    I've been waiting for Labyrinth of Evil to come out on paperback for a while.

    I may have to make a quick book run today! :)

    So... Almost done with TJK...

    Jaina and Zekk didn't do anything together, did they? That whole section was a bit surprising, and I couldn't tell what they were hinting at so good.

    I really want this book: Star Wars Chronicles: The Prequels by Stephn J Sansweet and Pablo Hidalgo! But it is listed for $150. Does anyone know if it is going to be offered in soft cover (therefore more affordable?)

    Not that cool! I hadn't heard a price actually, this is the first I have heard a figure. I haven't seen anything on the Lit forum about it anyway...

    As for Scott's question: I think what was agreed on in Lit was that they just cuddled. The whole situation is creepy though, how they finish each others thoughts and such. It's sad too, since Zekk still loves Jaina and she does not love him, at least in that way. But they didn't do the horzontial mamba, no sir./>/>/>/>

    Just finished the Cestus Deception this morning.

    It was interesting, I was hoping for more of a fight between Kenobi & Ventress, but hey I still enjoyed it.

    The short story The Hive was also cool with the booby traps and killer worms.

    I'm getting ready to start reading Medstar I: Battle Surgeons.

    Hope it is good! :)

    I also just finished Cestus Deception . I enjoyed it very much. Action, drama, romance and Jedi battles, deception. Wow a great read. The Hive was cool too, wished they elaborated a bit more. I could have read more of that.

    Uh Spoiler....
    Wow I could not stop reading, near the end. I kept wanting to know more about the relationship of the Clone trooper Nate and the woman Sheeka Tull. that shocked me, but I kept reading, and not able to put it down. I almost cried when he died. This was one of the better books I have read in a while.

    The Medstar books are basically ER, in space, with a Jedi. ;)

    I finished/got around to reading, Last of the Jedi Dark Warning...It was ok..but not as good as the Jedi Quest or the Jedi Apprentice series. This was also the last book with Obi Wan in it and I am thinking what is the point of reading the series then... Ferus Olin and Trever are just not that interesting of characters to carry a series, IMO.

    So true! But not a bad set of books.

    Anyone know when Dressing a Galaxy is coming out? I thought it was to be released by now.

    Plus anyone heard anything on, Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith and Labyrinth of Evil Omnibusby James Luceno and Matthew Stover if or when it is still coming out. I wanted to preorder but could not find it.

    Just a FYI, in case anyone wanted to keep track of new releases. TheForce.net -> http://theforce.net/books/bookschedule.asp offers a list of books and what month they are due out. I find it invaluable... :D

    Medic, it lists the Omnibus as due out in November.

    Here I am, for the first time in a decade, slipping back into the EU, and I can't find the darned book I want!
    I read part one of an 'old-ish' trilogy, and the next part now isn't due out until Feb.?!
    (Hard Contact, Triple Zero, etc.).
    Gah!!
    Nerd Angst! :oops:

    Thanks, I go there pretty often. I cannot find them listed, I did see the 3 rd book of TJK for Dec.

    I saw the poster book and knew it was coming out, and they have not changed that.

    Okay, while looking for something else this evening it required me to move several EU books. That in turn prompted me to count them. I have a current total of 67. I have some that are stored in another spot that I havent counted.

    At last check I had over 80 in books alone, that's excluding TPB's and reference books.

    Is it me or is Jason starting to have hints of being down right evil.

    Um, yeah. I'm concerned that he is on a really slipperly slope towards Sithliness. />/>

    Jacen started having those hints way back in the NJO series.

    And I do indeed think he's going to become the next Sith. But I won't go into my explanation of what I think the Legacy of the Force series is going to be like here. Too many spoilers. PM me instead. ;)
