[FONT=Palatino Linotype]"There was Rocketman, trying to get out, and here comes the cliff, and just before the car went off the cliff, he jumped free! And all the kids cheered! But I didn't cheer. I stood right up and started shouting. This isn't what happened last week! Have you all got amnesia? They just cheated us! This isn't fair!

Zombie stormies?! HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! The EU is getting more and more pathetic. Actually decent stuff like that cruisemissle fanfic doesn't get published but fu*king zombie stormies do?
Up, up, and OKAAAAY!!!
I'm a couple chapters into Deathtroopers. It's short (265 pages including three chapters of Outcast).
CU Later. Contracted Universe? Later. :(
The library had a copy of Fate of the Jedi: Omen on the shelf. I checked it out. It's hard getting in to. I don't know if it's the writer's particular style or what. I've never read anything by this author before. I'm on page 60 something now and will continue plugging away.
I haven't picked up Deathtroopers...yet. Between the Borders rewards bucks I have and some nice coupons now until Christmas, I think I can get it at a decent price.
It's the author. I think all first timers now struggle. That's why they go the relay arc route now. The more established ones can fix or carry them for a bit.
I'm at the 100-page mark and it has picked up a bit.
Lol, Teras Kasi!! That's old skool terrible!! Props on that one.
Seriously, they are gonna do the same thing with Star Wars as they did Star Trek. They are gonna wait until the creator (roddenberry/Lucas) dies, and then REBOOT the whole thing.
Trust me. It's gonna happen. Hopefully when they remake it Greedo shoots first and we don't mention (puke) midichlorians. Hopefully Lucas will die soon so someone can undo the damage he has done to the franchise over the last 10 years.
Of course, that opens the door for a film about George Lucas and Gene Roddenberry returning from the dead as film making zombies who won't rest until they get all the cash from our wallets. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!
The redux will occur when it sems SW interest is dying down, and they'll remake it to renew interest a la Star Trek.
Hell, I'd even bet that Lucas might even do it while he's alive to make a few extra bucks. That's all special edition was. Lucas is more about $$$$ than protecting the integrity of his work. I doubt he re-released the original trilogy just so he culd have Greedo shoot first..........follow the money trail.
