I wouldn't be bothered if I was wrong. I'd actually look forward to being surprised. But if it is the case that they kill Luke...be prepared to see signs and stickers on the books in the stores that say "The Exciting Final Chapter for Luke Skywalker"..."Luke Dies!" Because this book will sell millions of copies to uninitiated masses...and the stores will want to be SURE that people know EXACTLY which book it is. Which is why I would conclude having Luke on said cover makes pragmatic marketing sense. Maybe the cover is a ruse to throw us off...but I think that might be giving us too much credit, and discounting the impact of Luke's death to popular culture at large. I honestly think if he does die, LFL might have a press conference on it prior to release...say on May 25, the thirtieth anniversary of ANH...and all our "spoiler proofing" will be for not. I could be wrong...I could live with that...I would welcome that...but I don't think I will be.
