Geek Life posted an interview with Scourge author Jeff Grubb yesterday. Jeff talks about his first experience with Star Wars, working with continuity, his suggestion of a Hutt cover, his ideas behind Mander Zuma, and more. I also really liked his answer to this question because it mentioned a theme I spotted when reading about the Hutts and their family.
Other than Canon what were your influences for Hutt Space in the novel, Scourge?
JG: A big influence was another great movie from the 1970s – The Godfather. How I treated the Hutts was very much about the balance of family and business – even though it is extremely nasty business. It is a given that the Hutts are the gangsters of space. What this book does and examines how that fits together with the Hutt concepts of family, which can make them vulnerable.

And don’t forget, later today Jeff Grubb will be doing a live Facebook chat on Star Wars Books Facebook page at 4:00 PM EDT.
