Star Wars Books posted a new mini-excerpt from Timothy Zahn’s upcoming novel Scoundrels.

Han thought about denying it. But unfortunately, it was the truth. “So what have you been up to lately?”

“Not much,” Lando said, waving a hand vaguely. “Winning some, losing some. You?”

Han shrugged. I picked up some crazy passengers, rescued a princess, fought stormtroopers and TIE fighters, helped save the galaxy, and got my reward snatched right off my ship by pirates. “Not much,” he said aloud. “Why are YOU here?”

Happy Birthday, Dave Wolverton

May 1, 2012 at 10:40 am | Posted in Birthday, Regular Feature | Leave a comment

Well known in SWEU, Dave Wolverton,turns the milestone of 55 today.  In The Courtship of Princess Leia, the author not only introduced us to Hapans, the Witches of Dathomir and the Nightsisters (featured prominently this last season on The Clone Wars), he also (finally) married off Han and Leia.

In fact, Dave’s influence on the EU is significant and ongoing.  While he hasn’t penned a Star Wars novel in awhile, he paired up Prince Isolder and Tenenial Djo — the parents of Hapan Queen Mother Tenel Ka, who was Jacen Solo’s love and the mother of his daughter Allana.

Dave Wolverton also wrote the introductory Jedi Apprentice novel, The Rising Force, creating the definitive young Obi-Wan Kenobi.  In addition Dave writes fantasy novels under the pen name David Farland.

Roqoo Depot wishes Dave Wolverton a very happy birthday.

This image of the Large Magellanic Cloud (dwarf satellite galaxy of the Milky Way) was taken by the NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope’s Wide Field Planetary Camera 2.  This loose star cluster — known as a stellar grouping — is classified as an OB association.  OB’s usually contain 10-100 high mass stars with brilliant but short lives.  Speculations is that most of the Milky Way’s stars were created in OB associations.
