feel that I should state for the record that this is NOT a Dark Horse title, and it is NOT on our publishing schedule.
