Star Wars Books has posted mini-excerpt #5 for Jeff Grubb’s upcoming novel Star Wars: Scourge.

“I am Mander Zuma,” Mander said in Huttese, “If you are Mika the Hutt, I should tell you that your father is concerned.”

“I am Mika Anjilliac,” said the young Hutt in educated, precise Basic. “My father has every right to have been concerned. Welcome to ground zero for the Endregaad plague.”

Scourge will be out on April 24th. You can check out the previous mini-excerpts here: #1, #2, #3, and #4, plus the Random House excerpt.

Star Wars Books has posted mini-excerpt #4 for Jeff Grubb’s upcoming novel Star Wars: Scourge.

“These Hutts have been very helpful. Even you must admit,” said Mander.

Eddey nodded. “But like Reen says, at their heart, they’re still Hutts. You know that saying Mika quoted, ‘Information is like fruit?’”

“Yes?”

“It’s a Bothan saying,” Eddey said, “They stole it.”

Star Wars Books has posted mini-excerpt #3 for Jeff Grubb’s upcoming novel Star Wars: Scourge.

“Did you Voice her?” asked Reen.

“’Voice’ her?” replied Mander, looking perplexed.

“You know. Voice her. Jedi Hoodoo. Mind tricks.” She made a theatrical wave of her hand. “Tell her ‘You want to let us land on the planet’ or something like that. And then she agrees and we go off.”

“It doesn’t work quite like that,” said Mander.

Scourge will be out on April 24th. You can check out the previous excerpt here: #1, and #2. And feel free to discuss the new excerpt on our forums.

Star Wars Books has posted mini-excerpt #2 for Jeff Grubb’s upcoming novel Star Wars: Scourge.

Another slurred garble, and the droid hesitated. One of the Wookiees smacked it across the back of the head, and it spat out, “Mighty Zonnos wants you to know that even if you fail to find his brother or – Ardos forbid – are too late to save him, you will still have an ally among the Anjiliacs.”

Zonnos waited for the droid to finish, then managed a lazy, single wink. Then it laughed, and for a moment Mander’s blood ran cold.

Scourge will be out on April 24th. You can check out the previous excerpt here. Feel free to discuss the new excerpt on our forums.

Hutt fans, rejoice! The first Scourge mini-excerpt has been posted on Del Rey’s Star Wars Book Facebook page.  The mini-excerpt featured an all new character, Mander:

“A Jedi goes where he is needed,” said Mander. “Your brother, regardless of his fate, knew this. I taught him that, as I myself was taught. I will finish Toro’s task, and if I can, bring those responsible for his death to justice. I would appreciate your help.” He looked at the Bothan. “Both of you.”

Del Rey Editor Erich Schoeneweiss revealed in the comments section that Scourge will take place after the Hand of Thrawn duology and before Survivor’s Quest.   You can read more about Scourge in our exclusive interview with the author, Jeff GrubbScourge goes on sale April 24, 2012 in eBook and paperback formats.
