    I ordered a copy of Star by Star from the
    kiosk of my bookstore Chapters.ca and it came
    yesterday just when I was about to go to work. And the book won't be coming out till
    the 30th. I was suprised. I wasn't expecting
    it to come in the mail till November. But
    it was my lucky day. The book is 606 pages
    long. It's really thick. There's lots of
    action in it. I'm gonna start reading it
    right now!

    Great, now I have to run to all the stores and look for it. ;)

    At least we have a confirmation of the page count.

    When you read it, post spoilers in the SBS spoiler thread. I'm dying to know what was left out of the audiobook.

    Um, Wedge, remember VOTF, the last really long book?

    Oh well, at least SBS seems like it will have action....

    I know, I know. Thats why I always said I didn't think a big book = a good book.

    But SbS... yum. From the excerpt it seemed very nice. I'm sure I'll enjoy it. I hope I love it.

    Wedge, get on IM already! Are you avoiding us?

    And judging by my track record, I'll get it before it's officially out. At least I hope.

    Yes Wedge, get on IM! I've been wanting to talk to you for a couple of days now.

    606 pages... wouldn't that make this the longest Star Wars novel out there? Of course, the margins might be larger than those in VotF, and the print could take up more space.

    Corless, you're one of the contest winners, right. That means you're under contract and can't post any spoilers until the book comes out in the bookstores on Halloweed Eve (30th). So keep quiet until then, and send your review to sstarwars.com ASAP.

    LOL. Its good to be wanted. :) Sorry, DVD and all, been busy.

    Yes, be sure to tell us about the infamous fate of Coruscant. Lots of conflicting info about that. Please? Thanks.

    No I'm not one of the contest winners. I just got in the mail early that's all.
    I just got lucky. When I have read it I'll post all the spoilers.

    Man, Amazon usually gets me my copy earlier. They've failed me this time. :) Oh well, I guess DelRey really tightened the screws on this one...

    I have a good feeling about "Star By Star". Troy Denning is a good author- I really enjoyed his five book Dark Sun series, The Prism Pentad. Plus I corresponded with him several years ago over e-mail about AD&D and Dark Sun in general, he's a pretty much decent fellow who I enjoyed talking with. He was far more open in discussing Dark Sun than Margaret Weiss was about Dragonlance at any rate.

    Why can't they come out early in the US where I live, they're always a day late or so.

    Gandolf the Grey, I must commend you on your knowledge. Not many people would catch the implications of the number 616.
