30 Doradus nebula is a star birth region in the Large Magellanic Cloud.  The image was taken by Hubble’s Wide Field Camera 3 in ultraviolet, visible and red light, and this grouping alone spans 100 light years.  Several of these beautiful ice blue stars, at 100 times more massive than our sun, are among the largest known stars.

Fate of the Jedi: Apocalypse is out today. To kick things off, we have an interview with the author, Troy Denning which you can read here. We asked Troy about the events of the book, how things led up to this, and what we might expect in the future. Be warned, the interview does include spoilers from the novel.

We also have several reviews of Apocalypse. On one hand, Corax, Synlah and I weigh in on a round-robin review that delves into some heavy spoilers. For a differing opinion, LaneWinree chimes in with his reservations on the novel.

Apocalypse is the last novel in the Fate of the Jedi series and is available in hardback and digital editions. The book also includes excerpts for Aaron Allston’s upcoming novel X-Wing: Mercy Kill and Jeff Grubb’s Star Wars: Scourge.
