I-Five to play major role in ‘The Last Jedi’?

According to Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff’s latest blog post, it’s certainly a possibility.

“He is unique and, in each book in which he appears, that uniqueness is refined upon just a bit. The Last Jedi is, for I-5YQ a tour de force (and no, I didn’t catch the pun until I got to it).  And I have to admit, for reasons I think you’ll understand when you read the book, he was especially fun to write in this Jax Pavan adventure.” -Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff

Whether I-Five will have a major role or not, at least we’ll be seeing more of one of our favorite Star Wars droids. The Last Jedi, written by Michael Reaves and Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff, will be out in paperback on March 26, 2013.

As announced at San Diego Comic Con 2012, Michael Reaves and Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff’s next Star Wars novel will be The Last of the Jedi.

“Another fast-paced, action-packed Star Wars stand-alone mass market original by New York Times bestselling authors Michael Reaves and Maya Kaathryn Bohnhoff!

Ever since Emperor Palpatine’s Order 66–which called for the execution of all Jedi–Jax Pavan is the last Knight around to fight the dark side of the Force. Together with his droid I-5, Jax has eluded Vader time and again, all the while wreaking havoc against the Empire through the underground resistance on Coruscant. But now the Rebel’s leader on the city-planet has been captured, and it’s up to the Last Jedi to ride again…possibly for one final adventure.” –Star Wars Books

Cover art is by Gene Moloica and designed by Scott Biel. The Last of the Jedi was set to be the fourth book in the Coruscant Nights series, however it’s not apparent if that’s still the case even though it will still be using the same characters. Regardless The Last Jedi will be released as a paperback and is tentatively set for release on March 26, 2013. Right now it’s listed at 224 pages.

Suvudu Interviews Shadow Games Co-author Michael Reaves

Suvudu posted an interview with Shadow Games co-author Michael Reaves. The interview covers a range of questions including the origin of geeks, Michael’s television career and work with Dungeon & Dragons, Batman, his favorite comics, Megadeth, Steve Perry, and of course Star Wars. It’s a good sized interview that covers a lot of ground.

Black Sun plays a significant role in Shadow Games. They’re bad, bad guys, and I always found the idea that you could have this very “human” kind of evil alongside the spiritual evil of the Dark Side of the Force an interesting contrast. As a writer, how do you handle portraying these two kinds of evil?

To me they’re not all that different. I don’t believe in evil as an abstraction. As far as I’m concerned (and until I am told differently in a tone I can’t ignore), the Force is sui generis. It’s beyond the labeling of good and evil, because I’ve always felt that “The Devil made me do it” is a cop-out. There’s room for discussion about differences in scale (the “Living Force” vs. the “Cosmic Force”), but ultimately the Force is just the Force. -Michael Reaves
