Fan Blog Shout Outs go to:

EU Cantina for their Summer Children’s Literacy Program.  EUC has kicked off a two month campaign to raise awareness and funds for children’s literacy.  You can check it out here.

Need more female perspective in your Star Wars (yes, you do)?  Check out Fangirl Blog’s Blood, Honor and Matriarchs series, where they discuss the role of Hapans in Star Wars.  You can find part 1 here and part 2 here.

LightSaber Rattling’s Peter Morrison has posted an unofficial Star Wars: Clone Wars motion comic, The Siren of Dathomir, by Joe Hogan which is worth a check out.

Here’s to Knight’s Archive for snaring the latest Scoundrels blurb.  Good catch.

Our last shout out goes to just about every fan blog for getting the news out there about TOS’s Star Wars Reads Day (October 6, 2012).  Since the shout out goes to everybody, we’re just going to link the official announcement.

Stephen King Alert: Syfy is developing, as a long form project, King’s 1987 bestseller, The Eyes of the Dragon.  On board for the script are I, Robot’s Jeff Vintar and Battlestar Galactica’s Michael Taylor; executive producers are Taylor and Bill Haber.  The Eyes of the Dragon has something in common with King’s other works. Although it is set in a fictional world where a young prince (falsely accused of  and imprisoned for his father’s murder) must face a devious wizard, Eyes continues King’s practice of a character who’s appeared in his other works.  In this case, Flagg, who was in both the Dark Tower series and The Stand.

A Novel Approach to Novels:  How many times have you seen the question, “Hai, I’m new to the Star Wars Expanded Universe, and want to start reading the books.  Where do I start?”.  If you’re like us, you’ve heard it a lot.  Since there are about a bazillion Star Wars books (well, maybe not that many, but it seems like it), that’s a tall order and totally subjective to boot.  One reader’s soaring-to-new-heights novel is going to be another’s total dreck so how to advise?  Well, Tricia at Fangirl Cantina has come up with what we think is really a good idea.  You can check out her  where to start* article here, and why didn’t someone think of it sooner?

*Most frequent answer: Zim Zahn’s Thrawn Trilogy.  We have heard of readers who actually didn’t like The Thrawn Trilogy, but we don’t know them personally.  We don’t associate with people like that.

Support a Worthy Cause:  Speaking of the Star Wars Expanded Universe, EU Cantina has come up with a way to flaunt your total nerditude and be charitable.  Buy a #SWEU T shirt from them and their profit from the shirt will be donated to RIF (Reading is Fundamental) to support literacy.  You can get the details here.

Friday Fun:  Here’s a LOL to start the weekend with.  Personally, I’d hire this guy on the spot.
