In episode 12, we discuss the second novel released into the new Star Wars canon, Tarkin, written by James Luceno (Publication Date: November 4, 2014).

News-wise:

Billy-Dee Williams will be repising his role as Lando in Rebels.

The full Force Awakens trailer is rumoured to be coming in front of Avengers 2.

Next, we get into the spoiler-free section where we give the "back cover" plot summary and our overall opinions of the book.

Then, we get into the spoiler section where we get down and dirty with the story. If you haven't finished the book, or haven't started it yet, listen to the first half of this episode then pause it when you hear the alert. Return to this episode of the Star Wars Stacks when you have finished the novel and are ready to hear the full discussion.

A bit of a different show to kick off 2015!

We got together with our good friend and theme song creator Rick Moyer and chat about a bunch of geeky stuff we remember from 2014. We talk about everything from Star Wars to Trek to comics to Mad Men to video games to Sony Walkman and more.

So a big variety of topics this time around just for fun, hope you enjoy our very free form chat!

In about 2 weeks we'll get together for our regular book discussion where we'll discuss our January novel, Tarkin.
