Star Wars Horror NovelMeh
Now this is pretty damn cool. LucasArts has tapped author Joe Schreiber to do a Star Wars Horror Novel. On his site he has some cool artwork in relation to the books release. The book is reportedly called DeathTroopers and he says the following about it on his blog;
I'm interrupting Stillwater -- which is about halfway posted, more of which to come later tonight -- to drop some news I've been dying to release for, oh, about five months now.
I'm going to be writing a Star Wars horror novel for Lucasfilm, to be released in November of 2009. And although I've been specifically asked not to talk about the content of the book, I can tell you that A) It's going to be very scary and B) It's hopefully going to be released on the same day that my original horror novel The Black Wing comes out.
I'm thrilled (to death, obviously) to have this opportunity, and almost as thrilled to tell you about it here. Stay tuned for all the updates.
I am a huge Star Wars fan and the fact they are doing a horror novel based on the Star Wars franchise is awesome. How long till they spin that into a movie franchise?
