Episode Description

In episode 67, we change course a bit quickly, instead of reviewing Last Shot, we call a mulligan and change course. Chris and Jen (Joe fell ill unfortunately) discuss the metric ton of recent Star Wars and other genre news.

If you would still like to read Last Shot, grab it from Amazon.

In the place of the Solo book we will pick up next time with Thrawn: Alliances.

In episode 13, we review the second novel based on Star Wars: The Old Republic MMO, Deceived, written by Paul S. Kemp (Publication Date: March 22, 2011). 

Not much in the news aside from a big spoiler dump (which we won't post, find it if you'd like to read it) and rumours that J.J. Abrams is petitioning Disney to move the release date to summer.

Next, we give our spoiler-free synopsis and general opinions on the book.

In two weeks we'll have our usual general disucssion show. After that we'll be disucssing our next book: Heir to the Jedi by Kevin Hearne. This is the next book to come out in the "new" Star Wars canon so we're excited to read it!
