Chapter 1 of Darth Plagueis Now Online

It's a <insert religious holiday of your choice here> miracle!  Random House has posted the entire first chapter of the hugely anticipated novel, Darth Plagueis by James Luceno.  You can find the excerpt, featuring the titular character and his Sith Master, Darth Tenebrous, here.  Spoilers below. Some fans may find it interesting to note that the book is divided into parts, with the first part being called Enlistment.  It takes place 67-65 years before the Battle of Yavin. If that chapter excerpt wasn't enough to whet your appetite, the Star Wars Books Facebook page posted this rather intriguing teaser:
“Welcome, Jabba Desilijic Tiure,” Plagueis said.
Allow me to say, zuh?!?! Be sure to check out their Facebook page for more mini-excerpts. The novel will be released in hardback and eBook formats on January 10, 2012.
