TheForce.Net has an interview with Book of Sith author Daniel Wallace. The interview includes some pretty cool answers pertaining to the book and it’s contents.

TFN: Did you draw inspiration from any non-Star Wars sources for the way you wrote these Sith Lords’ inner thoughts? Can you summarize each of their writing styles in one word or phrase?

DW: Just like with The Jedi Path, I tried to understand the Sith philosophy as if it were a real thing. With the Jedi I drew a lot on Catholicism, Buddhism, and Arthurian codes. With the Sith I went even broader since each of the writers was so different. Sorzus Syn is kind of like a lawful evil Dungeons and Dragons magic user. Darth Malgus’s section is like a Napoleonic war journal. Darth Bane is an egotistical combat master. Mother Talzin is like a close-to-nature Wiccan shaman. I viewed Darth Plagueis as a scientific skeptic who wrote like Leonardo da Vinci. And Palpatine is the supremely arrogant know-it-all who thinks he has it all figured out.

Dan also touched upon the 3rd generation of Essential Guides which is still in the works. You can check out the full interview here.

Another Look at the Book of Sith

Star Wars author Daniel Wallace posted some more details about the upcoming Book of Sith: Secrets from the Dark Side on his blog.

For this expose of the dark side we chose not to create a Sith textbook, since the Sith are far too jealous of their own power to share it widely. Instead we created Emperor Palpatine’s personal journal, made from sections of ancient texts that Palpatine ripped from their original sources and bound together in this new volume. The sections that Palpatine chose to preserve illuminate important aspects of Sith philosophy (I tried to draw on real-world influences like Sun Tzu and Leonardo Da Vinci to help ground the belief systems) and presumably gave him the Sith knowledge to execute his galactic takeover.

You can read it all here including a list of some of the commentators readers can expect to see. Book of Sith comes out February 10, 2012.
