Emails 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, and 60 will win a book. May the Force be with you. Winners will be notified via email this week.

Trust me, you’re going to want to read this book, and in case anyone’s unaware of this book, here’s the synopsis from Random House:

Tatooine—a harsh desert world where farmers toil in the heat of two suns while trying to protect themselves and their loved ones from the marauding Tusken Raiders. A backwater planet on the edge of civilized space. And an unlikely place to find a Jedi Master in hiding, or an orphaned infant boy on whose tiny shoulders rests the future of a galaxy.

Known to locals only as “Ben,” the bearded and robed offworlder is an enigmatic stranger who keeps to himself, shares nothing of his past, and goes to great pains to remain an outsider. But as tensions escalate between the farmers and a tribe of Sand People led by a ruthless war chief, Ben finds himself drawn into the fight, endangering the very mission that brought him to Tatooine.

Ben—Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi, hero of the Clone Wars, traitor to the Empire, and protector of the galaxy’s last hope—can no more turn his back on evil than he can reject his Jedi training. And when blood is unjustly spilled, innocent lives threatened, and a ruthless opponent unmasked, Ben has no choice but to call on the wisdom of the Jedi—and the formidable power of the Force—in his never-ending fight for justice.

Mike Mayhew Interview Part III

Bleeding Cool has posted part three of their interview with The Star Wars artist Mike Mayhew.

Moving on to the ships, my first question has to be why exactly is there a guy on the wing of the Aquilae Fighter? Was that ever called the Shatner seat?

Mike Mayhew: Well, the Aquilaen Fighter was designed by and modeled for me by artist Sean Cooke. I think the concept was always that the pilots in the rough draft always had some co-pilot or wingman on board, a role that was later changed to an R2 unit. The rough draft describes him in a bubble. I figure he operates the main laser turret and other armaments. I think Sean did a great job of creating a similar, yet very different ship for our story.

Click here to read the full interview. As much as I love hearing Mike talk about spaceships and the cool McQuarrie art they’re looking at for the project, I think my biggest fanboy moment would be his mention of using Robert Shaw as a likeness for Vader. Jaws plus Star Wars is a win-win.

‘Razor’s Edge’ Micro-Excerpt

Star Wars Books have released the first micro-excerpt for Razor’s Edge by Martha Wells.

Han took two long strides to catch up with her, shouldered past Jerell, and said, “I know what you’re doing.”

“I know what I’m doing, too,” Leia said, and congratulated herself on her even tone. She stopped at the first pod hatch and opened the control pad to initiate the automatic systems check. The pods were meant for the larger crew complement of the Gamble’s pre-conversion state; each one had room for five large passengers.

“Yeah, you’ll either talk them out of this, or die trying.” Han leaned
against the bulkhead beside her, his voice low and grim. “Or make sure they die trying.”

Leia’s hand froze on the control pad. It was odd that, in this moment, it was Han of all people who seemed to understand what this meant to her.
