    Cool! I wonder how much will be new information, and how dark it will be?

    If it's on par with The Jedi Path this should be great.

    Okay, this made me laugh. Should be a fun read.

    Considering how great the Jedi Path is, it should be very interesting to see how the Sith are presented. Not to mention I'm curious what era or who the author will be, or even better whether you'll have various Sith scribbling on it and insulting their predecessors/earlier failures. Though honestly I hope it won't be as expensive as the Jedi Path was, but if it is... at least the quality will be worth it.

    Looks like 2012 is going to be the year of the Dark Side. Wonder if it's because of the fanatics claiming the Apocalypse (not the book), is coming next year.

    This is definitely on my list of books to get as soon as it comes out.

    Hmm... is this the same as the rumoured DK book people were talking about last week?

    If not, then awesome; if so, then hopefully it'll be one of DKs less kiddy-oriented volumes.

    I don't think this even IS DK, unless Becker & Mayer is an imprint of theirs, which I'm fairly sure isn't the case.

    EDIT: Ah, right, "Our adult titles span a wide array of nonfiction topics and are published under our clients' names, including, among others, Chronicle Books, HarperCollins, Random House, and Simon & Schuster," so it depends on who the client is.

    If I was to guess which Sith would feature, it would be all the movie Sith, probably Ventress as well, and perhaps Starkiller - unfortunately. On top of that I can see Bane being included, and maybe, at an absolute maybe, Revan, as he was about to go mainstream in TCW. :p

    If it is like the Jedi Path, I wonder what little Sith trinkets will be hidden in it's pages? [face_hypnotized]

    If it's truly like The Jedi Path, then I want to know what sort of sealed coffin it's going to come in.:p

    Silly Zor, you know it won't be in a coffin... it will be in a sarcophagus protected by dark side spirits! :p

    I suspect this will mostly cover Banite Sith, won't it? Would be nice to hear about the ancient Sith, the cults spawned by them, the Rule of Two, the Lost Tribe and eventually the One Sith as well though I think that might be a bit too much for one book. But anyway, would be interesting to see how different in structure a Sith book might have since the Jedi had all sorts of things like the various different corps and councils. Would the Sith have the complete opposite? Or something similar?

    Though it would be too much for one book, I hope it would at least mention the various periods in which the Sith rose & fell. But especially I hope it will cover How Sith philosophy changed from the ancient Sith up until the One Sith. But more on the powers & abilities of the Darkside.

    While the Mayan calendar doesn't end any more than there are no numbers over 9 (or in the Maya world, 19), the choice of Yavin 4 as a Sith temple is apropos, since the pyramids were used for human sacrifice. Though the Aztecs did it more. A lot more. Also, I have to object to any adventure story that involves a human sacrifice to Quetzalcoatl.

    Will there be a broadway show to go along with it?

    Oooh.... this is starting to genuinely sound good.

    Dan's not the type to just write a generic summary of the usual suspects, so this might actually offer some real gems. :)

    That's going to face tough competition, what with Bothans opening the same weekend.

    The Creation of Monsters equals the chapter on Sith procreation then, I hope :p
