Star Wars!

Lucasfilm has announced an extension of their deal with Del Rey until 2013, and yours truly is going to be writing a novel set just before the Knights of the Old Republic storyline. Since I am one of those guys who saw the movie (you know, The Movie; you know the one I mean) a dozen times the summer it came out, this is kind of a dream come true. Viva la Geek! Plus, there are some interesting open spaces in the continuity from that period, which give me a lot of room to work. A detailed announcement of the new books until 2011 or so is on StarWars.com here; my book comes out in the fall of 2010. Mark your calendars...

Again, very exciting!! Are you able to say yet if this takes place before the KOTOR game or the KOTOR comics?

I hope that this book will spawn a series of books. I loved the Knights of the Old Republic Games but always wished for a novelization of the main stories. This is the next era for Star Wars to get some serious development. Very Excited

I really hope your main character is female - far far too many stories in the galaxy far far away are centered around male characters (and making Revan a man was something that even now continues to gall me).
