    Correctimondo... :D

    Something to do with the Chiss...so I think it's Zahn. And I am sure the title has something to do with a king...

    Ah! I think it's called Edge of Darkness I: The Joiner King... [face_plain]

    Stupid title...and I don't like the premise of the story, either. [face_plain]

    I prefer Stover, Stackpole and Allston...

    And I think I could be wrong. There's something else by Zahn called 'Outbound Flight Project' or somesuch. It's about the Katana Fleet, from memory. Kinda post RotS, I think...
    But then there's 'The Joiner King' as well... [face_worried]

    yep he does outbound flight as well.
    I like the authors you mentioned as well. Zahn created one of the most interesting characters for me - MARA JADE :D

    *tickles Mel* You're a wraith AND a Rogue now? Congrats! :D


    And I like Zahn. The Thrawn trilogy was pretty interesting...and the duology was alright. But Stackpole will always be my favourite (of the books I've read anyway) And I counted my books last night and I have nearly 50...thats a lot of money... [face_worried]

    Anyway, I'm interested to read the Outbound project book, as it's one of those oft refered to but never solidified ideas that seem to float in and out of various peoples stories. I think it was first mentioned in 'The Courtship of Princes Leia'...although by shoddy memory can be off sometimes.

    I've tried not to read much about the Joiner King storyline, but I have to say it sounds interesting, in a Saturday morning cartoon kinda way :(

    Be wary...with two weeks to go (almost), there are billboards and posters all over the place!! Last time I knew, there's a really big on in Crows Nest/St Leonards (Sydney people might know where i am talking about...). There are more, I tell you! [face_worried]

    Not that I really care. But those anti-spoiler people might. :p

    Because when we had a meet on Saturday, they were told what characters were on them ;)

    Biggest laugh I got out of them was when they were going to Galaxy bookstore, and i had them afraid to walk down the stairs because I told them there was a life size cardboard standee of an ep3 character at the bottom of the stairs.

    They all got kinda touchy when they realised it was Darth vader [face_laugh]

    I remember someone, but I'm not sure who, saying that there should be more star wars shirts for girls. so imagine my surprise when I found the following at Target

    top right hand side

    so there you go, just thought i'd mention that.

    and the Episode III video game is officially out tomorrow. By all accounts, this is well worth checking out (though be warned, don't get it until after the movie if you want to stay clear of spoilers).

    The Leia one is just as bad. If there was anything that Leia wasn't it was a pretty little princess...


    And don't even get me started on the ******* pink thing... [face_plain]
