Del Rey has posted the first micro excerpt for Maul: Lockdown by Joe Schreiber.

Maul stared at the thing. The gray slope of its face was a surgeon’s nightmare of ritualistic scars, metal rings and studs, wire loops, and hooks, with bluish sacks pulsating beneath its eyes, all of it siphoning down and inward toward a gaping, razor-toothed mouth. Even its arms seemed to have been plucked from two different organisms. The right hand was a blunt-knuckled fist, the left an elongated spider-fingered claw. Together they formed a mallet and blade, one made for pounding, the other for slashing. It was the right that had come careening out of nowhere just seconds before, slamming Maul backward and knocking out one of his teeth.

The thing reached down and picked up Maul’s incisor from the floor of the cell. Straightening up, it shoved the tooth into an empty space in its own mouth, twisting it until it lodged in place. Then it grinned at Maul as if asking how he liked the sight of one of his teeth in its mouth—another trophy for its collection.

Maul gazed back at it.
And then the rage came.

And the rage was good.

Maul: Lockdown will be out on January 28, 2014 in hardcover, digital and audiobook formats. Fans can look forward to a prequel short story for the book in Star Wars Insider which will be titled “The Syrox Redemption.” According to Star Wars Books, “it sets the stage for one of the big bad evils in Lockdown.” The short story will feature illustrations by John Van Fleet.

Today we wish a happy birthday to one of the most prolific female Star Wars authors, Rebecca Moesta. With twenty Star Wars books to her credit (many of them co-written with her husband, Kevin J. Anderson), fans will most likely remember her from the Young Jedi Knights and Junior Jedi Knights series. For those who stuck just to the adult Star Wars novels, she also wrote “The Ranat’s Tale” in Tales from the Mos Eisley Cantina.

You can check out more about Rebecca on her and Kevin J. Anderson’s official site Wordfire.
