One of the most common desires in Harry Potter fan circles is for J.K. Rowling to write a series of books about the Marauders (aka Harry’s father, James Potter, and his best friends from Hogwarts, Sirius Black, Remus Lupin, and Peter Pettigrew). While Rowling has, sadly, shot down ideas about a Marauders prequel in the past, that doesn’t mean that fans can’t take things into their own hands! Enter: Severus Snape and the Marauders, a high-budget Harry Potter fan film, paid for and created entirely by diehard Potterheads.
It’s the little things that can make you smile. Or Geek out! Earlier I tweeted out But my Star Wars Book Challenge and it was also sponsored by this month’s Geek Fuel mystery box.. Didn’t think much of it, till they wrote back and like my tweet..
The embattled Republic reels from the attacks of Grand Admiral Thrawn, who has marshaled the remnants of the Imperial forces and driven the Rebels back with an abominable technology recovered from the Emperor’s secret fortress: clone soldiers. As Thrawn mounts his final siege, Han and Chewbacca struggle to form a coalition of smugglers for a last-ditch attack against the empire, while Leia holds the Alliance together and prepares for the birth of her Jedi twins. Overwhelmed by the ships and clones at Thrawn’s command, the Republic has one last hope–sending a small force, led by Luke Skywalker, into the very stronghold that houses Thrawn’s terrible cloning machines. There a final danger awaits, as the Dark Jedi C’baoth directs the battle against the Rebels and builds his strength to finish what he had already started: the destruction of Luke Skywalker.
What Star Wars novel should I start with?
The Thrawn Trilogy!!
Just finished it for the second time and wow. Still great and complete trilogy, filled with action and amazing storytelling. Zahn bravely pushes the saga in interesting new directions that sets the bar for all the novels that have followed. I think what I like about the each novel in this trilogy is that they have their own arc. Yet Zahn links this them all together in the end of it all. So read this set if you can!!
656 Days until Episode IX
293 Days until the Han Solo Movie
ONE HUNDRED THIRTY TWO DAYS UNTIL THE LAST JEDI
oh In & Out…. I’ve missed you so…
