    I do all my reading on the kindle these days. But the funny part is that I've owned a physical copy for years. It's one of the first EU books I've ever had. I just never read it :p

    There is one other option: the guy who plays Littlefinger on Game of Thrones. It's practically the same role.

    Important note on tomorrow's article: no, we did not publish our April Fool's piece early by mistake.

    You have interviewed Derek J. Reda?

    And you just spoiled that you will have an April Fool's piece coming.

    Actually that's the trick. You'll be expecting a silly trick and you'll get our most serious article yet!

    Gonna be honest, Coop, after reading the latest article, I really really want it to be so. For all of the other Escape Pod features, I think the Hoojibs actually work shockingly well exactly the way you mention within the Star Wars formula and you have me wishing that it happens. Which, considering that I've never read a single issue of Marvel Star Wars, is a pretty tall order.

    Seconded. Their episodes were some of Marvel SW's more fun ones.

    It was until yesterday when I gave away my spare copy of the paperback edition to the daughter of a friend.

    Meanwhile, back in the medlab, a tribble gets revived by the magic blood of a guy who was genetically enhanced so you can hit him really hard.
